BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR – PLEASE OBSERVE THE 15 MPH SPEED LIMIT!

As some members have already noticed, the Club has added a significant amount of new base material to our range road, at considerable expense.  The primary reason for doing so was to mitigate dust from being blown onto our immediate neighbor’s property. The prevailing winds are west and north. Our neighbor lives to the southeast.  Please limit your speed to 15 mph.  The road will stay in better shape, it won’t get washboard, and we’ll be neighborly.  We do not want to have to detain drivers and invite them to appear before the Board to explain themselves.
THANK YOU!
