As storms threaten our club, we need to be prepared to take proactive measures to protect our facility. In support of this goal, the House and Grounds Committee has prepared quick-reference procedures for each stage of storm preparation. These procedures are available here on the website, in the Club Operating Manual, and on the downstairs south wall of the clubhouse (east of the regatta room). These procedures will help mitigate damage to the club, personnel, members and guests.
