Training - Cancellations

The OBH Club has always tried to offer instruction at the lowest possible cost to members by juggling times, sessions etc. However this does mean that unforseen cancellations can result in the Club making a loss, as we still have to pay for the instructor & the venue. Rather than increase the cost of lessons to everyone, or asking for money in advance - which many clubs do, it has been decided that members who cancel lessons with less than 24 hours notice will be asked for a contribution sufficient to ensure that the Club does not make a loss. This wil

l be at the organiser's discretion; but it does mean that we can keep the cost of lessons as low as possible for the benefit of all.
