Far be it from me to discourage new memberships, but to all you new dudes out there I will say this: don't be in a super big hurry to join right away, get to know the club first. You're still welcome to come to meetings, join us for runs, come to our work parties, even come to our party parties. All are welcome, we'd love to have you, but make sure you know what club membership is all about.

I'll take a stab at that: In a nutsheel, that's the sharing of tech advice and discussion of Toyota trucks (that's a given). There's meeting a bunch of very like minded individuals and developing some really great friendships. There's also the promotion of the TLCA through hosting events, like our Rally and Cruise Moab. Of course there are deals on parts, inside scoops on what's for sale, special deals on trucks & parts within the club, etc. There's also a volunteer aspect, in addition to regular maintenance and cleanup projects on our two adopted trails there are often times other projects that we assist with that fall outside our "adopted" trails, for example the Hayman fire restoration we did a few years back, and perhaps helping the Go4's with Slaughterhouse Gulch later this year. Land use action, rehab efforts, and doing what you can to support continued access to public lands is more and more a big part of being in a 4x4 club. The money we make from our events goes right back to those efforts, and as a club we get to decide how to allocate those funds, then back it up with volunteer efforts. Tread Lightly, Stay on the Trail, Leave no Trace, are a big part of the club's core values. It's a fun thing to be a part of, and great feeling to know you're making a difference. It's also not for everyone.

We've never had a "what's club membership really like" discussion on our forum here, so on that I would encourage other members to pipe in. :)

Matt, I thought you were a member already. :thumb: And that's going to be a problem... for you. :D We all know you well enough now that we'll feel completely at ease abusing you when voting on your membership. You should anticipate much debate, with perhaps two or three votes ending in ties. We may need to form a committee to come to us with a recommendation concerning your membership. The folks who sit on the north side of the room may filibuster in order to delay the eventual final vote, but the south siders will call for a roll call vote, and the necessary 60% won't be able to prevent the general assembly from voting you in. However, several riders will be attached to this bill, the contents of which may be unpleasant and/or costly. I'm not at liberty to disclose these at this time.

FYI, the image Dave tried to post was a $100 bill. The web site from which he linked it has a policy of not allowing you to link their images (stealing bandwidth). Rather than simply placing a "Linking not allowed" image in its place, the site replaces the linked image with images of naked fat women and some other, really horrible images.

Bummer dude, dues are jumping up $25 as of the important meeting you missed last night!

As discussed last night, due to the increase in dues from our membership in United Four Wheel Drive Associations (http://www.ufwda.org/), dues will be increasing to $75/year, effective immediately.

Current members should read here (http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/showthread.php?t=4271) to determine whether they owe an additional $25 for 2007.

I am still against the increase but at least I am paid up until January. I guess prices go up and thats something that just happens. For the record, I am also very much against the proposed new policy that only paid members can participate in official RS runs! We have some very cool folks that tag along with us and thats gonna mess with future membership! :rant:

In all seriousness, I have brought this up a while back. Mandatory volunteer hours as part of membership should be a requirement. Other clubs do this and it is always a win win situation! The cowbell on newbies is an interesting thought....

Red_Chili
07-13-2007, 11:08 AM
Interesting thought. One volunteer event a year for all members, you're sayin'? Obviously out of town honorary or them kinda members would need a special dispensation.

I'll buy the cowbell.

Hulk
07-13-2007, 11:18 AM
We're a group of friends who share a hobby. We've done some pretty cool things together, and I'm proud to be a part. Once we start defining ourselves in other terms, I think we lose what makes it fun. I'm always open to discuss ideas, but my initial reaction to a requirement for volunteer hours is that we're moving away from keeping it light, fun, and attractive. This is a hobby that I do in the hours when I'm not working, spending time doing chores, etc. The primary requirement that I have is that I hang out with friends and have a good time. Once someone starts telling me that I'm required to do something, even if it's something that I would do anyway, I'm going to start wondering if I should quit.

OK, rant over. I do like the cowbell thing.

Red_Chili
07-13-2007, 11:32 AM
Yeah, but you're all pissy and stuff and probably a communist or something. :p:

Still, one volunteer event isn't much different than one regular event, is it?

I'm bringing a cowbell to the next meeting. I'm all jazzed over that.

I'll volunteer my time to any project as long as I don't have the city forcing me to spend my time doing something else. The only reason the Jenny Creek project didn't get a large showing the other day was because we were all busy. I recommend a volunteer sign up sheet at the top of a volunteer thread so we will know who should be there. That doesn't mean that those that sign up will show, sometimes things come up, but you would know ahead of time there may not be a huge following on that particular day.

Red_Chili
07-13-2007, 11:53 AM
Yeah, we actually had a decent number of folks confirm, but it was a convergence thing and everything fell through. No need for guilt though, Mike, good golly you've been dealt a full hand!!!!!

That alone should keep you free from threat of cowbell for some time to come.

07-13-2007, 01:07 PM
The primary requirement that I have is that I hang out with friends and have a good time.

