Prospective new member openings for the year 2013 were subject to our existing member renewal rate which was the highest it has ever been at 95%.
As of 12/31/12 we had only 22 openings from non-renewals available for newcomers 1/1/13 (half as many as on 1/1/12).
While we said on this website that application taking would occur at our clubhouse as of 9 am New Year's day, when the directors arrived well before that time, we had over 150 total cars lined up both ways on Burton Lane. With only 22 openings to hand out, we opted to give numbers to the first 22 people in line, started taking their applications at 8:15 AM and we sent the remaining folks home as there was no point in keeping anyone waiting any longer. Those who successfully made the cut had waited from 8:45 pm the nite before til about 5 AM. Anyone who was in line after 5 AM 1/1/13 ended up being turned away.
New members received their electronic gate cards by mail in early Feb. If a gate card is lost during the year, there is a $25 replacement charge...send name and check to our PO Box to get a replacement.
Memberhip application process for 2014 will be posted here on this website around Dec. 1, 2013.
