Vaccine Passports - What we Know
25 November 2021
First the disclaimer: We are making a lot of assumptions here and we have tried our best to point these out, but please understand that this will depend entirely on the final rules that the Government sets in place. We are also assuming your club will be deemed vaccinated under the traffic light system.
However, it seems that the approach thus far is to let everyone decide on their own systems, with the onus on ensuring everyone in the club is vaccinated. And if they aren’t and you get caught, expect big fines, and most likely a serious backlash from all the vaccinated members.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Laithwaites…
23 November 2021
Just like you, we love enjoying a glass of wine at our local Club. Now you can enjoy great value, top quality wines out-and-about and at home too, all thanks to Laithwaites.
As a special offer coming into Christmas, Laithwaites are offering Clubs New Zealand members a dozen premium wines & 2 stemless glasses for just $10.99 a bottle. It’s a fantastic opportunity to stock the wine rack right in time for the silly season.

Annual Membership Updates will be hitting inboxes next month
18 November 2021
Early next month all clubs will receive an email with a link for you to complete your annual membership update. This year we have made some big changes to the annual update form to simplify and speed up the process.
As with previous update forms, this one will be online and the link to access the form will be emailed to each club early in December. We will be asking clubs to complete the membership declaration and reciprocal rights sections only, so the form has reduced from many, many fields down to six.
Proposed changes to gambling operational policy - Have your say!
16 November 2021
We are making changes to our operational policy regarding gaming machine profits (GMP) data and are inviting you to have your say.
The proposed change will allow select permitted users that need detailed data to carry out their work access to GMP data at an individual venue level. This is different to our current approach, where we publish GMP data at the territorial district level on our website every quarter.
