I have no problems with dues, although I will miss our dinners, I know I can get something before I come.  A change is nice, I like Remember When, so we shall see how it works.  Thanks for taking care of this.  Linda

Hi Ladies,

I've just done the annual purge of inactive members, so we are down to 27 people at the moment, with about 14 regulars.  Having done that, I want to let you know about a few things I've decided to change for the upcoming year.

  • Dinner will no longer be served at our regular Friday night crops.  As a result, there will be no charge for meetings held at the church.
  • I will continue to cater lunch for crops held at Hearts-n-Crafts.  Unless or until prices change, the crop ($10) and catering ($15) costs for the 12-hour event remains at $25.
  • As most of you know, Meet-up.com charges website maintenance fees of $154 per year.  I had been allocating a portion of the monthly dinner money toward this expense.  With the elimination of catering, however, we'll have to take another tact.  So, effective immediately, a flat $10 per year per member will be assessed instead.  I'm appointing our fearless Assistant Organizer, Jackie Hyde, to the position of treasurer responsible for collecting and maintaining dues records.  The $10 charge is payable per calendar year and will be collected at the first meeting a member attends during the year.  Any monies collected over and above what is required to run the site will be expended on refreshments or prizes or other perks solely benefiting our members at meet-up events.   I have updated our meet-up information page to reflect this adjustment.  I hope the implementation of dues will not dissuade you from participating, but I will not be offended if you choose to drop your membership.
  • To mix it up a bit, our Friday, March 8 meeting will NOT be held at the Church as currently posted.  (After I finish this note I will head over to our site and make some changes to that meeting page.)    Instead I've made a reservation at "Remember When" Scrapbooking Store in Valencia.   If you've been there, you know that they have several areas sectioned off called "patios", and our group has a patio reserved that can accommodate 16 people.  It's a large store with lots of die cutting machines as I recall.  The only disadvantage I can think of is that it's a huge industrial building without heating or air conditioning.  Depending upon the outside temperature, it's possible to either freeze or cook.  I'll keep an eye on the weather and advise you whether to bring a sweater or wear shorts!  All kidding aside, I've cropped there once or twice and was perfectly comfortable.  The store's crop fee is $5 per person, and we have the space from 3:00 p.m. until Midnight.  Bring your own dinner, hop over to one of the local eateries, or take advantage of the many delivery menus the store maintains.  We'll see how this works out.  For those of you who have already RSVP'd for March at the Church, please do me a favor and update your RSVP if this change of venue does not work for you.  I promised to give the store a firm number.  I realize that Friday night traffic is a consideration, especially if you are not heading up at the early 3:00 p.m. start time.  Again, this is just an experiment and we'll see where it takes us.

As always, I appreciate your feedback.

Regards,

Kathy
