Ingleburn RSL Re-Opening

A MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

On behalf of the Board of Directors, management, staff and myself, I am looking forward to welcoming you back to Ingleburn RSL from 10am Monday 1 June.

The last few months have been challenging to say the least. We as a Club and as a society have had to rethink the way we conduct our everyday lives due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our staff have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to prepare for re-opening and I can assure you that our CovidSAFE plan is in place and ready to go!  As always, the safety of our staff, members and their guest is always our highest priority.

The way we operate as a Club has changed. We have implemented several measures to ensure that the health and safety of our members, guests, staff and contractors remains the priority. Measures such as social distancing, entry & capacity restrictions, re-arrangement of our tables/chairs within our dining areas, regular cleaning of high-touch areas and hand sanitisers stations have been implemented throughout the Club.

For the foreseeable future, our promotions, entertainment, bingo/cash housie, poker, trivia, raffles, point of sale membership card swipes and courtesy bus will be suspended. This is to minimise the potential risk of an outbreak within our facility. We will continue to monitor the Government and Health advice and will work to towards returning these as soon as possible. Please follow our social media pages and visit our website for regular updates.

Once again, we thank you for your continued support and patronage to Ingleburn RSL and I look forward to seeing you around the Club.

Listed below is a summary of how the Club will operate to assist you with what to expect during this new norm.

  • Members only.  All members & their guests, must sign in. Minors are excluded.
  • Access (entry & exit) to the Club via the Main Foyer – separate entry and exit doors – social distancing whilst waiting to enter
  • Continued on-site cleaning and sanitisation
  • Hand sanitiser stations throughout the Club
  • 1.5-metre & ‘keep distance’ floor decals for social distancing
  • Spaced seating throughout Salute, Café, Sports Bar / TAB and Tabatinga
  • Membership cards will not be used for food and beverage purchases.  Members pricing will be in place
  • Application of capacity restrictions.
  • Members and Staff of the Club will be asked if they are feeling unwell or recently returned from overseas, have been in the company of someone who has been unwell, or are presenting symptoms of COVID-19 to seek medical attention and Stay at Home
  • CovidSAFE Marshalls will assist Members & Guests with directions, Social Distancing, Promoting Good Hygiene Practices and Dinning Area Patron Limits.

Thank you for your understanding at this time as we navigate the current round of operating requirements

NRL FOOTY TIPPING COMPETITION

Wednesday 27 May, 2020

Dear Members,

RE: INGLEBURN RSL – NRL FOOTY TIPPING COMPETITION

Whilst we gear up to reopen, we have received a few telephone calls and Facebook posts enquiring about our NRL Footy Tipping Competition.

At this time, we have made the decision to continue with the ‘suspension’ of the tipping competition. This is due to venue restrictions and strict rules and procedures that will be in place when we do reopen. We may consider a relaunch later in the season depending on the rules, regulations at the time and any further easing of restrictions.

We apologise for this decision, however patron safety and adherence to the rules and regulations is our priority.
We sincerely hope you understand and have patience whilst we navigate safely through the new normal.

Thank you
Ingleburn RSL Club

Ingleburn RSL to Reopen

Tuesday 26 May, 2020

Dear Members,

The announcement by the NSW State Government on Friday 22nd May to ease restrictions on Clubs & Restaurants permits me to let you know Ingleburn RSL plans to reopen as of 10am, Monday 1st June.

Behind the scenes the Ingleburn RSL Team has been busy working towards welcoming back our Members to the Club. There will, however, be several changes that have had to be made to our club layout and operations in order to comply with Health and Government guidelines. This includes but is not limited to Social Distancing and Patron number limits and restrictions. The specifics of these rules and guidelines are still to be finalised and advised by our industry association. Once the details are available, we will be in touch again to ensure you are well informed.

The health and safety of members and our staff team are of the highest importance. We stress again, your safety is our priority. Plans are in place to ensure that we are well prepared to welcome you back to a COVID-Safe environment. We know that you are keen to understand how our COVID-Safe Plan will be part of your visit to Ingleburn RSL, and of course, we will share this information with you prior to, and upon reopening.

As previously touched on, once the Club does re-open things will be different and include likely changes to;
– our trading hours
– food & beverage offering
– seating options and layouts
– courtesy bus
– promotions, raffles, bingo, cash housie, footy tipping, poker, trivia, members draw, major promotions, meetings, functions, and member services.

Given the new operating environment these events will be altered, postponed, and in many cases, there will be staggered return dates as restrictions are further eased, in addition to club operational requirements and considerations. Things will be different, but at least we will be back.

We once again thank you for your patience and support during this time and we will continue to provide you with updates regarding our re-opening.

Subject to final Health Department and ClubsNSW advice and direction, it’s ‘all systems go!’ come Monday 1st June 2020.

We cannot wait to welcome you back to Ingleburn RSL!

Sincerely,

Glenn Cushion
Chief Executive Officer
Ingleburn RSL Club
