    Have you been wondering how you become a member? Have you been sitting on the fence about becoming a member? Well here is some helpful information and the sign up to become a member :)

    There is no requirement to join to participate here online or attend meetings, but we appreciate the members who have chosen to support the club and help pay our operating expenses. BUT we do ask that ALL of the information in your contact space be totally correct. We do this as there are many spammers who try and make usernames on this website. Not having the correct information can result in being banned. Some of our events have admission fees which are reduced or waived for paid members. Our sponsors also offer discounts and specials for our card-carrying members. Please check out our sponsors to see their specials and support them for supporting us!

    Oh and don't forget that many of our local Sponsors/Vendors offer a MASC discount with your membership card. All you have to do is inquire about discounts for MASC members and show your card.

    Membership requires that you do one of two things. You either must attend two meetings in one year OR you can pay your annual fee's. Annual dues are currently $24 for one year of Single Individual membership, $36 for one year of a Couples membership and $48 for one year of a Family Membership. To donate for your new membership, please see below.




    Membership Type Desired
    Individual Membership : $24.00 USD - yearly
    Couple Membership : $36.00 USD - yearly
    Family Membership : $48.00 USD - yearly

    *** Required - MASC User Name

    Once your membership has processed, you will receive a membership card at the next monthly meeting. Please allow 30 days for your membership to be processed before contacting our membership director for help. During that time, our membership coordinator will add your information to the club records and update your online profile so you can see the members-only forums and have the member logo. Be sure to keep a printed or email copy of your payment in case any questions arise later.

    Note about PayPal: PayPal will set you up with a subscription that will renew each year. You can always cancel your subscription and your membership will remain in effect through your renewal date (1 year from the day you signed up). PayPal will automatically cancel your subscription when you do things like change your bank or credit card information. This will not affect your membership for the current year, but you will need to renew your membership by either PayPal'ing the money or cash or check the following year.

    Does the Garage Sale count as an "event". I was there and picked up some sweet frags and stuff but did not see a sign in sheet.

    Thanks, John

    Does it? I have been to the one meeting at aquatic art in July and the garage sale does that mean I'm a member now?

    It depends, did you sign the sign in sheet? That's the only way we have to verify attendance at the meetings and there are just too many people for the BoD to remember who all was there.

    John as Drew suggested you need to sign the sign in sheet in order to for us to credit you one meeting towards membership. The sign in sheet was at the table that the raffle tickets were being sold at.

    Matt did you sign in at both meetings? I def know you were at the garage sale with your 180 forsale.

    Does hosting the frag swap meeting count?

    If we're bumping this to let people know how to become a member, then we might want to put the thread in the MASC Info thread instead of the Members Only Announcements! Lol...
