BOM 2019: RULES AND TIPS
This year our theme is COLOUR. Singing the Blues, As Good as Gold and Green with Envy.
The completed block is to be returned by the registrant by the next meeting date to get your discount. (1st Thursday of the month between 6:00 – 8:30 pm or 1st Friday of the month between 10:00 am – 6:00pm)
If you follow the above simple rules, your other blocks will only cost $4.95 each, if you do not manage to keep within the guidelines but still want to stay in the club and receive your block, you must pay $6.95 to get your package. Upon receiving your January BOM you will receive a “coupon” with two uses. If you are late or on vacation you can “cash” in the coupon and still receive the block at the discounted price.
If for any reason you need to “drop-out” of Block of the month, we do require two months’ notice and payment. If you are away for any reason, we are always happy to keep your blocks for you, please let us know if you are gone for an extended period.
First night demos are at 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, or 7:30 Thursday Jan 10th. First morning demos are at 10:30, 11:00 or 11:30 Friday Jan 11th - choose the best time for you. Thereafter you can drop in anytime on the first Thursday of the month between 6:00 pm and Friday at 6:00 pm to pick up your block. The Demos are at 6:00, 6:30, 7:00 and 7:30 PM on Thursday and 10:30, 11:00 and 11:30 on Friday.
