George, I am glad you brought this up. My guests have also had similar experiences. In addition to the good recommendations you provide, I would encourage every member to refresh themselves on RCYC Policy regarding guests:
3. CONDUCT OF MEMBERS AND GUESTS; MISCELLANEOUS
3.1. Members and Guests
3.1.3. Guests: Guests are any invited non-members who are at RCYC, whether it be for racing, exercising a reciprocal, attending an event or joining a member. Guests are to be welcomed at RCYC and treated with courtesy and respect.
Please take particular note of the second sentence in 3.1.3.
“Guests are to be welcomed at RCYC and treated with courtesy and respect.”
I know that our response to COVID has resulted in fewer opportunities to practice positive social behavior. Let’s do our part to assume good intent. Ask the right questions in a welcoming and courteous manner, and get to know our fellow club members.
I look forward to seeing you all and having an opportunity to practice some of George’s recommended introductions.
