Required behavior of all those entering these grounds:
- All ranks shall be left outside; similarly, hats — and particularly swords — are not to be carried beyond the Reception Hall.
- Gentlemens’ shirts shall cover their shoulders and be worn unless in the manmade lagoon or beach.
- Orders of procedure and haughtiness shall be left at the doors.
- Be merry, but neither spoil nor break anything.
- Be seated, stand or walk, as best please you, but at all times be respectful of others over partisanship shall be saved for Capitol Hill and other such fitting locals.
- Speak with moderation and not too loudly so that others have not an earache or headache.
- Argue without anger, discuss with passion, but never aim to have the last word.
- Do not sigh or yawn, neither bore nor fatigue others.
- Agree to partake in any innocent entertainment suggested by others.
- Eat well of good things, but drink in relative moderation so that each should be able always to find his legs on leaving these doors.
- Resist counting of lard, butter, cream and salt — it makes no matter as you are surely to eat it all regardless of its make.
- You are guest in our private abode. What goes in one ear should go out the other before departing our residence.
- The last guest should not feel obligated to stay longer than the person who just departed.
- Upon waiting for your Uber, horse or transport, do not regale our sleeping neighbors with your reflections of the day.
- Electronic carts shall be driven with care and never on the beach. Simple four seaters are embarrassing for all involved, do not park them nearby.
