CODE OF CONDUCT
Lake Naomi and Timber Trails Communities are a haven for families seeking peace, tranquility, natural beauty and exceptional recreational opportunities. To preserve that environment, the general rule to follow is the Golden Rule – behave toward others as you would want them to behave toward you. We believe that you will find that the following more specific rules flow directly from that basic premise, that they do not restrict your enjoyment , but are sensible guidelines to ensure everyone’s enjoyment of all that our Communities offer. These rules are a supplement to, and do not supersede, the Deed Restrictions, the Architectural Standards, the Codes of Conduct adopted by the Associations and the rules set out in the Lake Naomi Club Leisure Service Guide for conduct at specific amenities, all of which should be considered to be incorporated into this Code of Conduct and its enforcement. Taken together, all of them form the basis of good citizenship in the Communities. A.

They are wholeheartedly recommended by the Club for bicyclists of all ages. 2) Ride on the right side of the roadway, with traffic. 3) Ride single file, never side by side. 4) Whenever possible, give a hand signal to let other riders or drivers know that you intend to turn or stop. 5) Obey yield or stop signs and all traffic lights. 6) Keep hands on the handlebars at all times — riding "no hands" is dangerous and unlawful. 7) Never carry another person on your bike unless it is a bicycle built for two. 8) Never hitch rides by holding onto cars or other vehicles. 9) Be sure to lock bikes at all times when unattended at Lake Naomi Club facilities or programs. 10) Always use the bicycles/pedestrian path to get from the entrance to Timber Trails to Gross Drive in Lake Naomi. 11) When walking or jogging, stay on left side of the road facing traffic. 12) Walk and jog in single file when traffic approaches.

DOGS AND PETS
Lake Naomi and Timber Trails Rules and Regulations and Pennsylvania State Laws require that all pets be on their owner’s property or under the control of their owners at all times. The Lake Naomi - Timber Trails code of conduct states the following: 1) All pets must be properly licensed according to State, County or Municipal laws. 2) It is the responsibility of the handler to pick up and properly dispose of all dog feces. 3) All dogs must be on a leash under 8 feet in length and under the 17
control of their handler at all times when not on the owner’s property. The leash requirement is in effect from the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend until November 1. From November 1 until the Friday of Memorial Day weekend, the leash law is relaxed, however all pets still must remain under the control of their handlers at all times. Under no circumstances are pets permitted to run at large. In addition, barking dogs are bothersome to your neighbors and the Community at large. Barking dogs are also prohibited by the Tobyhanna Township Municipal Code. Please keep dogs that are prone to barking inside your home. Pets are not permitted at any of the Lake Naomi-Timber Trails Recreation Facilities including beaches and adjacent grassy areas except for the Lake Naomi Club Dog Park located at the entrance to the Logan Steele Community Center.
DO NOT FEED DUCKS/GEESE
While the ducks and geese on the various lakes and ponds in Lake Naomi and Timber Trails may add a great deal to the beauty and serenity of the Community, they also pose a tremendous threat to the health and welfare of all Club Members. The number of ducks and geese in the Community has increased substantially over the last ten years. This increase is due largely to the cleanliness of the lakes and ponds and to the fact that Club Members feed the ducks and geese on a regular basis. The droppings from the ducks and geese have the ability to contaminate (and thus require closing) the beaches, etc. in a very short period of time. These droppings can also cause a number of highly infectious illnesses due to their very high fecal (bacteria) count. The Club needs your help in controlling the duck and geese population. Please do not feed the ducks and geese under any circumstances.
DO NOT FEED DEER
Many people feel that they are performing a kind act by feeding wild animals, especially deer. But actually they are creating problems for the deer such as the stronger deer become more aggressive, not allowing the weaker deer to feed. Disease is spread quicker when deer congregate in large herds. Deer feed is actually very bad for the animal’s digestive system causing a rare condition called Laminitis. This disease causes great pain when deer try to walk on deformed hooves that result. Not only does artificial feeding of deer compromise the health of the deer, it also compromises the health of the forest. More and more deer are moving into the community and eating everything natural within their grasp. This action is not allowing our forest to regenerate which could cause total loss of our forest over time. The two Community Associations have taken serious steps to control the deer population to allow forest regeneration. Deer Management steps have been successful however the issue remains very serious, and the two Community Associations for the Lake Naomi – Timber Trails Community continue to prohibit deer feeding within the community. Feeding deer is punishable by fine. Please do your part to help the deer and the forest. Please do not feed the deer.
