We are often asked why members can’t bring guests to the club. There are a few reasons, but let’s start with the guest policy.
Guest Passes are purchased annually by All Access Members for $300.00, and gives you the ability to bring a guest to APEX events. The orientation requirement remains (24 hours prior to a play party), and some additional rules apply to guests:
They must sign a waiver/release
They must bring photo ID EACH TIME they attend
They must come with and leave with the member
The member is responsible for their behavior.
When you put it like that it does sound pretty difficult. However, we talked to a lot of membership and thought about this REALLY hard before deciding. Here is the cliff notes version about some of our reasons:
1. APEX is a private membership club. It defies the spirit of who and what we are if strangers are wandering in and out of the club without a significant barrier to entry.
2. Annual All Access Members have a vested interest in keeping the space safe, following our rules, and preserving our culture. An Annual Member putting their membership on the line for a guest is a significant risk so they are going to be sure about who they are bringing.
3. With the $20.00 New Member Trial, people who want to “try out” the club can do so while still preserving who and what we are, and making sure they understand the rules and culture BEFORE they begin to attend without putting anyone else at risk for their behavior.
We hope that helps you understand why we do what we do, and we hope that you now see some wisdom in that choice. We value the club and every member in it, and we work hard at keeping everyone safe!
