Lynda Reid, who was ejected from the queue to the Members Stand on the grounds that her dress, which sat a few inches above the knee, was inappropriate attire, wrote to the SCG Trust expressing her disappointment, and challenging its management to come up with any 'coherent basis' on which they could claim her attire was not appropriate, under the official dress code.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Reid asked that her SCG membership be cancelled, her yearly fees refunded, and for her two children to be removed from the waiting list for membership, following which she received a letter from SCG, fulfilling her wishes, although it did not contain any apology.
However, the letter said that the SCG regularly reviews its dress regulations and is always open to consider members' suggestions for proposed changes.
But Reid, who is not a member anymore, said that her reaction to the SCG;'s response and the absence of any kind of apology has reinforced her decision to part ways with them, adding that she believes there is no clarity with the dress code and it seems to be arbitrarily enforced with unwritten rules made up on the spot.
