VMSC Party Procedure

The Vineyard Mountain Swim Club party policy is intended to allow members to host small birthday parties and gatherings that would otherwise exceed the allowable guest limits and not impinge on the enjoyment of, or access to, the pool by other members.  Our pool is not large enough to accommodate large groups and there is no life guard on duty.  Sponsoring member is responsible for providing adequate supervision.

If you wish to host a party at the Vineyard Mountain Swim Club, you must adhere to the following procedures:

Note: there are not "private" parties, other members may be present at the time of a scheduled party.
