Club Memberships Dues Increase

After much discussion at the February board and membership meetings it was decided and voted by the members to increase our yearly membership dues from $24.00 a year to $36.00 starting in March .  The main reason for this decision was that if we kept the dues at their current rate the club would be in a deficit state by the end of the year.