Door-To-Door solicitations of any kind are not permitted in Lake Naomi and Timber Trails. If you receive any type of door-to-door solicitation, please call the Gatehouse (570-646-2550) immediately so that prompt action can be taken.

With the addition of the Dog Park we want Members and their pets to enjoy the facility with a few safety suggestions in mind. 1. Make your initial visit to the park during a non-peak time. This allows you and your pet to become familiar with the area. Non-peak times are usually weekdays during the late afternoon. 2. Know your dog. Not all dogs are good candidates for off-leash dog parks. If your dog has not had regular interaction with other dogs, it may lack the necessary social skills to make your visit safe and enjoyable. 3. Let your dog off-leash as soon as you enter the park. Mixing of leashed and unleashed dogs commonly causes problems. Leashed dogs often feel threatened by the free dogs and can display defensive behavior. If you are uncomfortable leaving your dog off-leash it is recommended that you do not visit the park. 4. Follow Dog Park Rules. Please read and understand all Dog Park rules before using the Dog Park. DOG PARK GUIDELINES 1. The Dog Park will be open from sunrise to sunset. 2. Pick up after your dog. Use the provided bags and receptacle for the disposal of your dog's waste. 3. Dogs must have current vaccinations. 4. Dogs must be leashed when entering and exiting Dog Park. 5. Aggressive dogs are not permitted on the premises. Dogs must be removed at the first sign of aggression. 6. Female dogs in heat are prohibited from entering the park. Spayed/ Neutered dogs are recommended. 7. Dog owners must be in the park and within view of their dog(s) at all times. 8. All off-leash dogs must be under voice control of their owners. 9. Dog owners must keep their leash in hand at all times. 10. Children are not recommended in the Dog Park. If you must bring a child to the Dog Park, supervise them closely. 11. Do not bring more than three dogs. 12. Please do not bring food or smoke in the Dog Park.

LAKE AND WATERCRAFT GUIDELINES
Lake Naomi is a mountain lake with cold springs and obstacles at or below the surface and is subject to squalls and unpredictable weather, all of which can be unsafe for watercraft and dangerous for swimming. Beginner and refresher instruction on watercraft handling and sailing is available from the Club. Contact the Club Beach Supervisor in the Sailing Office at 570-646-LAKE for details. Radio-equipped Safety Boats are maintained at Club Beach or on the water during normal operating hours and can be contacted to respond to lake emergencies through the Sailing and Beach Staff Members or by calling the Gatehouse at 570-6462550. The Beach Staff and Safety Boat operators are on duty to assure safe and enjoyable operations for Members and Guests by enforcing the guidelines established for their protection and benefit by taking any action they deem appropriate to discharge that responsibility. The lakes and ponds in the Community, although owned by the Club, are subject to the Pennsylvania State Boating Requirements. The Safety Boat operators will monitor Member compliance with the Boating Requirements listed below. Members are responsible to comply with the following and if found in violation of these rules are subject to fines by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. 1. Electric motor-driven watercraft must be registered with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 2. Watercraft may be operated only if equipped with one wearable personal USCG (United States Coast Gurad) approved flotation device for each person on board. Seat cushions, etc. do not satisfy this requirement. 3. Rubber rafts and watercraft must meet USCG safety standards and be at least 8 feet in length to be used in the lake as a boat and must be registered with the Club as such. Rafts smaller than 8 feet must remain within 25 feet from the property in which they are launched. 4. Each boat must contain some "mechanical device" (whistle) to make a signal audible for at least one-half mile. 5. Water trampolines are permitted only at the Member’s private dock and must be permanently secured to their dock. The Safety Boat operators will also see that the following additional Club guidelines are observed: 1. Gasoline motors of any type (other than Club owned for Club purposes) are not permitted on the lakes and ponds, even if they are not being utilized. Electric motors (registered with the Commonwealth) are permitted to propel watercraft. 2. Boaters and fisherpersons must maintain a safe distance (never closer than 25 feet) from other boaters, marinas, beaches and swimming areas. 3. Swimming from watercraft or in the open lake rather than beach areas is discouraged. All swimmers outside these areas must be closely accompanied by an attending boat and approved in advance by the Club Beach Supervisor at 570-646-LAKE. 4. Do not dive from watercraft. Hidden rocks or stumps can cause serious injury. 54
5. Children age 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult on all lakes and ponds and must wear a USCG approved personal flotation device (PFD) at all times. 6. Any of the lakes, ponds and islands are available for recreation from dawn to dusk but fires are never permitted. 7. Boating or sailing in stormy weather is extremely dangerous. Bring your watercraft to shore at the first sign of a thunderstorm. DO NOT WAIT! 8. Playing of music in any boat at any time is strictly prohibited. 9. All boaters must wear their personal flotation device (PFD) at all times when the "PFD Required" flag is flying from the flagpole at Club Beach. This triangular yellow flag will be flown during times of high winds and unpredictable weather. 10. In order to prevent the spreading of aquatic nuisance algae and disease, ALL boats, trailers, rafts, fishing clothing and gear used in other waters MUST be properly treated with a 2% bleach and 140 degree fahrenheit hot water solution, and then allowed 48 hours to thoroughly dry PRIOR to use at Lake Naomi-Timber Trails.
