The OYC is easy to get to and easy to miss.
Vehicle entry is by proximity card, personal entry by coded lock.

Trailers:
If you are towing a trailer you will need to have the barrier turned off
as the magnetic sensor does not always register a trailers presence.

Entering the club

Vehicle entry to the club requires a proximity card.

Put the card close to the reader at by the entrance and the gate should
rise.
You don’t need the card to exit so if the card is not yours, return
it while you remember.

Leaving the Club

You don’t need a proximity card to leave the car park, the barrier will
detect the vehicle and rise automatically. However if you are towing a
trailer you will need to have the barrier turned off as the magnetic
sensor does not alway register a trailers presence.
