If you paid your 2014 dues- please ignore this Meetup. This event details are for admin purposes only. If you are not sure, you can check under your name.
For all others:
This event is for purposes of a notice only. There is NO actual meeting attached to this event. The "PLACE" is simply for a mailing address. But you will need to RSVP "Yes" that you intend to remain a member of this website. Then pay your Dues, for upcoming year 2014 by Dec 1st, and notify me that you ACCEPT the Waiver. Make any checks payable to Al Chance Services LLC.
As discussed previously, we have Member Dues of $10.00 per calendar year. The dues go to pay for this website and other administrative costs. Dues are for membership in our club, whether or not you are a website member, an email list member or "off-website" member. Dues are non-refundable. The first calendar year is pro-rated by month. If there is an overage of Dues revenues collected over expenses, a refund or offset to next year's Dues, or some type of refund will be issued to all members of record at the end of each year. This is not a profit making activity.
Dues are not payable for new members until they are members for at least 2 months, whether or not they participate in an event, (excluding months wherein they were "Wait-Listed").
All "offsite" members will be sent a Liability Waiver which will be required to be signed and returned (in hard copy) to remain a member. All website members and email members will need to read the Waiver under "Pages" button above, and respond by email, in the affirmative, that they accept the Waiver. Sending Dues payment without the Waiver acceptance will lead to your drop in Membership, and return of your payment.
Those who are family members and want to save $10 may remain as a sole (single) member, in a single, joint or double name, and will use the "+1" feature for RSVPs when their spouse will attend an event.
The same prior rules will continue apply to our Meetup.com website membership; the website is for members who use it. Those who do not record their RSVPs within a reasonable period of time (considered minimal activity for site membership inclusion) will be removed to the email list. The Organizer needs the site use to plan events, administrate the club activities, and prevent those from parking here as a social media type advertisement.
All members I speak to agree that 83 cents per month is a good value for all the culture, food and good times and good friendships we form here. I believe those who participate regularly feel they are a part of something special - perhaps an extended "famiglia." Al & Maria certainly do.
For your convenience, mail a check payable to Al Chance Services LLC, or pay cash when you next see Al or Maria. Those who do not pay by Dec 1st of each year will be dropped from our rolls as I do not want to be asking for money during Christmas Season.
