Crooks of Gunnison the club will be accorded exclusive fishing privileges for a mile and a half along the stream, which Mr. and Mrs. Crooks control. Tents situated in a quiet grove, shady and inviting, and swings, hammocks and other similar devices will make the place as comfortable as possible.

Quoits, croquet, archery, and target shooting will also be provided.”
