Access Control is administered by the ZSC Club Manager, Karen Dauelsberg, who is based part-time at the Club and can be reached by phoning 021 788 4813. (ZSC = Zandvlei Sports Club, which is an umbrella body made up by the clubs which share the premises: PCC and the Imperial Yacht Club)
When your membership online registration is finalised, the Club Manager will add your cell phone number to the security database.
To gain access to the Club premises, download the G-REMOTE mobile app from Google Play or the Apple App Store. Add Zandvlei Sports Club to your favourites within this app. Then when you want to leave or enter the club, turn on the app and then tap on the “Entry” or “Exit” tab to get in or out.
You must allow the gate to close normally behind the car entering or exiting ahead of you (no tailgating)
When the gates are opened, the security system logs the identity of the member and the time of entry. Any unusual patterns of use or unauthorised use are also recorded.
There is keypad access to Male and Female Changing Rooms and Boat Racks. The ZSC Club Manager will tell you the current pass-code.
The premises are also monitored by CCTV.
If you open a gate or door, you are responsible for ensuring that it is closed behind you.
If a gate or door is left open (whether by interfering with the self-closing mechanism or otherwise) the system will show you as the last person accessing the area and you will be called to account and held liable for any problems which may arise as a result of your actions or negligence.
You may not help provide access to anyone else as membership is personal and not transferable.
You may not provide access for non-members to habitually gain access and you must comply with the spirit of the governing Club constitutional rule regarding non-members. If someone is not able to use their own cell phone to open the gates, they are to be assumed to be either a non-member or no longer a member. If you assist a non-member to bypass security in suspicious circumstances, your membership may be terminated.
Your membership may not be traded, transferred or assigned to any other person.
All members (including all junior members) are responsible for their own access, except for Guppies and family members under the age of 12 years who then fall under the care of a parent.
Non-member parents of juniors may add a maximum of two Parental Access cell phone numbers per family to aid in the ferrying of their children. Whilst on Club premises, Parent Access holders will be accorded the status of Visiting Member and subject to all the same regulations applicable to members.
Access will be denied if membership fees are in arrears.
The Club reserves the right to suspend or terminate the membership of any member interfering or tampering with the security access control system or compromising security in any manner.
If your cell phone is not granting you access, please contact the Club Manager as soon as possible, as there may be a power failure or computer malfunction affecting the system, or an issue involving your membership.
The club cannot be held liable for the damage, loss or theft of any personal articles (including but not limited to boats, paddles, equipment, vehicles, clothing and valuables) whilst at the club premises. It is the responsibility of each member to take every precaution necessary to ensure his or her personal property is secure and it is strongly recommended that you lock your boats in your rack space for additional security.
No person may steal, borrow or in any manner tamper with or use another member’s boat or a Club Boat, or interfere in any way with impounded boats, without permission. Contravention of this rule may lead to disciplinary action with a possible sanction of either referral to SAP for prosecution, a fine being imposed or membership suspended or terminated.
Club Boats are for use during supervised training only with a recognised PCC coach or with the permission of a member of the Executive Committee. Additional guidelines for the use of Club Boats must be adhered to.
Please Note: Your cell phone number will only be added to the Security database after your proof of payment for the correct amount has been received and your membership has been fully processed.
The Registration Officer is a volunteer who generously donates his/her own time to do this and can only do so when his/her own work and family commitments allow, so please be patient if it takes a little while.
The Registration Officer then notifies you and Karen by email when all your membership is in order and asks Karen to add your cell phone number to the database.
Should any of your contact details change throughout the course of the year, please correct them by both notifying the Registration Officer and by logging on to the Paddlers’ Zone and updating your details there. You are solely liable for any actions arising from your failure to do so.
Each year every existing Member needs to renew their membership for the new season on a) the Paddlers’ Zone , or b) via the Quick Register me now! link on the automatically generated renewal reminder, acknowledging that they agree to the Terms and Conditions of membership and Code of Conduct. You are solely liable for any actions arising from your failure to do so.
Simply depositing any payment into the PCC bank account without renewal on a) the Paddlers’ Zone, or b) via the Quick Register me now! link on the automatically generated renewal reminder, does not constitute active membership or secure previously rented racks.
The Peninsula Canoe Club Committee is made up of unpaid volunteers who generously donate their time to run the administrative affairs of the club.
We all have limited time available, and are therefore unable to chase up after members who are lax with their personal administration.
The onus is on individual members to ensure that the correct procedures are followed for registration on the Paddlers’ Zone.