WATERCRAFT TYPE AND SIZE GUIDELINES
The characteristics of Lake Naomi have been the factors determining the Watercraft Type and Size Policy for the Club. The Lake is generally shallow, (one to three feet over much of its area, and rarely over six feet). Consequently, high speed, gasoline-powered watercraft are not appropriate, not only for reasons of traffic safety and noise, but also because the lake’s ecosystem would not withstand any appreciable amount of pollution which would occur from a multiplicity of motors. Accordingly, only a few Club-owned watercraft used for safety, maintenance and organized programs are gas-powered. It is not practical for larger sailboats to be used on the lake due to its limited sailing area, so smaller, monohull sailboats have been chosen for fleet sailing. Another factor governing size is the limited amount of storage space available in marinas. In order to maximize the number of lakeside pullup storage racks, they must be placed so that watercraft of no more than 14 feet in length and 5 feet in width can be accommodated. Somewhat larger watercraft are permitted on the water (see size policy on next page), but will require storage on private property or transportation to the lake for each use. If you are contemplating purchasing a boat (and/or electric motor) for use on LN-TT lakes that differs from common boats on the lake, it is best to request approval beforehand to be sure it meets LNC Guidelines.
Watercraft are generally restricted to being propelled by human effort or wind action. Watercraft may be propelled by battery powered electric "fishing motors" so long as the sound generated and the speed attained are similar to that produced by or attainable by human power. Specifically electric motors are limited to 1.5 horse power rating or 115 thrust rating. Gasoline powered motors are explicitly excluded in their entirety. Jet Skis are not permitted. Gasoline motors may not be 55
attached to any boat even if they are tilted up and out of the water. All watercraft must be maintained in a quality condition so as not to present a safety hazard or an eyesore. No watercraft are permitted with either permanent or portable toilet facilities. Watercraft may not be used for overnight camping or sleeping. Watercraft registration and storage etc. are for the direct use and benefit of end users and may not be commercially exploited. (Specifically, registrations and storage locations may not be resold, rerented, etc. No Scalping Permitted.) All watercraft registration stickers must be permanently affixed to the starboard (right) side, on the stern (back) of the watercraft assigned to that registration sticker. Any temporary attachment of watercraft registration stickers is prohibited.
Monohull sailboats are limited to a length of 16 feet and a beam of 6 feet. Fixed keel boats are not permitted. It is recommended to Club Members that they obtain a sailboat that is represented by one of the organized fleets on the lake (Duster, Sunfish, Laser) if such a boat would meet their needs or otherwise obtain a boat that, through its relative popularity, demonstrates itself to be suitable for the lake. Multihull sailboats are limited to a length of 14 feet and a beam of 8 feet, however, it is recommended to Club Members that they not maintain any multihull sailboats on any of the Club’s lakes. Limited sailing area and irregular conditions are not suitable for this type of craft. Rowboats and pedal boats are limited to the size of the monohull sailboats (16 feet long with a beam up to 6 feet). Canoes, kayaks, and rowing shells must fall into one of the following limits: (a) 18 feet in length and 40 inches in beam; (b) 20 feet in length and 30 inches in beam. Pontoon, platform and deck boats are not permitted. Watercraft on lakes other than Lake Naomi are restricted to a length of 14 feet and a beam of 5 feet, except for canoes, kayaks and rowing shells which may be up to 17 feet in length.
