PWC Clubhouse Update 23/03/2022

Dear DUC and DSBC Members

The clubhouse will be open on Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th March for the school holidays. Club operating hours on these two days will be from 9am to 3pm.

During the School Holidays there is a Kids Holiday Beach Camp planned for the 28th and 29th March. Please see end of email for details.

Cashless Club

The club committee would like to move towards being a cashless club by June 2022.

Although the club does offer credit card facilities, due to the concrete and steel cage within which the club is located and the resultant poor Wi-Fi and cell signal, there is a slow authorisation process of the credit card machines which in turn slows down the queues at the tills as members wait for the credit card payments to go through before moving on and the next person in the queue can order.

To speed up our service points we would like to encourage members to make use of the MyClubAccount internet payment platform where you can load funds into your club membership card to use at the club till points as well as to pay for upcoming club events like the Open Water Swim that is on this weekend as well as the DSBC Festival (see details below).

MyClubAccount interacts directly with the club server so that funds loaded via the platform from your internet banking are instantly available to you at the club. You can also load your membership card with funds at any of the till points when you are at the club.

Because the platform “talks” to the club server, the details you enter when registering must match those that the club has on file. If you encounter problems trying to register on the MyCLubAccount , please contact general@pwsc.co.za for assistance.

Please see MyClubAccount attachment for details.

HOLIDAY BEACH CAMP FOR KIDS

If you are wondering what to do with your kids in the school holidays, there will be a Kids Beach camp on 28 and 29 March. The camp will be run from Point Watersports Sports Club from 08h30 to 16h00 each day. The camp is targeted for children between 7 – 12 years old, and the cost of each camp is R700.00 per person.

This is an all-day program and therefore really value for money when you consider the other holiday programs out there. Supervision, activities, meals, and juice are included.

We will be adhering to COVID-19 regulations:

  • All children must arrive with a mask.
  • Temperatures will be taken on arrival.
  • The groups under each supervisor will be smaller.
  • Most of the activities are outdoors. Whilst indoors, social distancing and mask wearing will be compulsory.
  • Please do not send your children to the Kids Beach Club, if you feel the precautions are not adequate or the child/children are not well.

Hawkers and Beggars at the club

The wooden boardwalk in front of the club is a public throughfare and as such, you may be approached by beggars and hawkers. They will usually try to sell you a sticker or trinket to raise funds for shelter or transport. Some beggars will scratch in a waste bin in front of your table and put a morsel of waste food in their mouths to elicit sympathy from you and tug at your heart strings while looking at you with pleading eyes for a handout.

If you do not want to be hassled at the club by these antics and approaches, you will have to politely decline and ignore these approaches because if you do succumb and give money or food, they will only come back. There is a reason why every traffic light has someone looking for a handout!

Acceptable Handouts

If you do feel the charitable spirit to assist someone in need while at the club, please consider Hansie the car guard who assists members in the club parking. Hansie is not homeless but he does live from hand to mouth without any savings to fall back on in his advancing age. He assists members with parking, looking after their vehicles, belongings and keys as well as assisting the club in managing the parking areas.

Hansie works for tips only (except for Sunday and public holidays when he is paid by the club) and he is a skilled artisan in metal work and welding if you are looking for some assistance in this regard. To supplement his income, Hansie also sells large jars of homemade pickled onions for R70 which are available behind the club kitchen counter.

We look forward to seeing you at the club

The PWC Team
