LETTER TO MEMBERS FOLLOWING BRIEFING BY THCC BOARD RE COVID 19

Last night, (May 20 2020) all Sub-Club Presidents were invited to attend a briefing by the THCC  board in relation to the COVID 19 crisis, also to inform us as to how the club is tracking financially along with a “road map out of the crisis”.

It was reported by President, Dave Sheppard that the THCC was in a strong financial position prior to the COVID 19 closure. As a result of the closure, the club will be between $130K-$150K short of funds.

With this in mind, All Members will be asked to make a donation of $50 (if financially possible), additional to the $15 Social Membership fee, when Membership Renewals are sent out in the next month.

If all 1900 members of THCC donate $50 the above shortfall is significantly reduced, and removes a great deal of financial pressure from the Club. We would encourage all members to donate at least this amount and any greater amount will be sincerely appreciated.

It was acknowledged by the Board the significant contributions that the golfers, and now the bowlers, are making to maintain the Sporting Facilities. Your financial support has not gone unnoticed.

It is anticipated that the THCC will resume some restrictive trade in June with patron numbers hoping to increase substantially by then. At present the restaurant is only open for take-away. The  bottle shop will continue to trade.

Trigger points for the reopening of the main club facilities and the dining room are subject to advice from Clubs NSW.
