Default RE: " Club Dues" what do you pay per year

This topic gets revisited about once a year. In 2005 I made a spreadsheet of the responses, plus information from as many club websites as I could find. There were 28 responses, ranging from annual dues of:

Free (Weak Signals) (but no students, and you have to work the Toledo Show)

to

$300 (nonvoting membership in RC world in Orlando, where a voting membership is thousands.)

The average from my little survey was $60.11/year, the median was $36.

Five of the 28 in my list had annual dues in excess of $95.

Some clubs require "initiation" fees, or "one-time joining" fees from $20 to $150. Some clubs offered "Family" memberships at the same annual fee as (or a slightly higher fee than) the individual membership.

One club was buying the property. Another club had very low dues, and flew on public land.

Best wishes,
Dave Olson
