TORQUAY BOARDRIDERS CLUB – New Members Policy (updated 12 Dec 2018)
- Past Senior Members are able to re-join at any time
- Over 35’s (i.e Masters, Grand Masters & Legends) are restricted to join – they need to apply to the Executive Committee. They will be required to join as a ‘Social’ member in the first instance and then can re-apply the following year for competition rights. The decision will then be made by the Membership Sub-Committee (the Executive Committee plus 3 elected Committee members) the following year when Memberships are up for renewal. The social member will need to show that they were actively volunteering and being a part of the club for the Membership Sub-Committee to make the decision.
- For ALL Open and Junior divisions – 3228 residents (as their primary residence) are automatically accepted as members. If the surfer falls outside the 3228-postcode area, they can apply for membership by completing a 2019 New Member Application Endorsement Form with the endorsement of 2 current financial TBC members and then taken to the Membership Sub-Committee (the Executive Committee plus 3 elected Committee members) to be discussed and an outcome to be decided.
