MEMBERS AND GUESTS

You will all be aware that we have moved into Alert level 2 and unfortunately, this has consequences for us. While we are at this level, patrons must remain seated and alcohol will be served at your table. We will be unable to do our meat raffles on Thursday and we will also suspend the Club Draw until we are back at level one. The courtesy van will not be operating.
On the positive side, we’ve had a bit of practice now of doing this. Whilst we’re not completely geared up to operate this way, we now have more mobile eftpos machines and we are trying to get as many staff here as practical. For our roast night tonight, we have pork and we don’t ever normally get more than 100 people here on roast night anyway so if you feel safe heading out, we’d love to see you.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is the only night of the week where we would ordinarily expect to exceed 100 people so we’ll have to cap it at that – hopefully we won’t have everyone give up on us and we can get close to that number.
Stay safe everybody and for those of you that are able to get here when you can, we certainly appreciate your support.

Message from the Weighmasters Team regarding being contacted

Congratulations to all the people heading out from Whitianga in the last couple of weeks that have caught southern bluefin tuna. We expect that we will see more of this as weather conditions permit in the coming weeks.

If you require the services of one of our weighmasters, please call 021 02562849 (Store this number in your phone). Your call will be diverted to the weighmaster on duty.

Please do not text to this number as texts do not divert and there is no guarantee anyone will physically have the phone on them.

Thanks and good luck!

MBGGC Weighmaster team
