Closure of P&DARCS due to COVID-19
To All Club Members,
The National Cabinet has issued Stage 2 level restrictions, effective as from 25th March. Under the heading 'Venue Must Close', the sub section which affects us is 'Social Sporting Activities'.--there are no exceptions listed. This evening the VMAA issued a directive that all clubs must close. The Club committee now have no option but to follow the Government & VMAA directives and to CLOSE Burley Field to all aeromodelling and social activities until further notice.
The only persons to be at the Field will those engaged in the management and maintenance of the property.
The Club Committee has a corporate obligation to our members for safe and efficient operation of the Club facilities. We must look after the wellbeing of our members, especially considering that a very high percentage of them are in the high risk age group. We trust you will all realise that this major decision is in your best interests and that you will stay at home—in the workshop—and produce that 'other model'--the one that is always on the future list.
Please note: Since 31 March Victoria in now under stage 3 restrictions which currently will remain in place until 12 May. Please see the Victorian Government website for more details.
