The following are general rules and regulations relating to use of the Mackinac Island Yacht Club clubhouse:
The clubhouse will open in May and close at a predetermined date in October.
The use of the clubhouse for Club functions will be of first priority. The Commodore, Vice-Commodore or Clubhouse Manager will advise members as early as possible of the calendar of events for the summer.
Members may privately entertain in the clubhouse when the facilities are not being used for a Club function. All private entertainment must conform to these rules:
A member, not privately entertaining in the facilities, shall not bring into the clubhouse at any time, such number of guests as may unreasonably interfere with normal membership enjoyment of Club facilities.
Adult children of members shall be considered guests of that member and it is expected that the member will be present when guests are using the facilities unless the guests are staying in the clubhouse.
Children under 18 years of age must be supervised by a parent or equally responsible adult at all times.
A limited number of lockers are provided to the membership for a small charge. These should be kept locked and may be used to store a member’s private beverage supply. Ice and mix are supplied by the Club.
All reservations, reservation policies and clubhouse rules will be subject to the General Manager’s, Commodore’s and/or Rear Commodore’s discretion. Any questions, comments, etc., should be sent in writing to the clubhouse. In no circumstance will the members or their guests be permitted to isolate an MIYC employee(s) with complaints regarding room reservation policies, clubhouse rules, etc.
In the interest of sound business practices and the promotion of Club activities, each season the Manager shall have the discretion to establish additional limitations, restrictions and/or requirements regarding room reservations and deposits for dates coinciding with Club activities or Yacht Races. The membership will be notified of these special limitations prior to June 1 of each year and anyone whose reservations are affected will be given an opportunity to comply or have their deposit refunded in full.
