Safety & Etiquette

1. Please be considerate of other patrons using the building and run under control at all times.  The Gander Community Centre offers many shared uses and safety is what drives these guidelines.  All activities at the  Gander Community Centre will be at one's own risk.

2. Please check schedule board for daily updates on activities.

3. Please adhere  to the direction of the day.  Check schedule on Information Board.  Slower traffic should stay in the lane closest to the arena seats.  Faster traffic (joggers, runners, etc.) should be moving in the opposite direction to try and alleviate flow problems.
