|| In Case of an Emergency:
• The Diggers RSL Club will announce over the intercom for all persons to go to the nearest exit.
• The exit points for our Club’s meeting room are:
1. One set of Emergency Exit Doors is to the front left hand side of the room.
2. Another set of Emergency Exit Doors is just outside the room in the hallway leading to the meeting room.
• On exiting the building all persons are to proceed directly to our assembly point near the Bowling Green outside the doors to the front of the room on the left, where members of the Probus Management Committee will be.
• Most important that you do not leave the assembly point unless instructed to do so from either the President or Snr Vice President of our Club
• At the Assembly point a Roll Call will be conducted by the Membership Officer and this year this person is Vicki Halverson
• After all members have been accounted for and it is safe to do so, either our Probus President or Snr Vice President will announce that members may leave.
Most Important for this Emergency Procedure to work is: that all of us attending the meeting must register with Vicki Halverson and advise Vicki if they will be leaving the meeting early. This is in case the building has to be evacuated and we need to account for each Club Member who attended the meeting.

|Club Booking and Cancellation Policy||In
brief, refunds of fees paid for various functions and outings cannot be
made for any components not recoverable from the venue operator or the
transportation company. See the full policy below.
No show without notice, no refund!!
The policy adopted by the club at the monthly meeting in
October 2008 is as follows:-
1. Notice of Activity or Expression of Interest
1.1. The Organisers will post a Notice of Activity or an Expression of Interest form about a proposed activity at the Club monthly meeting three months in advance, unless it is an activity requiring a longer-term booking.
1.2. Members will be able to put their names on this form without payment being required at that time. The response of members on the form will give an indication to the Organisers if there is sufficient interest to proceed with the activity.
(Elements of items 2 and 3 which apply to a given event will be noted on the booking sheet for that event.)
2. Bookings and payment
2.1. For all bookings, full payment must be made in advance of the event.
2.2. In a case of a substantial amount being involved, payment of an initial deposit on a specified date will be required. Usually, the date for the final payment will be published when the notice is posted. These dates will depend on the terms and conditions of the supplier.
2.3. For all other bookings, full payment must be made by the date specified by the organisers for the activity.
3.1. If a Member cancels their booking before the final payment date, every effort will be made to obtain a refund from the supplier, but this may not always be possible.
3.2. After the final booking date, refunds are not guaranteed. Usually, suppliers demand full payment if cancellations are made after the final payment date.
This can be within 28 days of the activity or at a time specified by the supplier as the final payment date. In these cases, Club organisers will endeavour to persuade the supplier to waive the charges, but this is not guaranteed and the Member may still be liable to make the full payment.
4. Order of preference
If the number of bookings is limited for a particular activity, Members on the list who do not pay by the due date will be replaced by those on the waiting list who can pay by that date.
Members will be given priority for all events, but non-members can attend activities as guests of financial members subject to the approval of the Program Managers/COAST Convenors/Management Committee, but each Member may only have a guest at a maximum of two functions each year.
