How to Become a Way Out West Tent Member

If you are interested in joining, please stop by one of our meetings. See the meeting schedule below to find out when we will meet next. If you have any questions about membership, you'll find our postal and electronic mail addresses located here.


2017 Annual Dues

Dues allow you to attend our meetings and receive the printed version of our newsletter, at no additional cost. These dues are primarily used to cover the cost of renting our meeting hall and sending out mailings. There are other expenses, such as the flower fund, which your dues also help to support. Rates remain unchanged from last year. The dues schedule for 2016 is as follows:

Single....................$30.00 (per year)
Couple....................$45.00
(per year)
Family....................$50.00
(per year, with all members living at the same address)
Non-Members................$7.00
(per meeting)

Dues are collected from all members at the beginning of the year. If you join later in the year, the above rates will be pro-rated quarterly. For example, single membership is $30.00 for new members at the start of the year, $22.50 during the second quarter of the year, $15 after the third quarter of the year, and $7.50 during the last quarter of the year.

Meeting Reminders by E-mail

You may sign up for meeting reminders by checking the "Meeting Reminders" option when you sign our Guest Book. Simply fill in your name and e-mail address and check the meeting reminder box. Because members receive the printed newsletter in the mail several weeks before the meeting, this e-mail reminder is intended to be noting more than a last minute reminder. Announcements for Tuesday night meetings will be sent out the preceding Friday. If you require more advanced notice, please see the meeting schedule above and mark your calendars accordingly.
