Please do your best to complete these small tasks to ensure the smooth operation of the lodge.

Mount Hotham Lodge

Mount Hotham lodge operates on a communal system for to share the major cleaning and food preparation tasks. This is necessary to ensure smooth operation of the lodge during peak periods but may be relaxed at other times at the discretion of the Party Leader. Because the evening meal is shared by all, the club provides all food.

The Party Leader will initially allocate all lodge residents to a group and your co-operation in completing the allocated tasks is requested. Each group is allocated only one task per day. If you wish to swap tasks with somebody else who is in agreement, by all means do so. However the responsibility of the Party Leader does not extend to arranging this for you.
