General Rules

To stay at the Field House, you MUST be

  • a PSC member, OR
  • the holder of a Field House season pass, OR
  • the guest of a member or pass holder WHO IS ALSO STAYING AT THE HOUSE.
    (To avoid embarrassment, carry your Field House or PSC membership card when in the area).

    AS SOON AS YOU ARRIVE at the house, you MUST register and, unless you have a Field House membership, pay the fee.

    DO NOT smoke or use open flame in the Field House or outbuildings.

    STAY OFF the roof of the house and the outbuildings.

    DO NOT drive beyond the Field House. Do not drive off the roads, block any roads or use any firearms anywhere in the Field House valley area. Close and secure any gate on the Field House driveway.

    Please Do not store any PERSONAL BELONGINGS at the house BETWEEN visits or leave them in the first floor area DURING visits.

    If the bedrooms are full, you may sleep downstairs AT YOUR OWN RISK but do NOT complain or interfere when others use the downstairs rooms for their intended purposes.

    BE CONSIDERATE. For example, when others are trying to sleep, keep noise to a minimum (everywhere, but ESPECIALLY in the bedrooms).

    Be sure to follow the "Cleanup Checklist" and house "shutdown procedures" posted by the kitchen door.
