Please be advised that the FCC Minimum Spend, which was rolled over from September, will now appear on members’ December statements that will be sent in early January.

FCC Minimum Spend Period Extended

FCC Minimum Spend Period Extended
      
While the FCC has remained open during the restrictions imposed in Hong Kong as a result of the coronavirus, the Board of Governors is aware that it has been more difficult than usual for some members to enjoy the club’s facilities. The board has therefore decided that the minimum spend due on members’ September accounts will be rolled over for another three months. This means that no minimum spend charge will appear on members’ September bills and the minimum spend will be HK$ 1,800 for the six-month period from 1 July, to appear on December bills.
               
Once again, the club will offer the opportunity to purchase vouchers for any minimum spend not used by 31 December. We would also like to remind members who purchased vouchers to cover the minimum spend for the first six months of this year that those vouchers expire 30 November.
Thank you for your continued support of the FCC.
