Volleyball Meetup Dues

From: Bob M.
Sent on: Wednesday, April 24, 2013 5:06 PM

Folks, I'm going to start collecting VERY modest dues, $2/person per 6 months, to cover my costs in running this Meetup group.  The Meetup.com mothership charges me $72 per 6 months to maintain our web site here, and I think that's fair for the benefits we get from it.  But it's still $144 per year, so I hope you won't mind if I ask you to share that expense with me.

Looks like we have 174 members now, and I expect we may lose half or more that number -- people who signed up on a lark but who really don't have much interest in v-ball.  But for those of you who do recognize some value in this group, I'm sure $2 per 6 mos isn't going to break your bank.  I would guess I'll take in considerably more than the $144 per year that I pay for the web site, but I'll use the excess to continue bringing fresh ice to our summer groups (to keep our drinks cold), and if there's still a few dollars left over then we'll look into raffling off a volleyball or something.

I haven't set this up on the website yet, but thought I'd give it a whirl next week.  In the meantime, if anyone has any comments, questions, suggestions, or self-righteous indignation you'd like to share with me, I'll be happy to listen, or you can comment publicly on our Meetup message board.
