Re: online membership renewal

Nyahh Don,

 This is a good little idea, fun, informative, community building.  Who of us really cares if it's accurate? or really about "membership. "  Just include it as a column labeled, say "SR Racer since . . ." The member will enter whatever four keystrokes he wishes which, if anyone wants to dispute for whatever ridiculous reason ,the truth can be proven by a perusal of our 35 years of results. (Shane B. might punch in his SR race total, if he wished, but I wouldn't give him a whole column!)

No hassle for the tech people, fun info about our community, show  of pride for our elders, what's not to like here?

It would be fun, but we just don't have the data.  People could submit it, but we have a hard enough time getting other more important info that we want!  Shane would probably lobby for a column showing races attended / completed / won!

Funny enough, managing membership for several years, I've noticed that a lot of people skip years and then come back.  For example, was a member in 2011 and 2012, skipped 2013 and 2014, back in 2015.  (Probably that Peace Corps stint in Uganda, eh?!)  I think online membership payment will help with renewals, and already many folks have used it.
