Membership Subscriptions and Loyalty Cards
Bar Pricing Policy
Club Members will receive a discount on drinks from the time the Membership Card is issued. The discount and pricing will be listed and the Members Discount Tariff shown. The initial discount has been set at 20p, although this will continue to be reviewed on a regular basis.
Whilst BRFC is seen as being very competitive in the local market for its bar prices, the discounts anticipated will reinforce this position.
A price list will be displayed in the bar, and it is anticipated that it will show that, in general Members will be buying the itemised drinks at some 10% less than non-members. (Note – this will be subject to continual review and will also be dependent on the annual price challenges that rises in supplier costs, and the Budget, will bring).
Key Operational Points
No payment of subs, no Loyalty Card, no Members’ discount.
Cards must be swiped for every purchase to get the discount. If you forget your card you will pay non-member prices.
Non-members will be encouraged to join.
Swipe cards will be issued within a maximum of 1 week from payment.
Cards are specific to Members. Each card will carry the Member’s number, and this will be recognised by the till system.
Lost cards will be cancelled and will cost £5 to replace.
The use of a card other than your own will be considered an abuse of the system and will result in it being withdrawn. A payment of £20 will be required to reissue it.
Members’ spouses/partners will need to become Members to benefit from the scheme, apart from those who currently pay a Family Membership (two cards for the family, to be used by any family member covered by that subscription).
If you are on a ‘subs paid, card awaited’ list, the bar staff are authorised to override the non-members prices – this override will NOT be used for cards that are forgotten.
There will be a degree of latitude for the first month only. The Club Steward / Committee have sole discretion in determining what latitude is given.
Life Members, 10 year Members, and, of course, Vice Presidents, will automatically be members of the Loyalty Scheme and will be given a card to use. They will be subject to the same controls outlined above for Members.
Mini and Junior parents will need to join as Members if they wish to enjoy Member’s prices – a Family Membership option is available.
Function prices and non-member prices will be one and the same (Standard prices). Members will enjoy discounts at all times if card is shown.
If you produce your card when you shop at Owen Sports, you will receive a 10% discount on your purchase
An area of difficulty with this scheme is where Members invite genuine guests into the Club. If a Member genuinely buys all of the drinks then the Member’s prices will apply. If the guest buys a round then non-member prices will prevail. Similarly, non-member prices will apply if a Member is given money by another Member who cannot produce a swipe card to buy drinks. These situations will be monitored and, if abuse is suspected, action may be taken. Of course, it is in the interests of regular guests to become Members.
The Committee recognises that this is a difficult area and is open to abuse. The Committee hopes that Members will understand and appreciate that the scheme is being introduced for their exclusive benefit and that they should observe and support the Scheme guidelines.
The decision of the Club Steward / Committee is final and binding where any ruling on eligibility for discount is required.
The Committee also recognises that this is a significant change and we hope that Members will see and support the proposed benefits. Comments are welcome and the scheme will be fine-tuned as a result of materially beneficial comments, and any lessons learned. The scheme will also be the subject of a more formal 6-monthly review.
Please pay your Membership subscription fees at the earliest opportunity so that, where possible, your Loyalty Card can be issued well in advance of the agreed start date.
Thank you for you continued loyalty and support
