I know my way around a computer and it's functions well. Because I work with them for a living and have been brought up on them since the first main frames in the late 60's. But I even find young people that write me and ask what a PDF is. The rest print my book out.
If you make the SCR electronic only you will also loose membership I feel. I like have a nice collection of boos and SCRs. Print isn't o and low tech. It's a way of life. Even Captain Pichard sits down to a nice book in Star Trek. I sincerely hope that's the case in our distant future.

The ideas that are starting to show up all sound good.

I have an idea for a raffle that would create an ambassadorship exchange for our members.
Members could purchase raffles tickets throughout the year and the winner can win an expense-free trip to a European submarine regatta and the 2nd place winner a trip to an American regatta.The European winner would of course travel to America and American winners go to Europe.This would bring about good exchange of friendship and knowledge of rc submarines.This would also do more for membership registrations than anything else!
If 640 members bought one raffle ticket at $25.00 each,this would generate $16,000.00,enough to send 2 winners and their crated rc submarine across the pond!I would be enticed to buy at least 2 tickets!

Is finance really the problem within our organisation? Last I heard we were solvent, but lacking volunteers and a shortage of copy and/or fresh content for the magazine. Not sure how extra bucks is going to solve that one.
