That is until Rye Golf Club was warned by Rye City corporation counsel about the liabilities of Rye citizens using city property to sled. Apparently the club has been telling sledders to beat it.
Thanks to Rye Councilman Joe Sack for raising the flag on this one at last week's council meeting because apparently sledding is now banned at Rye Golf Club. Sack has asked for an explantion from counsel at the next meeting. "(Sledding) is a tradition that has been going on years and years in Rye," said Sack.
So kids are getting hit by cars in our streets and now we expend energy banning them from sledding?
Really? After sledding what next? What about golfers swinging those menacing metal clubs? Someone call the city attorney…
What do you think of Rye Golf Club's ban on sledding? Leave a comment below.
