Covid-19:  Respect people's personal space.  Wear masks indoors if you haven't been vaccinated.  

Volunteers Needed:  Please remember this is a club of volunteers.  The club needs it's volunteers to keep operational.  The very small membership fees are due to expectations that club members volunteer throughout the year to help improve the facilities for all the club members and their guests.
