If you are an ORC member and you drive to the club, you must obtain a parking pass from the ORC office. Parking in our lot is included in ORC memberships. Please ensure you know your license plate number when you come to the office for a pass.
Please continue to take care when entering, parking and leaving the parking lot. We have many members arriving by foot and bike and so please take care when manoeuvring your vehicle and ensure you park in a valid parking spot.
