You can sign up and pay at the greeter station, or in the office if the greeter station is closed.

If you have not received the email, please contact Nancy March –  



Lost and Found  – Items from our lost and found have been washed and organized.  Please take a few moments to check through the items left behind to see if you can locate any of your belongings.  We will be donating any remaining items at the end of this week.

Babysitter Pass  – As a reminder, If your child is accompanied to the club by a babysitter, you must have purchased the Childcare Provider Pass.  This does not include Grandparents, who may accompany your children to the club at any time, free of charge.  If you have not done so, please do so immediately.

Member Check-in ProceduresAll members should have received an email explaining the new procedures that our greeters will be using to check in members and their guests.  The highlights of the email are below:

  1. All members must stop at the greeter station to check in.  If not greeter is on duty, please pay guest fees in the office.
  2. Effective immediately, all members should be prepared to present photo ID when entering the club.  As our greeters get to know you this may not be necessary.
  3. Guests will not be allowed into the club without a member escorting them, and must exit the club when the member leaves.   
  4. If your guest is arriving after you, please plan to meet them at the gate.  Your guest may be asked to call you to meet them.

Trash – We ask that families clean up after themselves. We have several trash barrels placed throughout the club that are emptied regularly.  We find trash left behind on picnic tables, stashed under chairs or just left in the various play areas.  Please help us keep the club clean by ensuring that your trash is placed in the proper receptacle.

Entering and Exiting the Club MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN

We have had a few near accidents in the last week.  PLEASE, BE AWARE OF THE PROPER ENTRANCE TO THE CLUB.  MAKE YOUR GUESTS AWARE. The driveway closest to the clubhouse is the entrance.  The driveway closest to the dumpster is the exit. Please inform your guests of this before their arrival.
