McClymont tickets sell fast

AFTER finding out that she had to be a member of the Grafton District Services Club to attend the upcoming McClymonts concert, Steph Jackson is more than a little disappointed.

“I was really looking forward to the concert. I lined up like everyone else to get my ticket and now I won’t use it because I don’t attend the club so don’t see the sense in becoming a member,” she said. “I have tried to support a local venue and local talent. It becomes a little too costly to firstly buy a ticket and then membership on top of that.”

GDSC general manager Arthur Lysaught said all staff were instructed to inform ticket purchasers of the conditions of entry which were that to attend the concert you had to either be a member or a guest.

“If anyone is dissatisfied with their purchase or were not made aware of the conditions, they will be offered a full refund,” he said.

“We had loads of people take application forms home when they purchased tickets because the girls are such a big act.”

To be a guest, a patron must live outside 15 kilometres of the club.

If you would like to become a member of the Grafton District Services Club, drop in to pick up a nomination form.

Costs are $11 for a pensioner or $16.50.

There is also an initial $5.50 joining fee.
