Proposed Changes to Requirements for Non Sailing Functions held at the SSS

You may be aware that the current club policy includes rules for determining what types of non sailing functions (social events) may be held at the club and what fees are applicable. These rules have been in place for many years, and have been periodically changed to adapt to the changing club environment and membership. After having reviewed the current requirements in Article XVII of the Standing Rules, the revised rules (below) are being proposed.

As members, you are encouraged to review the proposed changes and provide any feedback on them to any of the Board members. Your comments will be considered prior to any change in the Standing Rules.