WATERCRAFT REGISTRATION GUIDELINES
Members are required to obtain an annual Lake Naomi Club Registration Sticker for all watercraft that they intend to use on the lakes or store on Club Property during the watercraft season. Boats that utilize electric motors must also be registered with the state of PA. A copy of the current Pennsylvania Boat Registration is requred for boats that utilize elctric motors. SEASON — The boating season extends from April 15 through November 15 each year. Watercrafts may be stored on Club property during this time. Rack Storage dates differ. See "Usage Period" in the next section. MAXIMUM REGISTRATIONS — Up to a total of five (5) watercraft may be registered per Membership. Members who store all of their watercraft on their own property may register up to eight (8) watercraft. A copy of the current Pennsylvania Boat Registration is required for any boats owned by Club Members that utilize electric motors. REGISTRATION STICKER — The Registration Sticker should be permanently affixed to the starboard (right) side, on the stern (rear) of the watercraft by the Saturday prior to Memorial Day weekend each year. The current sticker must overlay or replace any previous year’s sticker. All watercraft registration stickers must be permanently attached to the 56
watercraft assigned to that registration sticker. Any temporary attachment of watercraft registration stickers is prohibited. A $20 non-refundable fee will be charged to replace a lost registration sticker. COMPLIANCE — Safety Personnel and Rangers will monitor onwater registration compliance and compliance in marinas and on other Club Property. ENFORCEMENT — Watercraft on Club Property (which includes most lakefront properties) without current stickers or registered watercraft left on Club Property beyond the season will be removed and delivered to their owners. The service fee for a watercraft delivery is $50.00. When possible, the owner of the watercraft will be notified.
WATERCRAFT RACK USAGE
Boat and canoe/kayak racks are situated at the various beaches and access points around the lakes and are assigned according to the member’s assignment area on a first paid, first assigned basis, as the dues, registration fees and rack fees are received. ASSIGNMENT — Members whose payments are received through January 31 will get first preference to racks in their assigned area. Members whose payments are received through January 31who are requesting racks outside of their assigned area will be assigned after January 31 according to their date of payment. Members submitting payment after January 31 will be assigned to their requested area strictly on a first paid, first assigned basis regardless of their assignment area. Therefore, if a Member desires a particular location, it is critical to submit your dues, registration fees, and rack fees as early as possible. Club Beach Boat Rack Users: The assignment of boat racks at Club Beach Marina will be done based on the type of boat you have. The Club will be grouping boats based on the type of boat it is (i.e. Sunfish, Dusters, etc.) Therefore, the boat registration information must be completely filled out with the boat description when completing your membership invoice. MAXIMUM RACKS — There is a limit of two boat racks and three kayak/canoe racks per Membership. These limits may be exceeded after June 1, based on availability. USAGE PERIOD — The rack usage period extends from the Saturday prior to Memorial Day Weekend until the Monday of Columbus Day Weekend. Watercraft left on racks after the expiration of the usage period are subject to the same pick-up and storage fees listed in the “WATERCRAFT REGISTRATION GUIDELINES” section on the previous page. RESTRICTIONS — Lakeside boat racks are constructed and positioned to accommodate watercraft with a maximum length of 14 feet and width of 5 feet. Watercraft that exceed these dimensions may be stored, upon request, in special areas for an additional fee. The elevated racks are for canoes and kayaks, as designated, only. They are not built to withstand the weight of any other craft. Watercraft stored other than on racks on general access Club property are limited to a weight of 300 pounds. GEAR STORAGE — Additional boating and beach gear (ie. lifejackets, fishing gear, beach chairs, etc.) may not be stored with and/or under boats or on boat racks. Storage of these items exacerbates the already crowded water's edge and boat storage racks as well as can become an eye sore to the lakefront and beach areas. OWNER LIABILITY — The Lake Naomi Club cannot guard against theft or damage of watercraft while stored on Club-owned racks or property. The Club provides no insurance coverage for watercraft and 57
other personal property of Club Members and Guests. It is recommended that all watercraft be locked to the racks at all times that they are unattended. The Club is merely providing racks and storage space in order to facilitate participation in water-related activities. HITCHING POSTS — Limited hitching posts areas are provided at West Beach and Tall Timber Lake Marinas. All "unracked" watercraft must be hitched to these posts. There are no hitching posts at Club Beach, North Beach, Pebble Beach or Lake Naomi Pool. Limited space does not allow for "unracked" watercraft. Hitching to trees, rocks, fence and shrubbery is not permitted. Stacking boats on top of other Members' boats is not permitted. Members' boats continually found on top of other boats and therefore being a nuisance to other Members may be removed and no longer permitted to use the hitching posts. Watercraft attached to natural or man-made fixtures, other than a hitching post, will be removed. FLOATING DOCK — There is a floating dock system at the Administrative Office Marina. A limited number of boat slips will be available to Club Members on a first-come, first-serve basis at the rate of $235 per season. First preference is given to Members who occupied these racks the year prior. Boats with the maximum dimensions of 16 feet in length and 6 feet in width will be permitted.
