Started as a joke back in the 70s (a yacht club in the middle of a desert?), the club is a social gathering place with music, a bar&grill, and a motel.
Cost to join is $30 per person. Any visitors to the club have the option of joining, and with their membership they receive a t-shirt, a flag, signed certificates for framing, and official membership cards. There is one particular perk, though, that ends up being the best of the bunch: reciprocity, which MAY (not guaranteed) allow entry into other real yacht clubs.
