We live in the San Antonio area and medical helicopers are being used more and more every day to transport people to the hospital. When emergency responders call for the chopper thats your ride and they are not cheap. Your insurance does not cover a lot of the expence. Don't think in terms of long distance travel. You could need the coverage in your home town. In our area choppers are used within a few blocks of major trama hospitals for non-life threatening injuries. This happens every day. A lot of the medical chopper use is not necessary especially with the excellent trained EMT's but it is a business to keep thse choppers flying. We get stuck with the bill. Coverage from SkyMed, Good Sam's, or a host of similar companies could save you a lot money.

I would be willing to pay higher dues but.....
The first condition would be an improved club and then provide the goodies. Internal structure change, IBT change, International Rally change.
The functioning of the club needs to be addressed first, add value to that and then add Sky Med etc.
Then talk to me about an increase.......

How about making the dues $ 45.00 with the option to get Blue Beret electronically only, I don't need a paper copy.

You need the paper copy if you want the membership directory. The directory is redacted from the electronic copy.

Not sure that is true. The new member information is deleted from the Blue Beret online, but I am fairly certain that every member receives the directory.

Yes. In hard copy. That's the point. You still need a paper copy of that issue, at least.

The membership directory is a separate item, not a part of the Blue Beret.

Since my latest membership directory says "Blue Beret, January 2013" on the cover, forgive me for being confused.

The membership directory was completely separate from the Blue Beret. A couple of years age, in a cost savings move, the january edition of the Blue Beret was replaced with the directory.

At the same time they went to the larger format for the directory.

If the club could get significant discounts, that might sell some "premium" memberships.

But I get all sorts of discount offers from companies I deal with, even from banks. Some memberships offer deals on everything you can imagine at no extra cost. I forget about them right away and rarely have used them. There are more discounts than I can keep up with and many things can be negotiated on my own anyway.

For the club to get discounts to road service or other services is more likely to sell some memberships as it would be optional. That is the way other groups do it.

So the premium membership idea might bring in some members and keep some, but it isn't going to solve the other systemic problems.
