Over many years, members have expressed concern that the club was not available for use on some federal holidays. The former and current policy closes the club for use when it is rented by a member. Many club members have the federal holidays off and it is one of the few times they can use the club, pond, and ranges. Based on this feedback, the board proposed and the membership approved a new clubhouse rental policy. On the ten federal holidays, the new policy only allows the clubhouse to be rented in the evenings, starting one-half hour before sunset. This policy change is designed to allow members more access to the ranges on days they do not have to work. The membership present at the November meeting felt this change was the best compromise. Rental of the clubhouse is still allowed on all other days of the year and the grounds are closed for use during the rental period. Use of the ranges by the renter is still not allowed.
