The venue will remain anonymous until the week before the event, in order to ensure privacy It is the responsibility of parents to organise drop off and pick up of attendees at the venue. Attendees driving themselves to the venue will not be allowed entry unless prior permission is granted from parents. Those in attendance will not be permitted to leave the venue at any time during the night, except with a parent/guardian or other authorised person. Health, Safety & Security The safety and security of your sons and their invited guests is of paramount concern. There will be a large parental presence throughout the event and professional employees of a recognised security firm have been engaged to assist parents with the care and control of all those attending. Invitations Attendance at the event is by invitation only. Invitations will shortly be issued to all the senior rowers and to the guests who have been nominated and identified by them. Photo ID will need to be presented to the supervising parents and security stationed at the venue entrance. Each attendee must have his/her name checked off the official invitation list, and they will then each receive a wristband identifying them with the event. Bags and belongings will be able to be stored securely within the cloakroom with tags to identify the owner.

Food & Beverages The organising committee has arranged food to be served to attendees throughout the night. There will also be water and soft drinks supplied at the event. Alcohol Alcohol will not be supplied

It is important that parents understand that any Alcohol bought into the event is strictly up to the individual. The event has nothing to do with the involvement of Alcohol and is NOT responsible for any serving or distribution of alcohol.
As the function is being held on private premises, invitees are permitted to bring their OWN alcohol to the event. It is imperative that all drinks brought are in CANS ONLY. Any glass bottles will be confiscated. No straight spirits allowed and the offending guest may be refused entry. The organising parents expressly reserve the right to ask security personnel to conduct reasonable enquiry and searches in relation to alcohol. With this information in mind you may each consider your son/daughters involvement in the event, and also help them to make informed choices. Fitness to Enter & Removal of Attendees Important note: any rower or guest may be refused entry to the party if in the opinion of the supervising parents see they are incapable of self carriage or unable to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner due to the suspected ingestion of drugs and/or alcohol. This right of refusal has been exercised in past years. In the event that the conduct of a rower or guest is deemed

unacceptable, whether due to their condition, behaviour, or sudden ill health, a supervising parent will telephone the contact number provided for that person and make arrangements with their parent/guardian for their safe retrieval by the parent/guardian. Taxis will not be an option in these situations, and it is important that all parents take seriously the responsibility of nominating themselves or another appropriate adult safe driver to assist organisers to convey their son or guest home safely if the need arises. Co-operation In the interests of promoting a safe and harmonious environment for the event it is recommended that you make your children aware of the contents of this bulletin. Please encourage them to help the organising parents to make a success of the event by looking after their guests and acting responsibly. Responsibility All reasonable steps will be taken by the organising parents to ensure that all the participants in this event enjoy themselves within a safe and secure venue. Without the goodwill and generosity of the venue hosts, and the organising parents, this event would not be possible. Your support and your commitment to encouraging your children to act responsibly is an essential part of this endeavor. Experience suggests that excessive consumption of alcohol prior to the commencement of the function causes most problems for organisers of such functions. It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to ensure that attendees arrive to the event in an appropriate state. If the professional security personnel believe that they are already intoxicated by alcohol or drugs entry will be refused. Thank you for taking the time to read this bulletin.

Conclusion Please do use this bulletin as the basis of providing an open and adequate explanation of arrangements to the parents of the guests. In order to help avoid unwanted attention (gatecrashers) or notoriety about the event, please dont publicise these arrangements more widely than a need to know basis. Posting the event on Facebook or other social media is expressly forbidden. Attendees that are suspected of supplying gatecrashers with information about the night may be removed from the event with no refund given. By taking a firm and sensible approach to the facilitation of this event, the organizing parents hope that all participants will be able to relax and enjoy themselves, free from intrusion by a minority of party goers who seem to thrive on upsetting those around them, and spoiling the fun for others.
