RE: [robotrobot] Member or non-Member?

I feel, myself like other, are interested in robotics and seeing what is
happening out there. We like to watch other groups on the internet. I am a
little too far to attend your meetings as it is over an hour drive. I would
like to show up sometime but so far there have been conflicts in scheduling.
I have associates that are members of your club also and that is how I heard
about the club. I personally would not mind paying a little to stay around
as a possible attendee and for the access to the Meetup information and also
as a donation to the club.

Subject: [robotrobot] Member or non-Member?


According to Meetup, we have nearly 250 members, yet at any given meeting we
only have 15-20 people attend. Where are those 230 other people?

I've had several discussions with other club members about this. Several
members have said that it bothers them. 

In order to get "non-members" to drop off our list I am thinking of
requiring that each member pay a one time $1 "meetup fee" that will be
returned when he/she attends a meeting. 

In other words, you pay a buck, and you get the buck back when you show up. 

If you are a regular or semi-regular member who attends 3 or so meetings per
year or I know you personally, I will bypass this requirement.
