CABIN INFORMATION AND RULES (2019)

Membership
Our cabin lease is January 8, 2020 to  May 3, 2020. You are welcome to come and go as you wish. The Freestylers Ski Club functions on honest adult attributes. We have very few rules-mostly common courtesy.

Your membership is $1250 p/p or  $1875 per couple non-transferable. The membership committee upon receiving complaints about a member has the power to solve the situation up to and including removal of the person from the Freestylers membership. The dismissed member may receive a proportional rebate of their membership fees.

Guests
A member is responsible for all actions of their guests including guest fees. Guest fees are $30.00 per person per night for your guests. For a period of two years following membership, a past member's guest fees shall be at the current nightly fee for the first three nights. The fourth night and any subsequent nights shall be at $50 per night. Please pay by check. You should try to limit your guests to one on all busy weekends. Members must be present at the cabin with their guests. A member may not send a guest to the lodge without the member being there. A member shall not bring a hitchhiker as a guest. Remember your responsibilities!

Visits From Previous Members
We have agreed to allow ex-members who have moved away:from the area (400 miles or more from Sacramento) to use the cabin while visiting the area. Each case must be approved prior to the use of the cabin and the person must pay double the existing guest fee, unless they are the guest of a member and that member is present. Guests of visiting ex-members pay the $30 guest rate.

Sign-In Book
Upon arrival at the cabin (even mid-week), a member is required to place his/her name and guest(s) in the sign-in book. This is a courtesy for someone who arrives after you, to let them know who's there. It is also a record for collecting guest fees. You cannot phone the cabin or in any other way have your name signed in or placed in the cuddle arrangements. You must sign yourself and your guest(s) into the book. If you are are not signed in, your are not at the cabin.

Cuddle Arrangements
In addition to the sign-in book, we have devised a system to let members know who is in each bedroom. Each of the 5 bedrooms has a name. We have made a display chart with a pocket corresponding for each bedroom. All members will have a name card in the chart. Upon arrival, a member will take their name card and place it in the chart indicating which bedroom they have. They will also place a male or female guest card with theirs, if they have a guest. The next member to sign-in can easily look at the CUDDLE ARRANGEMENTS and see at a glance who is where and what bedroom is available. This is especially important for someone arriving late at the cabin.

Club members have priority for the beds until 10:00 p.m. - on a first come first served basis. On crowded weekends, guests may be assigned to beds in bedrooms after 10:00 p.m.. Few problems are expected as the cabin is large and there are lots of beds (Remember the sign-in book and cuddle arrangements chart).

Clean Up
It is expected and common courtesy to clean up after yourself. Don't forget to scrub the bathtub, sweep the floors, carry out the trash, vacuum the floors, etc. The trash is picked up at 6:00 a.m. Tuesday. Put the trash out on Sunday when you leave. Be sure to put the tops on tight.

We have a dishwasher. All dishes should be cleaned and put away upon leaving the cabin. This is only common courtesy. No one likes to have to clean others' messes, nor should they be expected to.

Fights. Disagreements or Verbal Arguments
Fighting at the cabin is not allowed. Anyone fighting at the cabin will be asked to leave. If you, as a member, get in a fight your membership is automatically terminated. If you have a disagreement with another member, report it to the membership committee. If you have a problem with your guest, please resolve it in a way that does not disturb other members. If you have a problem with another person's guest, discuss it with the responsible member. A member is responsible for both themselves and his/her guests. We will not tolerate either a member or non-member arguing with anyone else. '

The cabin is a fun place and a retreat for many of us so please leave your problems and your problem guests at home. Other members do not deserve to hear disagreements or verbal abuse.

Smoking
Our cabin is non-smoking. Please step outside to smoke and take an ash tray with you.

Firewood
Firewood is included in the membership fee. Have a nice fire, but don't waste wood as it is expensive and only increases the dues. The gas starter is just that a STARTER. It is important to leave kindling for the next person to build a fire. It is also nice to fill the wood box inside before leaving.

Pets
Pets are nice, but they cause problems. Many people are allergic to cats and no one wants a muddy paw on their clothes. Please leave animals at home except during kids and pets weeks.

Linens
Most of the beds have blankets, bedspreads, and pillows. You may bring your own sheets and pillowcases if you wish. You should be prepared, in case you do not get a bedroom to bring and sleep in a sleeping bag. Linen is provided at the cabin. If you use it, please change the bed and wash and fold the linen before leaving.

If you use your sleeping bag, please put a sheet under it to keep the bedspread clean.

Food and Booze
There are staples at the cabin. You must bring all other food. Since there is no workable system for sharing booze, it is BYOB.

Bathrooms
Another common courtesy area! Toiletry should be restricted to the bathrooms and bedrooms. Please try and keep the bath counters clear of your personal toiletry items when not in use. Since early morning usage is busy in each bathroom, use the mirrors in the bedrooms for primping. Bathrooms will be designated as men's and women's for heavy use periods. The upstairs bath is for women and the downstairs is for men. Please be courteous. Others have the same needs as you.

Kids
The club is for adults to ski, relax, and party, not for baby-sitting. A person is considered to be an adult if 18 and mature. Kids weeks will be the week before and after Easter. This year the dates are March 26 - April 11, 2010. Pets are O.K. during this time also. Guest fees for kids and pets are $10 per night.
