As was stated before! There will be 2 levels of membership. Membership implies that you're officially part of something. Don't you think saying that you don't want to be a part of the group because you can't go to events that you already don't go to is a little...silly? Let's not let emotions get carried away here. That's what I meant when I said nothing's going to change for you. I'm being realistic. I'm sorry if you were offended. Edit: Kari beat me to it. I don't think it's that hard to explain to people. It's not that complicated, and it keeps things fair to those people who are paying dues. Someone's interested in seeing what we're about, we tell them they're welcome to start posting, getting to know us, they can come to our next meeting or recreational outing, then if they're interested in getting fully involved, that we have dues of $4 a month that helps fund our bigger events and helps us buy supplies for the group.
