Welcome to Avondale RSA



Hi Members,

The Avondale RSA has reopened after Lockdown in December 2021.
We are operating under the Traffic Light Protection Framework  which will go to RED  from midnight 23/01/22.

  • All members and their guests must have proof of double vaccination to be able to enter the Clubrooms – this is the Law and there are NO EXCEPTIONS  (no vaccination passport no entry)
  • Children under 12 are exempted from showing a vaccine passport
  • Scan & Sanitise
  • If you feel unwell or have a cough – please stay home.

We appreciate that this recent lockdown has presented many challenges to us all. This club is focused on offering a welcoming, safe environment for everyone.

All staff are double vaccinated.

It is important that all of our members are fully vaccinated and obtain a vaccine passport.
The vaccine passport is available now for download from www.mycovidrecord.health.nz
It is a standard pdf file that has a QR code that is scanned to retrieve a vaccine status. You can print this out if you prefer a manual copy, and/or it can be stored on your phone for convenient access.
If you have already downloaded your vaccine passport, you can email it to office@avondalersa.org.nz and I will print it and have it on file so when you turn up at the club we just check your name and not worry about showing your vaccine passport.
Please do not be offended when you enter the Club and a staff member asks to sight your Vaccine passport. 
To protect us and yourself, it is mandatory that you have proof you are fully vaccinated. 
The staff have the right to refuse entry for any member who does not adhere to the regulations. Social distancing still applies.
 There will be a Scan and Sanitise Entrance Stand at each entrance.
The Restaurant is currently open for dinner from Thursday through to Sundays. Further information on their hours (during red) will be provided shortly.
Keep well, stay safe and be kind.
Bernie Thomsen
Club Manager
