The way I understand James' plan, you don't need to contribute anything
The $10 folks have already paid is being considered "dues." This money was
originally going to be a downpayment on a t-shirt.
Instead, we will need to pay the full cost of the T-shirts we order.
Did I get that right, James?
If anyone has any fund-rasing ideas, short-term or for next year, please
share! And if anyone has any more questions or discussion, let us know.
PS. I was in a meeting that went until almost 4:00 pm, so I won't be making
it to club practice today.
