One of the most important rules the city makes us enforce is controlling access to our area by means of the gate with a pad lock. The general gate protocol is as follows:
1) The first member entering the area will open (the combo is on the back of your membership badge) the lock and push the gate open and then spin the numbers on the lock and latch it closed so it can’t be removed easily by a passerby.
2) If you are the last member leaving the field first check and inform any people with cars that they need to leave because the gate will be locked shortly. Once the area is clear, exit and close the gate behind you and then lock and secure gate closed with the chain and lock—make sure it is locked! Spin the numbers!
