Being a VRC Member comes with an expectation that you will follow our standards, particularly with regard to the rules and regulations that govern the Club.
The 2017/2018 VRC Members’ & Racing Rewards Handbook provides information about the Club's facilities, Membership offerings and Members code of conduct, including the following:
Misuse of Membership Cards
Members are reminded that their Membership Card is strictly non-transferable.
Random audit checks are frequently conducted within the Members’ Enclosure on raceday.
The misuse of a Membership Card is a serious breach of Club rules. Offenders will be referred to the VRC Disciplinary Committee which could result in suspension or loss of Membership privileges.
Members are urged to respect others within the Members Enclosure by not using offensive or discriminatory language, or indulging in any kind of unseemly behaviour.
Any behaviour deemed unacceptable will be referred to the VRC Disciplinary Committee for action. Unseemly behaviour may also result in the offender being escorted from the racecourse.
Members are reminded that they are responsible for the behaviour of the guests they introduce into the Members’ Enclosure, including the Members’ Reserved Car Park Enclosures.
Liquor license rules
Members and their guests must observe the Liquor Licensing Regulations in place at Flemington Racecourse. The VRC and its caterers follow guidelines for Responsible Service of Alcohol.
By law, staff members must not serve any alcoholic beverages to guests under the age of 18, or to guests deemed to be in a state of intoxication.
In addition to any action taken by police, disciplinary action will be taken by the VRC Disciplinary Committee against Members and/or guests who are in breach of the Liquor Licensing Regulations applicable to Flemington Racecourse.
Children in the Members Enclosure
On racedays, neatly dressed children up to 11 years old may be admitted to the Members’ Enclosure free of charge and without ticketing provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
While in the Members' Enclosure, children aged 12-17 must hold either:
- Guest Card
- Junior Members Card
- Members Enclosure Daily Guest Pass.
Children will not be admitted to the ‘Members Only’ areas and must be supervised at all times.
Children on Stakes Day
A Junior Members Enclosure Daily Guest Pass will be made available for parents to purchase for children at the Raceday & Ticketing Office on Emirates Stakes Day at a concession rate.
Note: This privilege is not available during the first three days of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
A limit of four Junior Members Enclosure Daily Guest Passes per Member applies.
Children's dress regulations
Children 12 years and older are required to follow the same dress regulations as that of an adult.
