Greater Niagara Boat Club


July 23, 2020

As you have likely heard, the province has allowed our Region to move into the next stage of recovery – Stage 3, which becomes effective on Friday, July 24th, 2020. This includes the limited re-opening of our Clubhouse.

Here is what you need to know about how we are going to move cautiously into this next stage.


  • Entry to the Clubhouse will continue to be via the main door.
  • Exits will be at the patio door or the west door (near the washroom door). If the wheelchair accessible ramp is being used, someone from inside the Club can open that door to allow entry.
  • Please continue to maintain physical distancing rules. Hand sanitizer and spray sanitizer for the chairs and tables will be available throughout the club.
  • The Bartenders and Kitchen Staff will do their best to keep up with sanitizing chairs and tables, but if they are busy, we ask that you help out and use the supplies that are there.
  • The ATM machine will again be operational. If you use it, please take a moment after to sanitize the keyboard and anywhere else you may have touched.


  • There will be limited seating available at the Bar.Currently, there are three groups of two stools each, with a 6-foot distance between the groups.
  • A few additional bar stools will be available along the wall so that another person belonging to your “social bubble” can join you, while maintaining a comfortable distance between the next grouping.
  • Once you are leaving, please turn your bar stool so that the seat faces the wall. This will indicate that the stool needs to be sanitized (If you are so inclined, you could sanitize the stool so that someone can sit down right away).
  • All drink orders will continue to be placed at the far end of the bar, unless you are one of the customers seated at the Bar. Once you get your drink(s), please proceed outside to the patio or to an available table.


  • Food orders can be placed at the kitchen door, whether eating inside or on the patio. If you are on the patio you may also call your order in as we have been doing the past month.
  • Your food will be delivered to your table, along with cutlery and condiments. For the time being, we will continue to use disposable plates and cutlery.
  • Tables are set in groups of four, but there is a maximum of six people allowed at the tables. Additional chairs are available along the wall. Moving tables together is prohibited at this time.
  • Once you are finished, please dispose of your garbage and return any glasses to the Bar.
  • When you leave your table, please sanitize the tables and chairs. (We know our staff will be busy and serving customers is their main priority!).


  • The Playground will be re-opened on Friday. Parents and Grandparents et al are reminded that you are responsible for the supervision and care of your children. The Club is not responsible for cleaning and sanitizing of this equipment – please judge yourselves accordingly.


  • The Shower Trailer and Pavilion will remain closed for this weekend until after next week’s Board Meeting for the Board to discuss cleaning and any other details that may be required.

Please remember that we are all in this together. We must continue to practice physical distancing, wash our hands often, sanitize shared supplies and, above all – Respect Your Fellow Members and Guests!

Your Board will continue to monitor the situation and modify and change things as required. Your support and cooperation are both anticipated and appreciated!
