Equipment
-Reminder that when you show up at the course you must replace any missing buoys BEFORE you ski. This is the only fair way for all members to enjoy the course and not over burden the equipment manager. One of the jobs of equipment manager is to make sure there is equipment at the course ready to install but not to replace missing buys unless he or she is the one that shows up at the course with missing buoys.
-Club has an air chair and portable slalom course for club use, contact VP of Equipment to reserve.
-USA Water ski sign in sheet must be signed each day you ski the clubs course. Sign in sheet is located in the white binder in the dock box.

Membership
-Reminder that we are on a public lake and non members can use the course when not being used by members. If possible non members use the course between member sets if time allows.
-Reminder to follow all state boating laws: Use a flag, coast guard approved vest, spotter, and go wakeless speed within 150’ of the dock and other boats.
