A Leave of Absence offers a temporary period of inactive membership. These begin on the first of a month for a 3 month minimum with a monthly maintenance fee of $5. Requests for a Leave of Absence must be made in advance and acknowledged by management. These must be received by the 15th of the last month of active membership (prior to effective date). A member may not use the Club, even as a guest, while on a Leave of Absence. Reinstatement is possible at any time after 3 months and, at that time, the membership will be charged only pro-rated dues for the remainder of that month. Reinstatement before the agreed minimum is possible if the member agrees to pay regular dues for the months he/she was on “leave”.
