I wouldnt blink at mandatory club membership fees and raising the club fee to $50. (On top of the reg fee)
I know many of us belong to multiple clubs annually anyway....and it would force the freeloaders to put more money directly into the pot.
Think of what it costs to spend 2 days in Disneyland....and consider our trail use is unlimited. Its pennies in comparison. Best money I spend all year.
There may be a few "I only sled twice a year for ice fishing" folks that thinks its too much. Its not. The volunteer time and equipment cost of groomers and fuel is astronomical.
The money required to groom being there for the volunteers to use should be automatic and without question. Fundraisers are nice...but the only fair way is increasing the cost to riders....like it or not.
Your milage may vary.
