New for this year, please MARK YOUR TREE STANDS with your name, phone number / email info so that any conflicts can be worked out between members. If you are OK or NOT OK with others going up in your stand, please mark that as well. Please remember that we share all of the land together, but we want to make sure everyone has ample room to not feel crowded.
We have the new combination locks on many of the gates. If they don’t lock easily, please don’t force them. The numbers must be on the correct combination to close.
