Guest Policies 

Guidelines for Members who wish to bring guests to events:

  •  HTSC events are restricted to adults 18 years or older except for racing crews on race days.
  • Guests who wish to attend an event must always be accompanied by a member – there is no exception to this rule.
  • Guests are allowed to attend two events during a season including Stand Ups, unless they are participating in a race, or have submitted a membership application that has been posted by the Executive Committee. If you are bringing a guest to a Stand Up you must inform the House Committee Chair, sign your guest in at the Club House and introduce your guests during the evening. During the busy season you may be asked to bring an appetizer to the event.
  • During February and March due to space limitations, there may be a need to restrict the total number of guests. Please check with the House Committee Chair, during these months.
Member Responsibilities - Saturday Evening Stand Ups

Info from the House Committee 

Saturday night stand-ups and post-race parties held during the season are BYOB and typically run from 5:30 -7:30 or at a posted time. Occasionally special events during a stand-up, such as a hosted wine tasting that may request you to register for the stand-up event.

Members are expected to host one stand-up event per season. The House Committee posts a sign-up sheet in the Club House, and this can also be accomplished by emailing the House Committee Chair Kim Stoltz or signing up on the website to confirm a date.  

The House Committee Chair will provide instructions for what is involved to host a Stand Up,  but typically 2-4 couples will work together to host one evening that includes setup and opening up the Club House, cleanup, providing ice, and buying or making an assortment of appetizers for up to 60 members. If you are a member in season in Hope Town and have attended a Stand Up, you have an obligation to host one Stand Up per season.  The House Committee Chair has authority to assign a fee to any member who is either unable, or unwilling to host a Stand Up but attends  a Stand Up during the season.

The Clubhouse may be rented for a fee for private parties. Arrangements should be made with the House Committee Chair to confirm a date, number of guest and the fee.

The HTSC offers very successful social functions only when members are willing to volunteer their time to help host or organize an event. Please contact the House Chair if you would like to help ensure continued successful events - such as the Ladies and Men's Luncheon in February, Spring Picnic, Commodore's Dinner in March and Club Ball.
