MAJOR CHANGES TO
CLOUDBUSTERS MODEL AIRPLANE CLUB FOR 2008 & FORWARD
with the 2008 calendar year the Cloudbusters Model Airplane Club meeting
schedule will be changed from the current alternate Tuesday meetings to one
monthly meeting. The club meetings in 2008 will be held on the third Tuesday of
the month excluding June, July and August. If by some chance the third Tuesday
is a holiday the sitting officers will select another date to be published in
advance. This change will lighten our meeting schedule and also allow members to
accept an officer nomination while committing to a maximum of no more than nine
Tuesdays per year.
major changes, other than the meeting nights, that will be effective in 2008 is
officer nominations will now be held during the October meeting with
officer elections being held during the November meeting. Perpetual award
nominations will be due by the beginning of the November meeting.
with regrets that we also have to announce an increase in the club dues
effective with the 2008 calendar year. The increase will be from the old Open
and Senior membership fee of $10.00 to a new Open and Senior membership fee of
$15.00. Junior members dues will increase to $12.00 with a newsletter and remain
$3.00 without a newsletter.
Cloudbusters dues have not been raised in over 40 years and inflation (especially
for the newsletter printing and postage) along with member attrition from
our older group of members have caused us to fall further and further into the
hole. Today we would be operating in the red if not for some cash donations from
anonymous members. As a club we cannot continue to operate on donations and
increase will not affect members who prepaid their 2008 dues with their 2007
membership until they renew again for 2009. The mail label shows the year paid
through. It will be colored red on the last issue of paid membership.
If you question whether or not you fall into this group of prepaid
members please contact Cloudbuster Treasurer Dan Olah at firstname.lastname@example.org
and Dan will verify your current membership status.
