Clubhouse Rules

 Using Clubhouse Premises

  • Guests must be accompanied by an adult resident. Residents are responsible for the conduct of their guests, and for the proper use of all equipment, including the pool table and exercise equipment. Residents assume responsibility for any property damage caused by their guests.

  • Children under the age of 15 are not allowed in the clubhouse without the supervision of a resident at least 18 years of age.

  • Consumption of alcoholic beverages by persons less than 21 years of age is not permitted.

  • Smoking is not permitted in any area of the clubhouse, shop, or pool.

  • Residents have first priority in the use of all recreational equipment.

  • Kitchen equipment, such as coffeemakers, urns, dishes, silverware, etc., is not to be removed from the clubhouse. Chairs and tables may be borrowed, subject to the following conditions:

  1. They must be checked out on the list posted in the exercise room, and must be checked back in when they are returned.

  2. They must be returned within 48 hours.

  • For safety and economy, any resident using the clubhouse who is the last to leave the premises shall be responsible for the following:

  1. Turning off the lights and all electrical appliances

  2. Checking and (if necessary) turning off the saunas

  3. Turning the thermostat down to 55 degrees

Private Parties

The clubhouse lounge and kitchen areas may be reserved by residents for private parties. (Note: The pool area may not be reserved). Reservations may only be made by residents 21 years and older, and are subject to the following requirements:

 

  •  The resident must enter the reservation on the clubhouse calendar.

  • A total of $100 must be given to the Clubhouse Chair, Bob Robins E-5 (1546), or in his absence, Steve Calkins C-3 (1520), at least seven days prior to the event. This deposit must be in the form of two separate checks, payable to “Noble Firs Homeowners Association” – one check for $25 to help defray the cost of heat, electricity, etc., and the other a $75 refundable damage deposit.

  • The $75 damage deposit shall be refunded provided that the premises have been properly cleaned and no damage has occurred. If the Executive Board determines that the premises were not properly cleaned, or that NFHA property has been damaged, the host resident will be contacted for resolution of the problem.

  • Should it become necessary for Noble Firs to arrange to correct problems, it will be at the host resident’s expense - costs will be deducted from the $75 damage deposit, and any costs in excess of $75 will be billed to the resident.

  • Charges are suspended if the clubhouse is used for a memorial service for a homeowner. However, setup, cleanup, and parking arrangements shall be the responsibility of the family, who shall also bear responsibility for any damage to NFHA property.

  • The clubhouse pantry key can be obtained from the chairperson of the Clubhouse Committee or a member of the Social Committee. It must be returned when cleanup is completed.

  • The clubhouse should be clean when you arrive for your activity. If it is not, please contact the chairperson of the Clubhouse Committee. The clubhouse must be clean when you leave it.

  • If the fireplace is used, ensure that the damper has been opened before lighting a fire, and that the fireplace screen is in place during use.

  • The clubhouse is a non-smoking facility – be sure to inform guests that smoking is not permitted in any area, including the restrooms and pool area.

  • The resident who reserves the facility shall be responsible for:

  1. The full cost of repairs of any damage

  2. All supplies needed (Note: NFHA  coffee, tea, sugar, cream, etc. may not be used for private parties)

  3. Cleaning the premises. Cleaning must be completed by noon of the day following the activity (Note: Social Committee organized events are to be cleaned up within 48 hours of the event completion). When the deposits are delivered to the chairperson of the Clubhouse Committee, the resident will receive a sheet listing the cleaning requirements, which shall include the following:

  • Washing, drying, and putting away all used dishes, silverware, and glassware.

  • Carefully washing and putting away all table coverings. (If laundering is required, the coverings should be taken home, cleaned, returned to the clubhouse, and stored in their proper place.)

  • Wiping clean all tables and counters.

  • Cleaning the dishwasher, range, refrigerator, coffee makers and urns.

  • Emptying trash containers (if used) into dry plastic bags, and depositing them in the dumpster.

  • Damp mopping the kitchen floor.

  • Ensuring that the bathrooms are left in a clean and sanitary condition.

  • Vacuuming the entire area used, and returning all furniture, exercise equipment, tables, folding chairs, and the pool table plywood coverings to their original locations or proper storage place.

  • Removing all food items. (Note – Items labeled with your name and the date may be stored in the refrigerator for up to two days. Anything left beyond that will be removed and disposed of.)

  • Performing security and safety checks, including ensuring that all range burners, coffeemakers, and water taps have been turned off, all lights (except the florescent light above the kitchen sink) have been turned off, and all outside doors are locked.

  • The resident organizing a private party must make their own arrangements, at their own expense, for any assistance required. The caretaker is not obliged to perform services for individual residents. If the caretaker does agree to perform any service, it must not interfere with his regular duties or working hours, and any compensation for his time shall be by arrangement with the resident.

  • Those reserving the clubhouse are responsible for posting easily-read notices on each exterior door on the day of the event, announcing that the clubhouse facilities have been reserved for that date.
