Needs a location
Taking the lead from a talented member of our organizing group, I am opening up a way for members to donate and help towards the maintenance of Trails and Ales.
I run this group entirely out of pocket, as do any founding organizers on meetup and I want to be clear that I do not ask for members to pay dues to join or to stay a member and never will. Membership is entirely free and always will be.
This is simply a voluntary way to help defray group expenses (primarily the ongoing group dues for meetup), and help with our effort to meet our shortfall on our minimum order for our t-shirts (and it would also be nice to have some in stock so that we can have some on hand for those interested in the future). Please be clear that this is an entirely voluntary contribution and all money goes back into the group. You are not obliged, and should never feel obliged to make a donation.
So If Trails and Ales is something that you have enjoy, are enjoying, and look forward to enjoying, then please consider the $3.00 donation (the average cost of a beer minus Paypal's cut) to help us maintain for the long run... Of course, you are welcome to contribute more, and we appreciate that, that is entirely up to you.
See you on the trail or at the ale
