i am just waiting for the insurance quotes to come back but my commercial agent said its doable but i want to be able to keep it affordable for the members along with me and still have complete protection for my liabilities also its shame that is how you have to be that way.

Chris

sounds great, good luck. call the owners of Rausch Creek in Pa, maybe they will have some tips or hints on dealing with all the issues involved and can probably offer you some advice so nothing is overlooked. Good luck and please keep us posted on your progress.

Most states have laws stating that if you allow the public to use your land for recreational purpose without charge then you are protected from liability. Once you start charging its a whole different game.

A pig with lipstick is still a pig. I can't imagine this would hold up in court if it ever came down to it.

If you are living in the backwoods of upstate NY then there must be tens of thousands of acres of undeveloped land. Organize a club and start seeking out these landowners. Its a formula that is working well here in New England. The only way something is going to happen is if you make it happen.
