(I know the hotel discount, reg discount..blah,blah) I still think it should be open to all. That's just me.

For the link challenged...

I have a question! So in order to "Win" anything from the "MCA" you have to be a member correct? So When I register both my cars for Carlisle and they ask me if I belong to a club and I put down MCA to Help you guys win the "Biggest Club" trophy what do I get out of that? Just a question as I thought If I put you down as my club, My car should be able to be judged without being a member! sounds fair to me

$5.00 discount per show field registration for putting down that you are with the Club. IN your case $10.00 cash money.

Fair question Eric... First, Norm's point is absolutely valid - you already saved $10 if you took advantage of the club-only discounted advance registration. Several things, like this Forum and the IMON list, we make available to everyone even though it is paid for by annual membership dues. It's the PBS approach to funding - it works - no plan to change it.
The MCA Carlisle awards cost about $500, which is largely paid for by annual membership dues. Here, it just made sense to make this a member benefit. After all, we have to demonstrate value to membership or people won't renew and the whole cookie starts to crumble. Before making this decision, we polled several other clubs, and without exception, every single one requires membership to be eligible for any club awards they give out.
So why the sudden interest in the car judging awards? I thought you told us a couple months back that you had no interest!!!

Ok, that seems Very Fair!!!! I am ok with that!
I am asking because Taryn's car should be ready and will look nice as I am sure others will be!! so I just thought if it looks(as nice as I hope it does) good it'd be a shame if she got not recognition for it. I will join again, if just only for using the bandwidth on this forum!(as you can see from my post count! LOL) You know how I feel about certain people, so I'm just telling myself to ignore them and join anyway.
next question...how much is it again for me and Taryn??