FISHING GUIDELINES All fisherpersons must wear a current Membership ID along with their Pennsylvania Fishing License (required of all fisherpersons 16 years of age and older). Violators are subject to fines by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. SEASON, SIZES & CREEL LIMITS The following species of fish (with their respective seasons, sizes and creel limits) are commonly found in the Lakes and Streams in the Lake Naomi and Timber Trails Community. Trout: Season opens April 12, 2014. Trout must be at least seven (7) inches in length and each fisherperson may keep four (4) trout per day until the third Saturday in February. From that date all trout are catch and release only. Streams are closed to fishing from the Saturday prior to opening day to opening day. Bass: Largemouth Bass Season opens on the second Saturday in June. The season closes January 1. No Bass may be kept in any waters of the Lake Naomi Club (Deer Trail Lake, Tall Timber Lake, Judges Pond, Trout Pond, etc.). All Bass must be live released. Panfish: This category includes sunfish, yellow perch, crappies, and catfish. For each species there is no size limit and you may keep fifty (combined species) per day. These species of fish are in season throughout the entire year. Chain Pickerel: Although this species is abundant in Lake Naomi, fisherpersons may only keep fish 15" in length or longer and no more than 6 per day. Pickerel may be fished January 1 through March 14 and May 6 through December 31 only. Walleye: This species was stocked in Lake Naomi in the Falls of 1998, 2000 and 2001. They were between 5 - 8 inches when they were stocked. All walleye must be live released. This will allow the walleye to grow to reach the legal size limit. 58
SPECIAL NOTE: The Lakes Committee encourages LIVE RELEASE of all Trout. All bass and walleye must be live released. Take special care to not over tire, squeeze or injure the fish. If possible, keep the fish in the water and gently remove the hook and release when fish is revived. If fish is deeply hooked, simply cut your line close to the fish's mouth. Releasing these species not only increases reproduction, but allows them to provide you sport another day. CLEAN UP YOUR FISHING SITE! The Lakes and Streams throughout the Lake Naomi and Timber Trails Community are shared by fellow Club Members for various recreation activities. It is essential for all fisherpersons to clean up their fishing sites before they leave. Litter, including bait containers, fishing line and plastic and paper wrappers, are unsightly to Club Members and a potential danger to wildlife and bare feet. BOAT FISHING: Club Members are urged to use extreme caution while fishing from rowboats or canoes. Coast Guard Approved Personal Flotation Devices are required for each occupant on all types of watercraft on all waters in the State. Any boats using electric motors must be registered with the PA Fish Commission. All boats used on Lake Naomi, Tall Timber Lake, Deer Trail Lake, Judges Pond and Trout Pond must be registered with the Administrative Office with the current year's registration sticker. The registration sticker should be affixed to the starboard (right) side, on the stern (back) of the watercraft by the Saturday prior to Memoiral Day weekend each year. VEHICLE STICKERS FOR FISHERPERSONS: Club Members are strongly encouraged to obtain a vehicle sticker(s) from the Administrative Office to affix to the driver's side front bumper of their vehicles. This will assist the Patrol Rangers in identifying the vehicle as a Member in good standing. Vehicles without stickers that are parked at lake access areas give the Rangers reason to be suspicious of a non-Club Member using the lakes. FISH FOR FREE DAYS: Monday, May 26 and Friday, July 4. Each year the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission's Executive Directors designate 2 Fish for Free Days. On these days anyone (resident or non-resident) can legally fish without a fishing license. This will be the perfect opportunity to introduce a friend or relative to the lifelong sport of fishing. There is no better way to enjoy LNC great outdoors than a day of fishing with the entire family. All other fishing regulations still apply.
LAKE NAOMI CLUB SAILING ASSOCIATION The Sailing Association, in conjunction with The Lake Naomi Club professional staff, administers recreational and instructional boating programs for both junior sailors and adult sailors throughout the Summer Season.

