Anton is closed for the remainder of the snow season and will not re-open for any visitation until further notice.
As most would be aware, the advent of Level 3 restrictions in Melbourne Metro and Mitchell Shire, triggered a cascade of closures Including the lifts and many other resort services. The decision was then made to close the lodge from 12 July at least until the end of that phase, which was scheduled to run to August 19.
Last week’s tightening of restrictions for all Victorians with Melbourne, now at Level 4, and the rest of Victoria in Level 3, extinguished any hope for some kind of resumption after 19 August.
In the 48 years of Anton’s operation, the lodge has never been closed during the winter season. The memory of this historic and unwelcome closure will be deeply felt by the club. We tried!
Fortunately, the strong support of our members is ensuring that we will get through this unusual event and be in good shape for the 2021 season.

A long standing reservation for the meeting is at the Royal Brighton Yacht Club (RBYC),
253 St Kilda Street, Brighton
The meeting will commence at 7.30 p.m. sharp
Given the Covid 19 situation in Melbourne, this original schedule will possibly be unavailable, so we will prepare for an online meeting on the same date and time. We will make the final call closer to the time, prior to sending out the meeting agenda and reports.
The formal AGM information pack including agenda, forms and reports, will be sent 14 days prior to the meeting.
If the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Anton Huette is held as intended at the above venue, it will be in a room allocated by the RBYC. If permitted by the relevant Covid Regulations at the time, members will be welcome to use the excellent bar facilities which will be open before and after the AGM. A light supper will be provided at the conclusion of AGM’s for all present.
The Committee encourages all members to attend and contribute to a successful 2020 AGM.
