Hi everyone,

Thank you to all of our existing members for renewing your memberships with Dogs NT for 2017 and welcome to all of our new members.

Memberships are now overdue, as of 1st of January 2017. It's now less than two weeks from the end of the grace period to get your memberships in! As of the 1st of February 2017 all renewals will be required to repay the joining fee as per the rules.

A gentle reminder that your form must be fully completed to be stamped as lodged. 70% of membership forms lodged to date have been filled in incorrectly or are missing information, the most common being the membership number. Proof of payment is required if you choose do do a direct deposit, failing to do any of the above listed slows down the processing of your renewal considerably.

Membership period is one calendar year and the expiry date of your membership is printed on your membership card, posted in the TDW, on the scale of fees in the TDW and this year was sent as an email reminder. We appreciate your support and look forward to working with you all for a bigger and better year in 2017.

Notice to all Dogs NT Members re: Increased Fees

DogsNT has reviewed the costs involved with the grounds over the past 12 months and more. It is very clear that the charges do not cover the costs.

Power and Water have significantly increased their charges for both water and electricity, and additionally the prospective costs of light maintenance and replacement promises to be significant also.

To ensure the grounds are of suitable quality to run training classes and conduct shows and trials, these costs are necessary. Therefore we need to ensure the charges levied are sufficient to cover the usage.
The tasks that have been identified to maintain the grounds are as follows:

– water,
– lighting,
– cleaning,
– mowing,
– ground maintenance,
– sprinklers and
– general building maintenance.

As a result of the increases we have decided to split the charges to Ground Hire and Light Hire.
Ground Hire:  Previously the Ground hire was charged as a consolidated amount that attempted to ‘lump’ all costs into one basket. This was at a nominal rate, and charges for water and maintenance were never included. The increases have been absorbed to this date to the great detriment of DogsNT’s finances. It is not possible for this process to continue. The Ground Hire charge will address some of these charges and are expected to include the costs involved with:

1. Water charges
2. General maintenance of the Grounds
3. Occasional replacement of minor items
4. Preparation of grounds for Shows and Trials
5. Cleaning of Toilets and ‘demountable’ prior to shows and trials
    a. Note: the cleaning before and after events will become the responsibility of the affiliate that hires the facilities.

The Light hire is planned to cover costs involved with;

1. Costs of running the lights on a per hour basis
2. Replacement of component parts of the lights
     a. Hire of cherry picker/high lift boom
3. Overall replacement of the lights as end of life approaches.

Council is very appreciative of the assistance currently given to them with mowing, emptying rubbish bins and the other numerous jobs that are being done.

To investigate this further, DogsNT may be able to offset some of the costs for the grounds and lights against the charges for these services. If members would like to identify some of the offsets, Council can discuss and see if they can be implemented.

Council welcome any suggestions from members on any of these issues.

Kind Regards

Caroline Camilleri
Secretary DogsNT

 

Padlock Issues at the Front Gate

It has come to our attention that our members are incorrectly locking the main RASNT gate. This is not an isolated instance, but infact has happened 6 times in a 4 month period.

The inconvenience caused to RASNT staff is not tolerable and continued issues may lead to denial of use of that gate to DogsNT members.

There is a picture on the Shean Road gate of the correct and only procedure for locking that gate.

Changes to Scale of Fees
