Group Application/Reservation Rules
A group is a single gathering of 10 or more persons. All groups must register at least one (1) week prior to the gathering so the Board and the Caretaker can prepare facilities and provide adequate security and lifeguards. Registrations may not be made for the year until January 1st of that year, at which point they can be made on a first-come, first-serve basis.
In order to reserve the Club House, Pavilion, or Lake House, email the Groups Committee Chairperson : Sue Sowa
You will receive a call text or email back to confirm that the date and time are set.

Please include the names of those guests who are members in the application to provide a total count, even though there will be no fees for these individuals. If you do not know if your guests are Club members, you can request a list from Shelly Thomas. As guests check in at the Welcome Center, the guards will record the exact number that arrived. You will not be billed for non-member guests on your list that did not arrive.
