Message from the GM (August 2021)

Dear Members,

Welcome to the "DOG DAYS of SUMMER". The Summer heat is upon us, and we all should try to stay healthy and cool.

It is club policy that reservations for all guests, must be called in advance by the sponsoring member themselves. Please inform me when you get a new credit card whether it was lost or it has a new expiration date.

Recently we've have had a lot of guests walk in the club saying that they are friends of "John Q" member. It is club policy that reservations for all guests, must be called in advance by the sponsoring member themselves. Please keep in mind that although we do encourage you to send your guests to enjoy the club and even though I may know some of these guests from previous visits, it would be greatly appreciated if all members would adhere to this policy so all parties can avoid a potentially embarrassing situation. Thank you for your cooperation with this important matter.

Please keep in mind that our annual closing dates will be September 19th thru October 4th.
We will re-open on Tuesday, October 5th.


Sincerely,

Vinnie Feola
General Manager
