Driveway Gate Is Now In Use

The driveway gate is currently active and being used.  If it is locked when you arrive, you can unlock it using the same passcode as the Clubhouse doors.  The gate must be manually opened and closed.  After unlocking the gate, be sure to scramble the code so the unlock passcode doesn’t remain visible on the lock.

If you are the last one leaving the property, make sure you close and lock the gate, and scramble the code so the unlock passcode doesn’t remain visible on the lock.

Hunter’s Education Class, October 22, 2016

An ODNR sponsored Hunter’s Education will be taking place on Oct 22nd from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM inside the clubhouse.  If you have a youth (or yourself!) that is interested in attending, sign up on the Ohio Division of Wildlife web site.

Members: In the past, this has not affected use of the range on the outside of the building; however, kindly check in with Bruce before assuming this is the case.
