Newsletter – September 3, 2020

Dear Members,

Over the next 1-2 weeks, you will receive your membership renewal details for Fairhaven SLSC – Season 2020-2021 via email.

Now, more than ever, we need your support!

Like many organisations, FSLSC will sustain significant financial loss of revenue related to COVID 19.

The club remains financially stable but is also appreciative of the ongoing support of all of our members.

At our recent AGM, the Committee agreed to keep membership fees at the same level as last year.

It will be a different looking summer at FSLSC but we are confident in our ability to provide modified programs and in the resilience of our community making the best of it!

We are currently examining potential program modifications for areas such as Bronze Medallion training, Nippers and Gates Fun Run.

We will adjust as appropriate once the post Stage 3/4 restrictions and LSV advice becomes clearer.

Safety of our members and the community will be the paramount consideration.

We rely heavily on membership fees for sustained financial viability, and certainly this year more than ever that revenue will represent a significant portion of Club income, given the uncertainty regarding social gatherings and other avenues for revenue for the club.

Nippers/Family Members

We are hopeful that a modified Nippers program will proceed and we are certainly planning around that scenario.

FSLSC does not charge a separate Nipper fee so regardless of whether your family participate in Nippers, all family members have access to the club and its facilities.

Finally, we recognize and respect that COVID has affected members and their families in many ways, financially and otherwise.

Please feel free to contact Nicole Clarke ([email protected]) if you have extenuating circumstances.

Many thanks to Nicole Clarke, Vicki Redwood and Pam Freeman for their hard work in coordinating our membership offering.

Kind Regards,

Darren West
President – Fairhaven SLSC