Allen Rodriguez Past Commodores Frank Blesso, Sr. Bob Mills Tom Cassidy Andy Montano Rich Daggett Jeanne Mullany Brian Drum Blaine Purnell Bob Fenimore Kent Roberts Edee Fenimore Allen Rodriguez Kathy Hyatt Ralph Umstead Stan Lamar John Whipple GENERAL INFORMATION: For your protection the Lake is patrolled by safety boats during recreational hours. Honor the directions of the safety crews. Before boating, be sure you are familiar with the safety rules listed under Lakes, Beaches & Boating in this guide, and consider carefully whether your boating skills are equal to the challenge of the lake. Instructional assistance in boating and sailing is available to all Members. There is scheduled instructional and/or recreational sailing activity on the lake every day. The weekends are particularly busy with the races, regattas and the adult sailing instructional program. In the interest of safety, casual boaters are asked to give way to boaters involved in organized activities and must stay 25 feet away from sailing buoys (anchored orange inflatables). WEEKEND RECREATIONAL SAILBOAT RACING: All Members are invited to join in the fun of the weekend races. Many people require a measure of competition in their recreational activity in order to experience full pleasure. To provide the competitive element in sailing LNC offers a premier program of competitive sailing. Close to one hundred and fifty races divided into three series and additional regattas are staged for sailors in three classes of boats — Dusters, Lasers, and Sunfish. There are at least two races each Saturday and each Sunday from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend. Check the schedule posted on the Sailing Association Bulletin Board at Club Beach or in the Summer Calendar for full details. RC (RADIO CONTROLLED) SAILING: A fourth sailing class sails many Thursday and Sunday afternoons on Lake Naomi near the Administrative Office from May through October and in the LSCC Pool from November through April. Please see the Summer Calendar and the CC bulletin board for the details. 60
There are no special qualifications for racing at Lake Naomi. Less experienced skippers are invited to participate in races run specifically for novice sailors and the "Not Ready for Prime Time" (NRPT) Fleet. Interested Members should refer to the Summer Calendar and Sailing Office for more details. Sailing instructions, including an explanation of the courses, the signals, scoring, protesting and rules, are posted on the Sailing Association Bulletin Board at Club Beach. THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM: In a lake community, boating is a part of every Members’ experience. It is important, for the purpose of full enjoyment and personal safety, that Members of all ages are comfortable on the water in boats. There are instructional programs available for all Members for a registration fee of $150 (due at the time of registration) per Club Member for the instructional sailing programs. Each registrant will receive an end of the season sailing memento as part of the instructional package. INITIAL REGISTRATION AND INFORMATION: Junior/Adult Instructional Program Registration for returning sailors is available online beginning Memorial Day Weekend. Open Registration for new students will be held on June 7 & 8 and June 14 & 15 from 10:00 AM to Noon at the Club Beach Sailing Office. Spaces are limited and available to Members on a first-come, first-serve basis. Payment by check, LNC stored value card or credit card must be received at the time of Registration. Members interested in signing up for instruction after the initial registration will be added to rosters if space remains. Private lessons can also be scheduled on a time and/or space available basis. For additional information call the Sailing Office at 570-646-LAKE or the Community Center. THE JUNIOR PROGRAM — This program runs Monday through Friday. Each group is scheduled 2 days per week for six weeks of instruction beginning Monday, June 23. The emphasis is on both recreational sailing and racing for the more advanced sailors. Students are organized by interest and skill level into developmental fleets. It is a fun program structured to produce safety conscious, knowledgeable and skilled sailors. All Members who are between the ages of eight and sixteen as of September 1 and who can pass the swimming requirements, are welcome to participate. Class size will be limited at each level to 3 students per sailing instructor. A parent is required to accompany each junior sailor to a specified number of classes to become oriented to the program, meet the instructor, understand safety and equipment responsibilities and have an opportunity to ask questions. For the Beginner and Advanced Beginner classes, a parent is required to attend at least one class per week for the first two weeks. For A and B fleets, a parent is required to attend at least one of the two classes in the first week. THE ADULT PROGRAM — This program is for male and female Members over the age of 16. A series of (three) two-hour classes for beginners through advanced beginners will be offered on Saturday mornings during the Summer Season. Adults will have the opportunity to learn and improve their basic sailing skills. Contact the sailing office for more information at 570-646-LAKE. 61
