We published an article a few weeks ago asking people to identify and claim their personal dollies, otherwise those dollies would be deemed donated to the club. We did not receive many responses!
We have attached again the private dolly register HERE and ask that people review this and confirm to the Dolly Auditor, Mark Gray, by email here if any dollies in the register are theirs. Note there are four private stackable dollies in one image labelled 18A-18D – please review these too.
We have also not received communication from the owner of the heavy dolly made from steel pipe shown at item 15. This dolly needs to be removed from the club as it is incompatible with the racks. We have another member who has volunteered to remove it and, if we do not hear from its owner, it will be deemed abandoned and will be removed by that other member.
There are several people whose dollies have been reported missing. This is an unfortunate reality of storing private dollies at the club. There is a very high probability, based on experience, that any private dolly stored in the club will eventually go missing. We are sorry that this has happened to those people. The club’s dolly policy is as follows:
Our policy is to encourage members not to store personal dollies in the club. If you elect to store a personal dolly in the clubhouse, you will be deemed to have donated that dolly to the club, unless you submit photographs with unique identifiers that are accepted by the Dolly Auditor AND your name and those photographs are recorded in the Private Dolly Register. The club bears no liability for failure to record or retain details of your dolly in the Dolly Register, even where such details were provided to and accepted by the Dolly Auditor. If you store your dolly at the club, you do so at your own risk, and the club bears no liability for loss of your dolly, even as a result of negligence or of a wilful decision by the club to scrap it, which the club reserves the right to do at any time without notification to you. Members should be aware that numerous private dollies have been lost and/or scrapped over the years, and you have no right of claim, including no right to an alternate dolly, should that occur to yours. You are not entitled at any time, including upon selling your boat and/or ceasing to be a member of the club, to remove a dolly from the clubhouse or surrounds except with the specific approval of a Flag Officer or the Dolly Auditor and then only when the dolly you propose to take is recorded as yours in the Dolly Register. By storing your personal dolly in the clubhouse, you agree to these terms.
