The Canadian ASL Association is curious to know if lowering the membership fee from ten dollars to five dollars (per year) would induce a person to join if they did not join at the ten dollar fee.

What does membership for $5 or $10 get you? A seat at your tourney? A snazzy newsletter? While I'm unlikely to go to a Canadian tourney (not ruling it out), I'd be interested in paying for a newsletter that had a scenario in it (aka DFTB). I would not be particularly interested at even $5 if this is just dues for being a club member. If I lived within driving distance, that would be a different story.

$5 or $10 a year? Does not really make a difference. I would not lower the fee. Can you spare 2.74 cent a day to pay the $10? Would saving 1.37 cent a day change you attitude?

Just my 2 cent...

Don't attendees of the Canadian ASL Open automatically become members of the Canadian ASL Association? I think that's what used to happen, and when I passed on the tournament this year I let my membership lapse as well. If I'm able to participate in 2015 I expect i will re-up. Whether the fee is $5 or $10 will not affect my decision.

The $5 either way was never a consideration for me.

i did not vote because i am a member

i am a member of CASLA because it is a wee fee and i want to support CASLO. every time i have gone it has always been a fun tourney. and i like the vote for the host city bit. i am not sure of any other tourney that does that. cool idea but i always pray for an opportunity to vote for a eastern host because, unless i win the lottery or live long enough to retire, i don't see myself making it to one too far away for a while. come on Maritimes 2016! besides, Steffen bought members diner the year i joined AND there is always wicked good scotch (its in the charter)

Nothing tangible like that. Being a member gives one the right to vote on the location of the Canadian ASL Open, submit a bid to hold the CASLO in your Canadian city, and stuff like that.

I would bid for the location to be Florida :)

(no vote from me, being from south of the border)

I didn't realize I could join a Canadian ASL Association, where do I go to join?

contact Michael Rogers. CASLA will take anybody, as long as your check clears
