  • Excursions are free of charge to Association members, $5 required from non-members, in addition to meal charge.  Excursions are cancelled if weather is inclement.
  • Meal charge after excursion in private homes :  $10 each, member and guest, to defray cost of hosting the group.  In a restaurant setting, each is reponsible for paying his own meal and beverage.
  • Because lunching in a private home has become so popular, and the work involved for the host is substantial, few homes can accomodate large groups.  This, therefore, is the reason that we propose lunch in the village occasionally.
  • Please be kind enough to make reservations for lunch in a private home, since space may be limited.  Also, in the case of cancellations, please let your host know at least 2 days in advance, failing which you will be required to pay your host.  If you’re not able to attend, perhaps others could take your place.
