In response to member feedback, the redeveloped clubhouse will include a number of new food and beverage services beyond the current restaurant operating in the Ray Marsh Room. Over time, this will include improved bar, kiosk and catering offerings.
With this in mind, and given Captain Moonlite’s current contract for restaurant services in the Ray Marsh room has expired, all food and beverage services in the new clubhouse will be tendered.
The ASLSC Board has encouraged Captain Moonlite to participate in this process and look forward to receiving their proposal given their contribution to the club since 2016.
The tender process will start in the week commencing January
