Thanks to the Social Committee’s efforts on Docks In day. The cupboards and appliances have been cleaned and sanitized. The contents of the cupboards and drawers have been washed and placed back into the designated kitchen cabinets and drawers. After consultation with members that are professional health workers, the kitchen and the contents pose little risk of spreading Covid-19. That said, the kitchen and the contents are still Use at Your Own Risk for the small possibility of Covid-19 or other surface-born contaminants.
When you have the opportunity to use the clubhouse, here are the House Rules. Please:
- Clean up after yourself and take all leftover food home with you, including your refrigerator items.
- Wash any club items that you used and wipe up or sweep/mop up any areas that you used.
- Properly dispose of your trash and recycling items. It’s important that food in trash bags be taken out to the dumpster! It helps reduce the number of critters getting into the clubhouse. There are additional trash bags, towels cleaning supplies in the washtub closet outside the men’s restroom
- If you prefer, there are a limited number of disposable items available for your use. If you have any wrapped disposable items, the kind that come in your carry-out orders and you would like to donate for use at the club, please place in the bin in the kitchen.
The House Committee also worked hard on Docks In and have set up brand new lightweight picnic tables inside the house. These will be easier to move and the old heavy wood ones have been moved outside. We do ask that people refrain from sitting on the new tabletops. They do have a weight limit and it’s not nice to put your feet where others will sit.
Supplies: Additional toilet paper and folded paper towels can be found in the cabinets inside each restroom. Our excellent cleaning guy, Anthony, is back for his 3rd year and we are very grateful. He knows the routine and typically keeps us well stocked but if you need something, it shouldn’t be too hard to find in the closet and cabinets.
First Aid Supplies: We do have a first aid kit and an AED (automated external defibrillator) inside the kitchen, in the first cabinet to the right after entering from the hallway. We hope it’s never needed but if people don’t know where to find it, it won’t do us any good!
More details about House and Kitchen Rules can be found in your 2021 HSC Directory in the Bylaws section on pages 86-88. Last year we published a helpful article about the care of the clubhouse here: http://hooversailingclub.com/2020/07/01/taking-care-of-our-clubhouse/
Would you like a picnic table? See photo below. Six old picnic tables by the parking lot close to the wood pile need new homes. First come, first serve! We start disassembly and recycling of any tables remaining on the grass by the end of April.
