Central Office Report
As reported in the last Cannon Ball, all applications have been mailed and the web site has removed all ads that have not been paid for 2016. We have 75 captains who have not renewed for 2016.
We are now way past the cut off date for renewing memberships for the 2016 season without having to take a pre-renewal drug test. If you submit a membership application at this time, you must include $55.00 for your now required pre-renewal drug test along with your annual membership fee. If you’re really in a pinch you may apply online, but you must check the appropriate membership box AND the drug test box. In this circumstance if you do not check both a membership category AND the drug test box, the transaction will not be successfully processed.
Everyone: Please check your web listing carefully for typographical errors. I manually enter the information written on the applications and some handwritten applications are very hard to read – plus the fact I’m human and I do make mistakes.
