No. Once the reservation fee has been paid you cannot transfer it to another party date or be reimbursed for the amount if your party is cancelled.
The balance of the party is required 30 days prior to the event, or the event will be cancelled.
That depends. If the party is cancelled 30 days or more prior to the date of the party, you will receive a full reimbursement of the party package. If you cancel your event less than 30 days prior to the event, you will not be reimbursed at all. The reservation fee is required to reserve your party and is not refundable.
The reservation fee cannot be transferred, however if you change the date of your party 30 days prior you may transfer the rental fee with an additional reservation fee.
The Fitness & Recreation Center provides bowling balls, game equipment (pool, ping pong, air hockey, foosball, etc.), and recreation balls if the gym has been reserved. Tennis shoes or soft- soled shoes may be substituted for bowling shoes. Flip flops and other open-toe shoes are prohibited in the bowling alley. Included in the party room (usually the Harbor room) are (8) 48” round tables, (48) chairs with (6) per table, and (3) 6’ x 30” tables. Set up in the University Room or Craft Room (special event) will be determined per event.
Each party receives 30 minutes before the party’s start time and 30 minutes after the end time. The Fitness & Recreation Center will be preparing for the next party so party attendees are not allowed to be in the party area during set up and clean up. A late fee of $50 will be charged for every 10 minutes after the party’s end time if party attendees do not clear the facility. Also, there will be a fine (determined by the Fitness & Recreation Center) for any damages done to the facility.
Leave the facility as you found it. This includes: taking out what you brought in, throwing all trash in the appropriate dispensers, and returning furniture to its original location.
Yes! The inflatable is a regular square-shaped bounce house recommended for children 10 and under. It can be added to the Basic package for an additional $50.
Parties that are during regular hours cannot exceed 50 people. If there is a chance your party will be larger than that number, you should schedule an after hours party. However, babies (newborns) and grandparents that will not be participating may be excluded in the head count as long as space in the party room is available. Our goal is to serve both our Fitness & Recreation members and your party guests effectively. Parties during regular hours are limited for your benefit. Reimbursements will not be given if the party count is less than expected.
A calendar request is made once the reservation fee ($50 for parties) has been received. Until payment has been made a reservation cannot be guaranteed. Our recommendation is that you pay the fee to reserve your date as soon as you know in order to ensure you get the preferred spot. Basic packages must be reserved at least one full week in advance.
