CRS membership costs $45 a calendar year (which includes a year’s subscription
to DUSTY TIMES) or $30 a calendar year without DUSTY TIMES. CRS membership also
includes two CRS decals, and entry forms and emailings from the various events.
The rest of the membership fee goes to year-end awards, and maintaining the
supply of equipment used to support those who organize events. There will be
a three month overlap allowed for people joining between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31.
For example, joining CRS on Oct. 1, 2007 will buy a membership effective until
Dec. 31, 2008 (1 year & 3 months); while joining on Sept. 30, 2007 will buy
a membership effective until Dec. 31, 2007 (3 months). Competitors will begin
accruing CRS championship points only after paying their annual membership fee.
The associate membership has been created for workers and other interested people
who want to keep up on rally activities but will not be competing. Associate
members will receive all of the event mailings but they do not receive championship
points. The fee for joining CRS as an associate member is $25 per calendar year
with DUSTY TIMES or $10 a calendar year without DUSTY TIMES. The three month
overlap as described above applies for associate members as well. If an associate
member should decide at a later date to become a competitor he/she may change
status by merely paying the $20 difference.
