RASCAL and Covid-19


On the 1st of July, the NSW Government had a relaxing of their restrictions and using this information the committee has worked hard to quickly respond and get to reopening the lodge. We have a COVID-19 management plan in place to support use of the lodge and it is available here. This plan draws on the guidelines around Holiday Homes and Holiday Rentals.

However, we are not able to open using the traditional casual booking RASCAL model. We have moved to 5 night block bookings instead and these are available for Wednesday afternoon check-in to Monday morning check-out to allow the lodge to be cleaned in-between each booking. Please see the bookings page for information on making a block booking between now and the end of September. As bookings are being manually added by our office manager, there will be a delay between a booking being allocated and it appearing on the booking calendar. A Waiver of Liability for all Lodge users is here.

COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving situation and while everyone is working to return to normal as quickly as possible there are many situations which are outside of our control. The focus of the committee has been to allow our members and their guests to be able to use the lodge and enjoy some time in the Jindabyne area without exposing the club, its officers, our members and their guests, or the broader community to unnecessary risk. While COVID-19 remains under control in NSW and the Snowy Mountain region, this should be able to occur under the regime that we have proposed, however should this be taken out of our hands by a tightening of the control measures by the NSW Government we will have to perform a further review.

Finally - thank you all for your patience. We are swimming in uncharted waters at the moment. It would be fair to say that the standard RASCAL operating model simply could not support safe operation of the lodge under the current conditions. We will continue to work to lift restrictions as we can and will keep you all up to date as we can improve your access to the lodge and return to a more normal operating model.



Please contact the our Office Manager (Lee-Ann Swift) or the President (Colin McLean - 0414 146448) if you have any questions about this.
