Happy Hours – Every Friday 5pm – ?

Hello Everyone,

In looking to bring back a long running event at the club, starting this Friday July 12th and every Friday night going forward the club will be hosting a Happy Hour and campfire starting around 5pm. There is no need to RSVP to this event and anyone looking to come should bring a snack to pass. This is a Bring Your Own Beverage event and will occur rain or shine. 

Hope to see you Friday!


Gate Policy

The front gate should be kept locked at all times when there is not a member physically present on the grounds. If a member enters the grounds with the intent of remaining within the clubhouse or within the immediate vicinity of the clubhouse then the gate may be left open. However, when the member departs, either by land or by water, the gate is to be locked. The gate will be left unlocked during scheduled Club events, and members hosting a private event that includes non-members may leave the gate unlocked. Again, a member must be present in order for the gate to remain unlocked.
