Rules of the Lodge

Rules of the Lodge

Our lodge is for the use and pleasure of our membership. Lodge operations are a necessary part of our way of life, and your cooperation and assistance has been the key to our past success. In order to continue to realize the best utility of the lodge, efficient lodge operations and warm and friendly relationships among all, the following Rules of the Lodge have been established. The rules are at a minimum, but due to the communal style of living, and the lodge’s financial value these rules must be followed. The lodge manager is the chief enforcer of these rules.

  • Recognize the authority of the Lodge Manager, realize that her/his job is difficult at times and cooperate with him/her.
  • Illegal substances are never allowed at the lodge.
  • Be considerate of others. TV’s or electronic devices are not allowed at the lodge. The club encourages social interaction and conversation.
  • Community meals are served at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. unless otherwise announced by the lodge manger.
  • Try to conserve water…we do not have a surplus.
  • Try to conserve heat…do not tamper with the thermostat setting.
  • Check the weep sheet for your assignment(s). These assignments are to be completed and initialed. If, for any reason, you cannot do your job or wish to change your assignment, please check with your lodge manager.
  • Drivers must leave their keys on the hook corresponding to your parking place diagram board located on the stairway wall. Please list your car license plate number on the bunk sheet next to your name.
  • Guests are the responsibility of their hosts who then should fill them in on our operation and introduce them around, particularly to the lodge manager. At no time are guests allowed to be in the lodge without their sponsoring member.
  • Applicants are considered preferred guests of the club and the lodge manager therefore assumes responsibility.
  • At no time are applicants or guests to be in the lodge without a member in attendance.
  • No children are allowed in the lodge unsupervised. An adult must always be present.
  • Parents are asked to keep their children under personal supervision. It is suggested that children age ten and under be in bed by 9 p.m.
  • Well behaved children are welcome at the lodge. Screaming, fighting, and running through the lodge is distracting and will not be tolerated. Lodge managers can and will enforce order.
  • No smoking is allowed in the lodge.
  • No food or drink (except water) is allowed in the bunk rooms.
  • Loud talking and noise should be suspended from 11 p.m. to breakfast.
  • Everyone is to have all belongings off floors and on bunks by 9 a.m. Sunday morning, so floors may be vacuumed.
  • Members and guests making long distance phone calls are to reverse the charges, bill the call to a 3rd party, or use a credit card. There should not be any calls charged to the lodge telephone.
  • The lodge is to be locked when unoccupied. Last person out locks the door.
  • Everyone is requested to return to the lodge by 4:30 p.m. on Sunday or make arrangements with the lodge manager. The lodge manager is responsible for shutting down and securing the lodge. Please be considerate. Return to the lodge in enough time to complete your chores so that the lodge manager is not unnecessarily delayed.
