If you are NOT an NYKP regular or otherwise experienced player, please communicate your background to the session host(s) beforehand, as this venue can be quite challenging for novices.

1. No bikes or hazardous items inside the boathouse;
2. No storage items beyond rack boundaries;
3. Dry your PFD/SKIRTS outside before putting back in storage (but don’t forget);
4. Squeegee water around racks into drain;
5. Bring any complaint(s) to the attention of board members.
