I think the $25 is completely fair. I pay $30 just to be in a mommy & child play group & this group is far better.

It's also been very hard for me to attend meet ups as I shoot for my business on weekends. I plan to attend some in 2012 though that is for sure!

As for the beer drinking...that doesn't bother me at all & I don't even drink alcohol. I think the emphasis makes everyone sound like a fun bunch rather than a bunch of old fuddy duddy's. Just my 2 cents so don't take it personally!

I haven?t had the opportunity yet to make a meetup. I do photo work on Saturdays, so it is difficult.
I am saddened to hear that much emphasis is placed on beer and drinking.  If this is true, I would not be interested either.
Thanks

Please remove my name from the membership roll also.  I live quite a distance from the Fair Hill area which makes attendance at many of the meetups difficult.  Also of late it seems the tenor of the group has changed from photography to beer drinking as that activity seems to be incorporated in each meetup.  I had thought this was a photography group, not a beer drinking group.

Sorry to say I will be canceling my membership also.  Since I do not live in the Elkton area it is not feasible at this time for me to remain in the group.  I will miss you and your photos.
God Bless,

Hello All,

 

After discussions with Parsh and Kenny, it has been decided that the dues for the Fairhill Meetup Group will increase for 2012.  Unlike most things for which we fork over our hard earned money, the dues for this group will net you a very nice return.

 

In addition to learning opportunities throughout the year, the increased funds will be used to provide for some fun for this great group of photographers.  Collecting dues will also enable us to not charge for our summer get together(July/August) and holiday party(December).

 

The 2012 membership dues will be $25.  These dues can be paid using Paypal by sending the payment to:

[address removed]

 

If you are unable to use Paypal payment can be sent to me at:

 

Fairhill Meetup

c/o Robert Badolato

849 Elk Mills Rd.

Oxford, PA 19363

(make check payable to Robert Badolato/Fairhill Meetup).

 

Please make sure to include a note along with your payment so that we can be sure to properly apply the payment to the correct person.

 

Anyone with a hardship that cannot afford this amount, please let us know.  We recognize for some that times are hard and do not wish to cause anyone stress over this increase.

 

We are also looking to start a Fairhill Photography Newsletter.  Anyone that would like to contribute their time and talents to this endeavor, please let us know.  We would like to tap into the vast and diverse skill set of our members to make this a fun and informative effort.

 

Lastly, since our group has grown to a pretty significant size, we will be looking for business sponsors that can provide us with discounts for our members.  If you have a business that you would like us to target, please let us know.

 

Thanks to all of you for helping to make this Meetup a place to learn and to gather with good friends.
