Current 2013 Dues of $20 are required to attend any "On the Water" Events.
The Dues must be on file in our office. Sailors may be "Bumped Off" Sailing Events if they are not Current for Dues. It is unfair to expect boat owners that are holding events to collect money, make change, etc. as you come aboard, and then relay the (often wet & illegible) Dues to me. It is also possible that they are not allowed to collect Dues at the Marina where they keep their boat.
You Cannot RSVP for this "Event". Once your 2013 Dues have been received, I will add you to this list of Sailors that are current. Members who are Current with their 2013 Dues will have the title "Sailor" added to their Name
Dues are used to pay for administrative costs, events and improved sailing opportunities for the club. We are required to show at least some profit by the IRS for the next 3 years or endanger our ability to write off operating expenses.
A Few Examples of our Costs include;
MN Sales Tax
Bookkeeping and Accounting Labor
Dues may be paid online through PayPal or you can send a check. Checks are sometimes deposited only one or two times a month. Mail your check to:
