Standing Rule 8:
Any member who violates, or permits his guest to violate any provision of the By-Laws, the Standing Rules or any rule adopted by members in meeting assembled, shall be deemed guilty of misconduct upon Corporation property, and such violation shall render him liable to expulsion, as provided by the By-Laws.

In the event a member holding a large party or camping event violates a written rule regarding parties, or a standing rule, or a bylaw, and the Large Party Supervisor and the President determine that such violation does not warrant expulsion, then they may suspend that member's large party/camping privileges for up to two years.
