Is the initial fee a one-time fee, or is it due at the start of every year?

The initial fee is charged only at the beginning of your membership, and not every year.

How long does my membership last?

You can continue your membership, at the same monthly price, for at least 3 years.  Afterwards, there could be adjustments in price, but we don’t foresee any price changes at this time.

What happens if I do not wish to continue my membership?

You can conclude your membership at any time.  If you do so, and later want to re-join, you would be subject to paying the initial fee again.

Can I just pay my membership fees in the summer months?

We do not have a seasonal plan and there are a number of reasons why we prefer not to do so:

  • We keep at least 4 boats available to be used throughout the year
  • The facility and overhead costs for the club continue all year long.
  • If we were to have a seasonal plan, the payments would need to be higher.  It is our perception that members would rather spread their payments out, rather than to have a concentration of higher payments in the warmer months.  Your feedback and preferences would be welcome on this and other topics.

 Why is there a different discount for week-days and weekends?

We want to ensure boats are available as much as possible for our customers.  Weekend use is traditionally higher.  The greater discount on week-days provides an incentive for those who can boat on those days to do so.  The weekday-only option is particularly beneficial for people who are retired.

What days are defined as weekends and holidays as it pertains to Club discounts?

Weekdays are defined as Monday through Thursday, but not on a major national holiday, the day before that holiday, nor the day after that holiday.
