We have experienced gradual attrition of our club dollies over the past couple of years. Our sad conclusion is that members are taking them — presumably when they sell their boats and/or leave the club.
Our dolly policy is to discourage members from storing their dollies in the club. Members who store their dollies at the club are deemed to accept that the club takes no responsibility for them (which is also the case for any other equipment, including boats, stored at the club). If a member’s dolly goes missing, there is no entitlement to take a club dolly as a replacement!
We have ordered 10 new club dollies to replenish our supply. This is expensive, and its impact on club reserves is effectively a cost to all members.
Going forward, all club dollies will be stamped with a number and will be checked regularly. If one is found to be missing, we will review CCTV footage to determine the cause.
Please respect the club’s property and your fellow members by not taking club dollies.
