Visit Mr. Bunny’s website:    http://schrothfiberglass.com/Easter.htm

Additional stuff: No pets, drones, fireworks, skateboards, unlicensed motorized vehicles, wheel toys on the patio, fires outside the designated areas, 500 ton cranes, tanks, jet fighters, flamethrowers, bazookas, extraterrestrials, farm animals, smoking in the boys’ room, smoking anywhere in any AYC building, fist fighting, sword fighting, distribution of political or pornographic materials (redundant), spitting on others, or teasing of our older members…which is about everybody.

The Club also very much wants everyone to understand zebra mussels are being spread all over Texas by boaters who inadvertently transport that invasive species. If there is any reason to believe ANY water from ANY lake is or has ever been in your boat, you must thoroughly sanitize it before entering or leaving our grounds. Please visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife website and educate yourself! The law requires steam cleaning for many vessels.
