SAY GOODBYE TO MONTHLY BAR TABS! Effective October 1, 2015

Effective October 1, 2015, the Gerry 5 VFA will no longer provide the monthly bar tab option to members.  This was introduced many years ago when we were a smaller Club as a courtesy. At that time the management and collection of monthly tabs was a fairly simple process.  Today with over 1,100 members the task has become onerous.  We are currently holding approximately $4,000 in unpaid bar tabs. Efforts to collect these many times go ignored.  Attempts to bill people for overdue tabs have not been as successful as hoped. We also now offer alternative methods of payment - credit cards and Gerry gift cards (and of course cash or personal check). Therefore, we will no longer allow any member to run a monthly bar tab starting October 1, 2015.

WE ARE SERIOUS! Beginning October 1, all patrons must pay at the time of service. Day tabs will still be available but MUST be collected by the bartender when the member departs. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding!

The JULY newsletter has been posted. Please go to the Newsletter tab to view or print.
