Due to the liability issues regarding Dirt Bikes, Snowmobiles ATV/UTV’s  use;

The Officers and the Board of directors have established the following regulation:

Dirt bikes or snowmobiles are prohibited on club property. ATV’s/UTV’s may be used on a limited basis for work parties with prior Board approval. These vehicles must be registered and insured.

Camping and campers policy Update Vote

Use of our facility by members is encouraged. However the use of the property and facilities must be a shared use.

Therefore the board of directors recommend the following;

Definition of a camper- Tent, travel trailer, motorhome, motorized vehicle that can be used as a temporary sleeping facility (truck camper or pick up with a camper shell).

Any motorhome, travel trailer, motorized vehicle used for camping on the property must have a current motor vehicle registration and state inspection for the state in which it is registered.

A camper will be allowed to use the property for a period of no longer than two weeks and then must be removed from the property and not returned to the property for a period of two weeks. This time period will be monitored by the board of directors.

All camping on the property must be “dry camping”. The term dry camping is commonly used to mean that the camper is not physically hooked up to water, electric or sewer facilities of the club.

All campers will be allowed in the cleared area opposite of the “Old Mans’ Dock”, there will be no camping allowed in the close proximity of the club house and the surrounding grass areas.

The club grounds will not be used as a storage facility for camping units. Units left on the property after the allowed two weeks may be towed from the property and the cost of towing passed on to the member

Violation of this policy may be cause for suspension or expulsion from the club.

This policy will be proposed at the January meeting and submitted to a membership vote at the February meeting.
