YCCC Club Resource Information
- DUES AND MEMBERSHIP STUFF Dues are payable as of the April election meeting, which begins our club “contest year”. The YCCC has adopted a multi-tiered membership format as follows: Please note that payment of dues IS NOT a prerequisite for contributing scores to the Club aggregate, but IS for the various YCCC Awards Programs.
Full Member - $20 ($35/2 yr) (Eligible for YCCC awards programs and paper delivery of Club newsletter)
Full Member - $15 ($25/2 yr) (Eligible for YCCC awards programs and electronic “eButt” delivery of Club newsletter)
Note: To qualify for the 2-yr price, dues MUST be paid in advance. Dues already paid, or dues in arrears do not qualify.
Family Member - $0 (Grants full membership to all amateurs residing at one domicile on payment of one member's “Full Member” annual dues and entitlement to one Club Newsletter sent to one domicile or email address. All members of said family are eligible for YCCC awards programs.)
Student Member - $10 (Grants full membership to students at a reduced level. Eligible for YCCC awards programs and paper or electronic delivery of the Club Newsletter.)
Subscription - $** (A “friend of YCCC” - not a member but a possible candidate for future membership. Receives club newsletter only in paper or electronic form. Fee basis is $20 for overseas paper delivery, $15 for domestic paper delivery and $10 for electronic “Ebutt” delivery domestically or overseas.)
Club members who move out of club territory and so are not eligible to contribute to club aggregate scores automatically become subscribers. New members who join at the February meeting are credited with dues for the year beginning the following April. You can tell if you owe dues by either checking your ‘Butt mailing label or your entry in the online roster. Mail your dues to the club treasurer, Chet Slabinski, N8RA, 462 W Hill Road, New Hartford, CT 06057.
SCUTTLEBUTT ARTICLES should be sent to the Scuttlebutt editor, Steve Rodowicz N1SR, at firstname.lastname@example.org preferably in MS-Word or text file format. Other formats can be accommodated by arrangement. The deadline for each issue is the 10th of the preceding month.
Scuttlebutt Advertising: Nominal Business Card sized ad, $50 per year (6 appearances).
