Thanks for the plug.

As far as the magazine, I really don't want to sell magazines, rather I want to increase membership so I can give them the magazines.

And your members pay to be part of your organization correct? So why do you think its right to trawl for membership on this site (which is 100% non profit making and funded by its members) in order to fund yours?

Yes, Steve is still active as our Land Use Director. He still takes care of the government side of things.

I became president last March and have focused on foundational areas, like a new website, the magazine, event insurance, event planning, cleanups.

We have gone from just Steve basically to having 6 very active volunteers with more to come, hopefully.

Yes, our members pay $20 dollars per year for an individual and 50 dollars for a club. If things go as planned, we will have event insurance that our member clubs can purchase for $200 to have as many event per year as they like, and be insured.

Our association is non-profit as well and we exist solely to lobby for the rights of 4 wheelers in this province. We fight for public access to public land.

The reason I came here is to let the wheelers here know what we are up to.

So if you pick up 100 members from here what sort of donation will you be making to this free web site from the $2000 you would have trawled from here?

If I sign up members in the pub, should the pub get a cut?

Seriously, If we sign up 100 members from here, I'll personally donate $200 in beer.
