p. The use of sterno, candles, or any open flame within the common facilities is prohibited. (I added this on page 14 under “General Rules for STMA Common Facilities.”)

This is under F.1.b. under “Use of STMA Common Facilities”:

Use of any of these facilities for the conduct of a business or to generate income is prohibited. A group of property owners planning to use the facility for a specific type of activity exclusively for property owners, may bring in an instructor who has a business established outside of Sea Trail; the instructor may be entitled to receive compensation from the individual property owners participating in the activity.  Any paid vendor must be approved by management and carry both liability insurance and worker’s comp and provide proof of insurance with STMA named as an additional insured.

Examples of activities for which these facilities may not be reserved include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Political Meetings/Fundraisers, Activist Group Meetings/Activities;
  • Business meetings of any kind that involve the solicitation of business;
  • Meetings of legally registered organizations not established under STMA, whether for profit or not for profit, unless such meetings receive prior approval from the STMA Board of Directors;
  • Seminars or meetings for the sole purpose of generating commercial opportunity for the participants in the seminar/meeting.
c. The STMA Board of Directors reserves the right to deny reservation rights to any property owner for any event it determines in its sole discretion to be an event not within the intent and purpose of the existence of these common facilities.
d. Fundraisers are permitted as approved by the Board of Directors by recognized groups and committees.
Room reservations may only be made three months or less in advance by individuals or clubs.  The cost of repairs for any damages to common areas caused by a group will be charged to the individual who reserved the room for that group.
