    I’m sure it’s been discussed in the past but, Eric, what are yours and the boards thoughts about creating a one-time payment level for a Lifetime Membership?

    I don't think it has been discussed before that I know of. I was in several clubs that years ago offered lifetime memberships and all phased them out. I would have no idea what a fair payment would be let alone how many would be interested. What is your experience with that option Mark? thanks, Eric

    I recall that SAOC tried it and regretted it, as it put a real damper on dues in the long run.

    I have been a long time Sunbeam owner, since 1983, but not a regular member/participant. It tends to be an afterthought TBH. I could see a select few long term owners who might make a larger upfront commitment and then feel more vested long term. This group would likely still ‘donate’ annually but may see other benefits. The influx of investment may help start a long term project. Just a thought.
