We have now been opened nine days (9) after a seventy (70) day hibernation. The response from our members and their guests has been overwhelmingly positive.

Whilst we are still in stage one of re-opening we have a venue capacity of 162 at any one time, therefore we are not able to provide the full suite of members entertainment and promotions that our members have been accustomed to over the last few years.

MEMBERS UPDATE 3rd JUNE 2020
I have been contacted by Members over the past few days asking many questions regarding Club activities and Member benefits, the main questions related to:
Renewals and Membership – I am pleased to advise that the Board of Directors have extended every members membership as at the 22nd March 2020 an additional year, free of charge. If your membership was due for renewing on the 30th June 2020, it has been extended until 30th June 2021. For those members with multi-years, your membership too has been extended by one (1) year.
Reward Points – Balances will remain the same as what they were as at close of trade 22nd of March. These balances will be available for use now that the Club is re-open. Those members in Platinum and Gold tier will have until 30th September 2020 use their points balance before they expire.
Tier Levels – The tier level you had reached at the time of the club closure will remain as it is when the club re-opens. No Downgrades will be done until 31st December 2020.
Promotion Entries – All promotion entries earned toward the final draw of the “March $5000 Cash Giveaway” promotion, and the Keno “Win a BBQ” promotion shall remain in place until these promotions are re-instated.
Membership Details – All details remain in our secure system and have been re-activated on the 1st June 2020. Members will be required to update details upon their first entry back into the club after re-opening.
Gaming Card Accounts – Balances will remain the same as what they were at the end of trade on the 22nd of March 2020. All funds will be available for use now that the club has re-opened.
Vouchers & Gift Cards – Any vouchers or Gift Cards with an Expiry date of while the club was closed will remain valid. Please enquire at reception, we will provide details to members on the new periods of redemption for these vouchers that were valid after the 22nd of March 2020.
Members Birthdays – Members Birthdays in April and May will have vouchers loaded onto their cards for use until 31st July 2020.
Promotions & Entertainment – At this time whilst restrictions are still in place, we will not be conducting our normal suite of promotions, raffles, trivia and bingo. Unfortunately, whilst our venue capacity is still limited, we will not be hosting Entertainment.
Entry to the club – At this point in time we are only admitting to the club one guest with each financial member. This is due to our venue capacity. This will be lifted as restrictions are eased.
Kids Meals & Kids Room – Given the restrictions on our dining capacity, our kids value meals of $3.90 have been removed from the menu, along with the closure of the kids room. As the government eases restrictions over the coming weeks and our venue capacity increases we will bring back these much loved and valued member services.
On behalf of the Board, Management and our entire Staff, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support during this time and thank you for the amazing messages of support we have received throughout the past two months.
MEMBERS UPDATE 31 May 2020
COVID-19 Information/Re-Opening requirements and restrictions.
The club is re-opening from 1st June 2020. We are pleased to present a COVID Safe venue for our members and community. A number of changes have been made to accommodate the new trading environment that we operate in.
Our venue will have a capacity limit of 145 people to ensure social distancing, and each of our spaces within the club are clearly signed as to their capacity amount.
Initially, we will be only admitting members and one guest of a member to the club, no visitors will be admitted. This measure is due to the small venue limit that we will start with, and as restrictions are lifted and our venue capacity is increased, this measure will be reviewed.
Members and guests will need to provide a contact number and/or email address at reception. This is a condition of entry and a requirement of the NSW government for contact tracing purposes.
Don’t forget to bring your members card with you. Members must swipe their membership card in the Members Kiosk and member’s guests must sign-in to gain entry.
All members will receive Bonus Visitation Points upon swipe during June 2020. The amount will be according to your membership tier.
If you have any further questions regarding the club’s re-opening, our Reception Staff will be there for you every step of the way.
We are open 7 days, Monday to Saturday from 9.00am, & Sundays from 11.00am. Rivers Dining facilities are open 7 days a week with meals available from when the club opens. Sunday for lunch until 2.30pm and Monday to Saturday for both lunch and dinner. These times will be reviewed on a weekly basis.
Rivers Dining will be reopening with a new menu (check out our website -https://msmc.org.au/eat-drink/rivers-dining/ ). At this stage, no bookings are required for lunch-time dining but this may change with demand. We will be bound by capacity limits so there may be a wait for entry during busy periods.
Evening meals are available from 5.30 pm (Mon – Sat)
BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL
We will have an online-booking site up and running soon using “The Fork” but in the meantime, please call the club on 02 6672 1388 to make a booking. Choice of two sitting times Thursday to Saturday: 5.30 – 7.00 pm or 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm.
Social-distancing Tip: Consider dining with us earlier in the week rather than on the weekends, it will be less busy. 😀
During COVID 19 restrictions, at this stage, we cannot cater for functions of people greater than 10 and we have no rooms available for hire for meetings.
Bar and Keno facilities are open but our Courtesy Bus will not be operational for the first week we re-open.
Bingo, Trivia, on-premise Meat Raffles, Entertainment, Members Badge Draws and general promotions will not be offered during this restrictive operation environment. These will be reviewed on a periodic basis.

SAFETY AND HYGIENE
The club has installed hand sanitizers throughout the venue for your comfort, your cutlery will be individually packaged, we will be cleaning all high touch area’s throughout the club, we will also be monitoring social distancing. The club is receiving a professional “Deep Clean” by our contract cleaning company prior to reopening on Monday. The building works are nearing completion, with the new entry stairs and ramp handed over today. The new toilets will be two weeks from completion and our two new bars set to open at the end of June 2020.
Upon your return to your club if you see things that aren’t quite right in your eye, please speak to our friendly staff or our COVID Safety officer in the high vis vest and they will endeavour to address your issue. We have gone to a lot of effort over the last few weeks in preparing our staff to be re-employed, with all of the staff being trained in COVID Safety. We are very excited about the re-opening on Monday and look forward to greeting you all and providing outstanding customer service in a safe environment.
