Ladies and Gentlemen of the BUSC, here at the right is a sanitized version of the Nov ’18 Bulletin which you may share with your guest. Also at right below is a link to rules for the Conduct of the Mess which you must share with your guest before he/she attends the event with you.
The purpose is for you to invite a Guest and send them this document to inform them of the details of the Club and our CW Night event, and to encourage good sponsorship of each should they attend.
Note: This is an invitation for you the Member to use to invite any Guests to our Commonwealth Night ’18. Should they accept, you become their Sponsor/Host for this event. You now handle their RSVP and arrange for payment (to you, at the check-in desk or you pay for your Guests). You need to ensure they understand the dress requirements and brief them on our Mess Night Conduct traditions – like not reserving seats before the reception line, not leaving the Mess before the comfort break, passing the Port, etc. On Mess night carpool with them or meet them at the ATCC, help them sign in and circulate them around to meet as many of the Members and other Guests as possible. Ideally you (or your stand-in) would be with them circulating during the entire Anteroom cocktail period – do not leave them alone. Some of our other Guests will be British or former Commonwealth subjects who may want to eventually join our Club, and our camaraderie is on display. You are the BUSC Ambassador!! Outreach is the objective.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
