Gala Entry Payments
I have recently reviewed how the club will administer payment of gala's going forward.
- All entries need to be submitted to Lynda Garland (Gala Secretary) as normal.
- Once entries have been accepted by the organising club, these will be displayed on our club website.
- Payment must then be made for your entries. Please can you make sure that payment is made before the gala has taken place but not before entries have been accepted.
- Once entries have been accepted no refunds can be made.
I hope this is self explanatory however please do not hesitate to contact me should you wish.
Janet Peck (Treasurer)
