Sounds like a not-so-sneaky way for us Coasterbuzzers to pay for the site.  I bet after the first gathering, the next ones will be at crappy places that no one goes to.  Count me out.  Sorry, Jeff, your scams do not fool me.

Jeff's avatar And you're certainly welcome to not join. The rest of us will be scamming in on that ERT at PKI...

ERT at PKI? Oh why must you tempt me! Oh well, looks like I will just have to show up really really early on opening day of TR:TR.

This sounds all fine and dandy, but what about those of us in states that will not be included at the PKI ERT?  I live in SC, and what ERT events will we have?

I doubt I'll even be able to make it to the first scheduled event (I live no where close!) but I already signed up for the club (looks like I was member #5).  Any attempt to book cool events like that is a big plus, but I'm fine with a membership that just helps to support the site :-)

Great idea Jeff!

Sadly, I just can't join at the moment :(.

Well I am glad I have been scammed. Thank you Jeff for allowing me to give you $20 for my membership. It is my honor to join the CB Club.

Since the Club page has NO ADS, will we also not see any DUMBASS posts like above?

Just asking.

BTW, This stuff isn't free, if you can't afford a couple of bucks get lost.

Since I have been a ride-op at PKI since May, I have already ridden all the coasters multiple times for free w/ friends on my crew.  What are some other good reasons to join, Jeff?

Jeff's avatar Actually, we're going to try and get some ERT events scheduled around the country. I've got something that isn't terribly close to SC in the works, but it is at an "area" park. Ditto for several other areas. We'll never hit every park in the country, but we'll do our best to spread them out.

Consider also that events like Stark Raven Mad, which is open to all clubs, are things you can go to as well.

The first year we'll do what we can, but like any club, the members will have to help out to make additional contacts and setup events.

The only problem I see with it is that there will be no ERTS anywhere near me. :( I get the feeling the events will only be held in places such as CP, SWOA, PKI, HW etc. Too bad.

Maybe I'll sign up anyway... *** This post was edited by PT300 on 10/30/2001. ***

Ok, The One The Only Coaster God, to me that is discrimination.  Because some people have tight budgets or what about the people who don't have a computer at home and use the library computer to stay in touch with there love?  Saying if we can't afford a few bucks get lost that is un called for.  Or the people who only visit once in a while yet still contribute to the community, if they only visit once in a while and they don't feel the need to pay then they should go away?  There are many more things I could say but I'll stop here.

Jeff-I understand your reasoning for this and I understand that things are not free and you do need the money to repay what you are spending to make this site be where it is today but I will not be joining for many reasons, one of them being how often I actually expect to be able to go to the events and how I am tight on budget.  But none the less good luck and do what you have to do to keep CB allive and well.

P.S. A fan site shouldn't be dependant for money.  Its about spreading your love for the subject and not worrying about how much its taking from you because you LOVE it.
