To the members of the Chicago Martial Arts Club,
I have been running the meetup group for almost three years now and plan on continuing for years to come. I have met and trained with a lot of great martial artists over these last three years and have made some lasting friendships as well.
However, costs being what they are, I am looking to add an equipment and site maintenance fee for participating members. Some of the wear and tear on my gear is getting to the point of replacement and the meetup site itself is a cost.
I am going to add a $5.00 per meetup fee to the scheduled meetups on the calendar. Or for regular participants, an annual fee of $40.00, that makes the meetups less than a $1.00 per meetup. This will allow me to maintain the site and replace equipment as needed. The group will remain free to join.
Lastly, we are looking for sponsors too. If you know of any business which might want to contribute to the site as a sponsor, send them my way. Sponsorship gets them listed on the site, as well as posting calendar events for them as advertisement. Fee will be $50.00 per year.
Please feel free to comment on this posting or reply back directly to me with any questions. Hope to see you soon!
