During this time Members will continue to have access to the Club premises and the Kitchen will be operating normally however the Club Bar will be closed to allow more space for food service.  BOISW will operate their Mt Gay Bar from an adjacent Marquee that will be a part of an expanded Licensed Premises.  Once drinks have been purchased they can be consumed in the Clubrooms, on the Club Deck or anywhere within the Licensed area of the Car Park.  Drinks will be $6.00.
