A primary membership is held by an individual over 18 years, or the heads of household for a Family Membership. Anyone under 18 will have to be associated with a Family Membership, and must be accompanied by one of the adults in that membership.
Membership Dues and Fees
The yearly membership time frame is from January 1st to December 31st. If you join at anytime during the year, the membership expires on December 31st, and must be renewed to remain a member. Dues aren't prorated! Renewal period is from October 1st to December 31st for the following year.
Renewals are due by December 31st! If mailed, renewals with a postmark after December 31st will be rejected and returned to the sender. Our bylaws prohibit us from processing late renewals, and require an individual to rejoin in order to continue membership.
Children of Family Membership Turning 18 Years Old
Children of family memberships, 18 and older, can't be included in family memberships. If you have children turning 18 and they would like to continue their membership in the club, we've made special provisions.
