Dear Members,

  1. The Rain Gods have been more than happy with Mumbai, and we have experienced a magnificent spell of rain throughout the month gone by. Infact, ever since Jun this year, it has been raining generously and we should have no reason to worry about shortage of water anymore. The monsoon is at its peak and has brought cheer in Mumbai’s parched life. The lakes are filling up fast and promising us adequate water supply for the next year. Let’s hope the rain Gods continue to be benevolent on Mumbai……

  2. Welcome Chit. In order to avail any club facility, such as Cards / Sports / Swimming / Tambola / Restaurants, at the Annexe or the Main Club, it is compulsory for members to obtain a Welcome Chit from the Reception. This helps in preventing misuse of facilities by unauthorized personnel.

  3. Let Life be a Celebration. The pristine location of our Club uplifts each one’s spirit. To help you make precious memories, number of A/C venues are available for booking by the members to host parties for guests. Additionally, members may host parties in Lawns & Swimming pool area once the monsoon. recedes. Maximum guests which can be hosted at each A/C venue are as follows:-

    (a) Top Deck - 125
    (b) Coffee Shop - 50
    (c) High Tide Upper Bar - 25
    (d) Tambola Hall - 100
    (e) High Dive - 30
    (f) Tee Cix Bar - 30

  4. Monsoon Ball. The event on 23 Jul 22 was a big hit with the party people of the Club. Heavy rains, foot tapping music, romantic weather and sumptuous food added to the festivities.

  5. Dance Workshop. Renowned choreographer Mrs Lillian Mendes conducted a one-day free dance workshop on 17 Jul for the members. Salsa / Jive / Cha-Cha-Cha/ Bollywood moves were taught to all participants. The Club encourages members to conduct such events on a regular basis and requests for the same may be forwarded to the Management.

  6. Golf Course. We are proud of our Golf staff whose dedication and efforts ensured that the Golf aficionados could continue Teeing off despite the Red and Orange rain alerts. The golfing fraternity also needs to be saluted for supporting the Club in its endeavour to keep the course open.

  7. Promenade. The US Club Promenade is being upgraded for a ‘Better Tomorrow’ and work is likely be completed in the near future. Members are requested not to run / walk / sit on the Parapet wall / steps for their own safety. Security guards have been instructed to advise / warn guests and report infringements, if any.

  8. Areas of Cooperation.

    (a) Dress Regulations. US Club is a prestigious Tri Service Club with a rich history. This necessitates that all members adhere to the dress regulations irrespective of their membership category, as laid down in the Club Byelaw 16, a copy of which has been displayed prominently at the Annexe and Main Club for reference. The staff has been instructed to show a ‘REGRET’ card to members not conforming to the dress code. Members are requested to cooperate and contact Reception for any further clarification. As a goodwill gesture, T-shirts with collars, black formal shoes (of various sizes) and socks are available at nominal rates at the Reception to enable members to enjoy their evenings.

    (b) Parking. Wrong parking adversely affects the access of vehicles, causing inconvenience to the other members. Members are requested to park their vehicles within the marked areas only. Likewise chauffeur driven cars are to be parked in designated areas only.

    (c) Feeding of Dog/ Cats. Feeding of dogs / cats is strictly prohibited in the lawns / Lagoon Verandah/ T-Cix Area and the entire Club premises. Members violating the rule shall be penalized. Pet lovers may feed them in the designated areas only.

    (d) It has come to light that many members get their Ayyas/ attendants to the Club and sign them in as Guests. This is not only against the rules but lowers the decorum / standards of the Club. This needs to stop forthwith as the Management will take strict action on such offenders.

    (e) Out-Side Food / Refreshment. Consumption of outside food in the Club premises is strictly prohibited. This is important to not only ensure the growth of the Club but also to identify problem areas / assign responsibilities in case of an untoward incident with respect to food.

    (f) Speeding of Vehicles. Even though undergrowth on the pavement along the Golf Course road in the Club Annexe is being cleared, the road is narrow. Therefore, in the interest of safety of the pedestrians who also use the same road, the speed limit inside the Club is 20 Kmph. Members are requested to abide by the speed limit and drive with care especially when Golfers are playing. Also, during night time the head lights should be dipped. For chauffer driven vehicles, members are requested to instruct the same to their drivers.
