Recent Fees As Seen On The Site

Hey Folks!

I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying this awesome weather and not stuck behind a desk like myself!! :(

Some of you have noticed that we added a paid/unpaid notice on the RSVP section for signing up.  Please understand that this is not anything you pay in advance.  We only ask that you bring $1 when coming out to participate in an actual meetup.  If you only come out 2 or 3 times a year, then we obviously don't expect any money until you actually show up for the event/events.


I figured a break down of the reasons why is only proper.

1.  Our main organizer has to pay approx $80 in meetup fees every 6 months to keep the site running for us with the owners.

2.  When a ball bursts...which happens more often than you think, we have to pay out of pocket to buy new ones.

3.  I purchased the last set of bases and although they didnt last as long as we hoped, the total costs in that was $65.

I would like to get us some more bases this time even nicer.  We have been collecting dollars for about 5 meetups now.  The attendance has been high, yet I counted it this past Sunday, and with approx 100 people showing up for those meetups, we had only collected $54.25.


Anyways, enough about that!  I just wanted everyone to know why we are now asking for the $1 per meetup.  We aren't trying to make money off of you but break even!! ;)  GI JOE:  NOW YOU KNOW....AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!!  Yes I am a dork.
