RULE BOOK CHANGES


From time to time, the Board of Directors will approve certain
changes/additions/deletions to our present Rule Book. The
following changes were approved at or prior to the September
2009 board meeting:

Camping & Registration:


Page 4, Section1-E: Add this EXEMPTION (regarding
guest fee): Upon Owner’s request, an exemption to the current
guest fee will be implemented at the Gatehouse for guests who
visit Ranch Owners for a short period of time (not to exceed 3
hours in a 7-day period). Guest is required to pay guest fee
when sigining in. Upon guest exiting the Ranch within the 3-hour
limitation from the time of arrival, guest fee will be refunded. No
ATV registrations are allowed for guests using this exemption.
Each visit under this exemption will count toward the limitations
of guest visits for the calendar year (See Section1.C & D).

Page 4, Section 1-F. (Addition to present rule) Owner is


not allowed to reserve a pad for a guest prior to arrival (See
Section 3.H.) Upon arrival of a guest, owner must be present
and state what type of guest non-owners are and length of stay.
(See definitions and limitations in above).

Page 5, NON-OWNER CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT:


Step 1: (Addition to present rule): Sponsoring Owner/Associate
must be registered on the Ranch and present at the Gatehouse
for registration of a Non-Owner. Owner must remain registered
and on the Ranch at all times a Non-Owner guest is on the
Ranch (No Exceptions). Owner must state what type of guest
non-owner is and length of non-owner’s stay (See definitions and
limitations in Section 1.)

Fishing Rules:
Page 11, Section 7-B – In the first sentence, the
wording is changed as follows: remove “the east side” and
replace with “25 yards east” of Fogey Hollow Crossing.
Page 11 – Section 7- E - In the second sentence, add
“25 yards below” handicapped dock upstream is prohibited.
Page 12 –Section 7-L – Change August fishing start
time to 6:30 a.m.
Page 12, Section 7-M (Catch & Release Program):
should be removed and replaced with the following:
M. Catch & Release Program:
STOCKED AREA: ONLY ARTIFICIAL LURES AND FLIES WITH
BARBLESS HOOKS MAY BE USED (NO NATURAL or SCENTED
BAIT ALLOWED). Catch and release is allowed EXCEPT 25 yards
down and 25 yards upstream from Fogey Hollow Crossing (NO
FISHING allowed in this area, at any time). Stringers are not
allowed and all fish must be released (no exceptions).
NON-STOCKED AREA: 25 yards down from Fogey Hollow to the
property line, fisherman may keep one (1) fish below the tubes per
day as long as it exceeds eighteen (18) inches in length. This
allows for keeping a “Trophy Fish”. All other Catch and Release
rules apply.

Vehicular Safety:
Page 13, Section 10. Add the following sentences:
“Speed limits are posted throughout the Ranch Complex and
are enforced. In cases where speed limits are not apparent,
the following will apply.”
Page 14, Section 10: Add the following sentence
AFTER SPEED LIMIT CHART: “Passing of vehicles is
prohibited unless the slower vehicle has pulled to the side of
the road and has stopped.”
