Spring 2017 Update:
On April 10, club officers
temporaily reset the combination for the lock on the gate of the
driveway into the club property. As usual, the spring snow melt has
left the driveway soft. Any vehicle traffic can damage the roadbed.
When the drive again becomes usable, the lock will be reset
with the usual combination furnished with club membership.
Before the May 1st ending
of the current membership year,
the gate lock may be opened with the combination for the 2016-17
membership year (except during the driveway drying-out period.)
That combination was furnished with the 2016-17 membership card.
On May 1, 2017
, the starting date of the PLSC annual
membership period for 2017-18, the gate lock combination is scheduled
to be changed. The new combnation as usual will be printed on the
membership card furnished to new and renewing members of the club.
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.
