Social Use of Club by Members
Members do not have to call the Rental Manager to arrange for use of the Ropewalk for less than 21 people. This means 20 people per member per event. Two members at the same private social event does not allow 40 people in attendance. Please sign your name, number in party and time of usage (beginning to end) on the appropriate day on the social calendar. Please set up during your sign up time and not before.

If a member wishes to sign up for the use of the Club, he/she should understand that this does not “reserve” the Club; other members may also sign up for the same time slot. Club sponsored activities take precedence and because of official Club activities, personal use may at times be limited or not available.

If the personal use of the Club is for an activity that requires a presenter/leader/teacher, etc., that person shall not be paid for his/her service. If this activity goes beyond a one-time use, it is understood that the Club cannot be booked more than one week in advance and that there is no guaranty that Club activities may not cause a cancellation.

This policy is designed to make the Club available to members for their personal use, while keeping in mind that the main purpose of the Arundel Yacht Club is to provide boating and social activities for all its members.

Please empty your trash, garbage, in the appropriate containers and dispose in the dumpster outside. When using more than 1 or 2 dishtowels, please take home and launder and return to club promptly.

It is all AYC members’ responsibility to lock up and secure the club if we are the last ones out and there are no other members or club Steward on premise at the time of departure. This especially pertains to late night social gatherings.
