Rules & Procedures

These are the current rules and procedures for the Stoughton Conservation Club. Members are responsible for knowing them. Violations of rules and procedures is grounds for disciplinary action, which can range from warnings to expulsion for life. Ignorance of the rules is not a defense. Above all, our rules and procedures were created to foster safety. UNSAFE BEHAVIOR WILL NOT BE TOLERATED, and just because it is not stated in our Rules and Procedures does not mean it is not unsafe behavior. Use common sense and common courtesy.

Note to other clubs: we created this latest revision of the rules from our own rules and from those of other clubs posted on the Internet. It is in that spirit that we post our rules here. If you are another club and wish to use any part of our rules and procedures, please feel free. If you have any questions about them or wish a copy of them in another format, click on "Contact Us" in the navbar on the left side of the Homepage and let us know how we can help.

Want to Join?

Interested in becoming a member of the Stoughton Conservation Club?

Well here is how you do it. All prospective members must attend a mandatory orientation session. During the orientation, prospective members are informed of the Club’s resources, opportunities for recreation, and most importantly the rules and regulations.

After the orientation, prospective members fill out a membership application, access information card form and pay fees ($115.00). Currently the fees are $75.00 annual membership fee, and a one time $30.00 initiation and $10.00 access card fee.

Orientation sessions are given the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. "SHARP" in the "New Clubhouse". Late arrivals will not be admitted to the orientation.

New Clubhouse address is 918 Collins Road.

Dues

Presently, dues are $75 a year. A member’s immediate household family is considered part of that membership. They may use all the facilities but only when accompanied by the registered member. There is a $30 Initiation Fee for the first year, and $10 deposit for the magnetic key card that will give you access to the facilities whenever you want.

The Board has voted that spouses of members may purchase a second key card if they take the enrollment orientation. Members had requested such a set-up so Moms could take the kids to the facilities when Dad (usually the member of record) is at work. The same Superivision rules apply – an adult must be close enough to children to prevent accidents.

Rules, Regulations

Members may bring guests to use the Club facilities. ONLY 1 (ONE) GUEST PER REGISTERED MEMBER IS ALLOWED. This means exactly what it says. A member may not bring two, three, four or more guests. A member may only bring one. Period.

Security

A Conservation Club is a big responsibility. There’s safety issues, membership issues, leagues, buildings & grounds ... it just never ends. The thing we need the least is outsiders breaking in and using the facilities on off hours, damaging our facilties, or - worse yet - members purposely breaking the rules and risking the entire Club’s well being. It’s all happened, and more than once. That is why The Board installed a video surveilance system. Multiple cameras at multiple locations record all movement, all the time. So don’t bother breaking in or breaking rules. We’ll not only know who you are, but what you were wearing when you did it. Here the Board lays out the policy for the new security system and the committee overseeing it. We believe members in good standing won’t be bothered by the existance of the system, since a) they obey the rules, and b) our Committee/Board are the only ones who’ll see the tapes, and only if there’s an infraction reported.

OFFICIAL NOTICE: The Stoughton Conservation Club (SCC) depends on its members donating their time and energy to keep The Club moving forward. By doing so, SCC has been able to offer many sporting opportunities and services to its members that would not be available otherwise. In return, we expect our members to comply with the rules and regulations set to ensure the safety of our neighbors and ourselves. To help aid the enforcement of Club rules, we have installed security cameras on The Club’s premises. Following is The Club’s policy regarding security and discipline.

Stoughton Conservation Club’s Policy on Security and Discipline April 1, 2002

The committee for the security system will consist of a combination of both directors and/or officers from the board.

The committee should be advised of any noncompliant issues, the committee will act on case-by-case basis, to each of the complaints. It is up to the committee on the actions that will be taken, if any, for failure to comply.

The committee will advise the board of any actions deemed necessary to be taken. The board will have the final decision on the actions that are to be taken.

Each director/officer has the authority to contact individuals who are not following the rules set forth by this board, and the committee must be notified of any discussion that transpired, if any, for the sole purpose of record keeping.

Only the board will view the videos unless determined otherwise.
