SPBC PRE-PAYMENT SCHEME


This scheme is available to Club members only. It enables you to pay your table money in advance so that a) you are not looking for change on the day and b) there will be less bulky coinage to be taken to the bank.

The scheme is entirely optional. It has come about because a number of members asked for it and now many members are taking advantage of it. Tokens of the value of a standard member table fee (currently $7) can be purchased in batches of 10 ($70 a batch).

To take part, you have two options:

- Order tokens in batches of 10 by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). The Club’s bank details are BSB 066124, Account No. 00920172. Your reference will be your name and “tokens”.
- Order tokens from a session Director (minimum of one batch of 10). Use notes or a cheque only.

Whichever method you choose, the tokens will take two or three days to reach you. After that time ask the Director, when you arrive at the club, to check if your order is in the safe.

When you sit down to play, simply put a token on the table and put a “T” alongside your name on the table slip. If you are playing at a supervised session, you can still use your token but add a dollar and put “T + 1” on the table slip.

Occasionally you may be playing in a competition at the Club where an entry fee is involved. You can still use your token but pay the balance in cash.

Please note that tokens may only be used for playing fees. They may not be used for book purchases or drinks from the bar.