So I gathered Wednesday night :lmao:

Honestly though, it seems like there are enough "volunteer" opportunities that if that was added it wouldn't be too difficult for most to meet that committment. I fully agree with being busy but sometimes it is that little "push" of a having a committment that helps folks clear up some time :thumb:. Especially if you have a significant other that is maybe somewhat less than understanding of the whole 4x4 bug.

I think it would also be fun to combine work days with wheeling. Many of us (at least me anyway) have never even been to the Jenny Creek area for instance. It would be fun/interesting to combine some work with a tour (couple hours?) of the area. Same would apply to Slaughterhouse I believe if that comes to fruition.

And don't forget about helping sell raffle tickets this year or helping at the Rally or maybe some vehicle work/wrench days?

Just my 2 cents worth to avoid the dreaded cowbell :hill:

I like what I'm hearing from both UB and Hulk...here's my take on this:


Being a corporate trainer, it's very tough to get truly engaged and interested people in mandatory trainings. The obligatory attendance (in a business environment) usually means people are sour about the whole thing, don't pay attention, etc. SO.....What do I do? Well, shoot, we make it fun - that takes on many different definitions; but at the end of the day people show up for more of my sessions week after week. My mantra is, "you want people to WANT to attend"...

Knowing the great group of folks in RS, whether personnally or not, there are some common traits. One of which is, in a very friendly manner, "picking on eachother, givin'em da' business, raggin' on" whatever you want to call it. That is something we can have fun with, without guilt. Those without the cowbell get to wear their Badge of Honor by taking it off. I think that's more in line with our club's culture. I mean, look at the fun we're having with Matt!!

Then again, maybe we'd just have a bunch of Cruisers clankin' cowbells around Metro Denver! :lmao:

The last thing we want to happen is fellow club members looking down on others because they haven't been able to volunteer, perhaps I'm already feeling that. It would be reeeaaal easy for some people to simply stop coming to meetings and let their membership expire because they are getting the guilt trip. Maybe that's what some folks want - weed out the folks who just want to make friends, talk shop, kick tires, and go wheelin'.

subzali
07-13-2007, 03:57 PM
Even though I'm not a member and am not allowed to have an opinion really yet, my take on it is similar...

Everybody is different. Different people use Rising Sun in different ways. Some people have lots of other things going on in their lives and are willing to donate $$ (what is it up to for me, a mandatory $150/year or something? :D) that in the end goes towards land use projects or other projects in the club. Then there are other people that don't have a whole lot going on outside of Rising Sun and Cruisers in general, so they put a lot more TIME along with some $$ into the effort. Some people are willing to be leaders, some people are willing to just come hang out. Some people just want to go 4-wheeling and use Rising Sun as a springboard to do that, in a way that's how I started with Rising Sun - just trying to go 4-wheeling because I couldn't usually make the meetings. And then some people just want to sit back and enjoy the show - I think this variety of approaches is what makes Rising Sun so great, it takes all types.

As far as the volunteering goes, I am very much for volunteer work and try to get out and do some whenever I can, but I am not sure about making it mandatory. I don't know what other clubs do, but I think there are some that just don't have the time to volunteer, and that's not what they're looking for in a club anyway. There could always be a financially connected opt-out for not volunteering, but then if you have a lot of money for a project and nobody to do the work, then what? It's a tough call.

One thing that does need to be balanced is having a variety of projects that people are interested in but not so many that we are spread thin as far as manpower goes to get them done.

The other thing that I think needs to be balanced is how exclusive the club wants to be. Toyota-specific for the most part makes us pretty exclusive already, turning other Toyota enthusiasts away by saying they aren't allowed on an official club run I'm not sure is the right answer to keeping riffraff out.

I'm not even sure what the benefit of trying to limit club runs to members is, it doesn't seem to me like we have huge groups of trucks on the trails on any given run anyway, at least not like Mile High Jeep Club or whatever. If people are hating on my J**P buddies I'm not sure what to say to that because they just want to 'wheel too, in the end what difference does it really make where the body, engine, axles, rubber, steel and plastic came from? Keeping them from joining and voting makes sense; that's the benefit of owning a Toyota 4x4.

I don't know, I kinda like Uncle Ben's mantra ST. FUAW!

That's an interesting idea on the opt out thing... mind you, I'm just letting my mind wander, none of this may work for the club and most definitely guilt is not the goal here (just making sure we put "giving back" hardwired into the club identity, along with fun, as a way to make sure we still CAN have places to have fun)...

I'm a member of Ben Lomond Gun Club. The membership fee is not too high, but part of what you sign up for is called a Work Bond. That is how they make sure everyone contributes. If you simply cannot spend the 8-16 hours of volunteer time at the ranch and range, you 'buy out' your work bond.

Seems to work pretty well. Whether you did your work bond or bought your work bond is no one's business. No guilt. Obviously I end up buying out my work bond every year since most of my volunteer time goes here!

Maybe we should start with Matt. Yeah, that's it... that's the ticket...
