Is $30 membership worth it?

One of the biggest benefits to being a member is that you receive a reduced price on a new mast. Paul Latour has graciously put together a system and means of purchasing a new mast. To receive the discount, you must be a current member, and also have been a member the preceding year. The discount is $300. Following is a report from our Secretary/Treasurer on the status of the mast blanks:

mastblanks213

This February 2013 photo documents over half of the mast blanks safely kept by JSI in St. Petersburg, FL.  Your  Secretary-Treasurer documented all thirty blanks stored by JSI for us.  Mast blanks cost $900 to persons who have been class members continuously for at least one and the previous year, and $1200 to others.   JSI charges separately to finish a blank (pricing varies by parts recycled and aging; I connect buyers with JSI for details.  

JSI also stores spreader blanks for us. The class owns two sets of finished painted spreaders stored by JSI available for $250+shipping.  Connect with Paul if you need these.

Just want you to know that your money and masts are well cared for and accountable by your class leaders.

Mail Paul or the class president if you have any questions.

Paul Latour, Secretary-Treasurer
