Each January marks the time for our annual Club dues payment for the year. This year we look to have all the members paid by February train show in Estes Park President's day weekend. As of today, we still have about a quarter of the members who have not paid their dues yet. If you haven't please make it a point to do so soon.
To encourage payments we are strictly enforcing a "No Pay, No Play" policy at shows this year. If you have any questions about the dues or need to setup a payment structure please work directly with Bill Nagel our Treasurer.
