RE: [FlagstaffSingles] Meet up dues

Hi Miriam and Activity Group Members, Thank you for your efforts to save our group!!! I am considering being the organizer but would need lots of help from others as I do not wish to do it all. I don't "herd cats" very well, so I probably wouldn't be near as good as Gary! Anyone else want to help or step up????? Perhaps many of us did not realize that the money for the meet up goes to pay dues...how about we all throw some money in the hat to help reimburse Miriam and keep our group going??? She was generous above and beyond... I am a sales person by trade so I have no problem asking for money....ha! ha! What say you guys???? Cheers,Cynthia

I tried to post a meetup and I was told the group no longer had an organizer, then I saw Martin's plea for dues. My schedule hasn't allowed me to attend many FAG events, but I keep trying to. It would be sad if the group disappeared because there wasn't funding to support the meetup platform. It is often very difficult to get people to pay up for these sort of things - no one wants to ask and the reality is - no one really wants to give - especially for a social group. (I've suggested switching the Flagstaff Outdoors Group to meetup- and no one is interested in support the $144 a year cost it has - so we just stick with the low profile, but free Yahoo! groups.) I personally feel that Meetup's fees are too high and they should probably charge based on members or usage, but they don't and it seems to be a preferred on-line organization platform for many.
I decided to chip in $27 to keep the group going for 3 more months. If ever member did this once, you could keep the group going for a while. Meetup offered me a one time 40% discount on the regular fee, so it was only $27. Anyway, just a thought. That type of payment shouldn't fall on one person.
The trip I was trying to post was a three day weekend campout at the North Rim on September 7,8, 9. I think it is stored in the Calendar, but it won't post to the group for some reason. If anyone is interested, please look into it - Beautiful views and a great bike trail plus no park entrance fee.
Here's to three more months of activities.
