Rules of Operation:
1. Each membership is limited to one (1) deck or powered boat on the lake at one time.
2. At the present, there is no limit on the number of canoes or sailboats a lot owner can have on the lake.

3. There are "NO WAKE" times before 10:00AM and after 7:00PM on weekends and holidays. "NO WAKE" means that ALL operators must reduce speed so that no wake is left trailing the watercraft.

Boating noise is to be limited during the quiet time between sunset and 9:00AM.
