Our wonderful members have organized several clubs within the resort.  We hope one meets your interests!

Apple Computer Club, the largest and most active Apple user's club anywhere on the East Coast, meets twice a month year-round, and it's the place where owners and users of any and all of the amazing products made by Apple gather to learn, share, discuss, discover and get advice and help.  At each of the Club's hour-long meetings, we present a selection of topics designed to inform, entertain and educate all levels of Apple users, from total noobies to confident beginners to seasoned nerds. We keep it fun, informative, and free-wheeling, and you'll always something you didn't know no matter how long you've been an Apple fan.  Check out the Club's Web site at coveappleclub.com for the meeting schedule and more information.

BINGO is played every Tuesday at 6:30 PM in the Clubhouse.  Seats fill up fast, so arrive early.

Camera Club meets the 2nd Sunday of each month at 10:00 am in the Clubhouse. The format of the meeting is education and discussion of photography skills, often followed by a photoshoot. The camera club has two photo shows a year where both skilled photo judges and Cove Members get to evaluate their work. The Camera Club also sets up a portable studio with lights and backdrops at special events like New Year's Eve, the Halloween Party, and the Hawaiian Luau to take pictures of the guests.  Guests & new members are always welcome. 

Cornhole Club (called Bags in some parts of the U.S.) holds a double elimination FUN tournament with partners chosen by blind draw.  We meet on Sunday afternoons at the Pavilion next to Cheeks at 1:30 pm for practice and sign-up. Tournament play starts at 2:00 pm.  There is no entry fee.  Newcomers are welcome.  The concept is for players to toss bags into a 6-inch hole located on a 2-foot by 4-foot board.  Each player is guaranteed to play at least two games and more if continuing to win.

Coupon Clippers collect, cut, and ship coupons to military bases so families can cut expenses when shopping at base commissaries. Families have been able to stretch their income using these coupons. Right now we could use a few more "cutters". If anyone can spare two hours, we will be meeting on the first Thursday of each month from 1 PM to 3 PM. Bring scissors and meet us in the Clubhouse. 

Cove Players have been putting on an annual lip-sync show for decades.  The shows feature the performing talents of dozens of our members.  They rehearse for weeks and the results are worth it.  These shows always sell out both performances.  Have the acting bug?  Join the Cove Players.

Cove Singers is our own Glee Club!  They put together recitals and sing-alongs for holidays and fun.

Cribbage is played every Monday night at 6 pm in Scuttlebutts.  This is a casual double-elimination tournament.  It's free, fun and social, and the winner earns a $5 Cove Coin!
