Club Driveway and Vehicle Access to Ranges
The snow in December closed the driveway to vehicle access.
As reported to members previously, there were some problems with
spreading gravel on the drive in late fall. After the snow melts these
problems will need to be resolved before the driveway can be used
Condition and opening of the driveway will be announced to club
members in the spring.
Clubhouse Closed for Winter

The clubhouse has been fully winterized. With the water turned off and
pipes drained, restrooms in the clubhouse are not usable. The door

clubhouse will not be accesible until spring. Please contact the Club
Secretary if you have questions. (Club contact

Dues Increase for 2017-18
Annual club dues will be a bit higher for the 2017-18 membrship year.
Regular annual memberships will increase from $50 to $60. Senior and
student memberships will increase from $25 to $30.
Dues last increased in Spring 2001, and have been held at $50
for sixteen years. Despite numerous efficiencies, club expenses have
climbed steadily. The Consumer Price Index shows that $50 in 2001
dollars is equivalent to about $69 at present. So, despite the $10
increase, the cost of club membership still represents a real bargain
compared with dues of sixteen years ago.
