Where in the VT Space Bldg does the club meet? I don't want to wander around in a Space Cadet daze more than usual.
See ya on Thu,

Venmo doesn't have the fee to pay, Even though it is owned by PayPal. I would personally suggest doing Venmo because it's pretty simple, free, and pulls the money directly off of my card.
Those are just my 2 cents -- or 1.8 cents after transaction fees.

Honestly, it's worth just getting square and either paying the 3% or adding the 3%as a convenience fee. Or setting up PayPal or venmo (they have the same corporate ownership) and asking people to identify it as a personal transfer.

Just to get this also answered publicly.. no, not yet (unfortunately).  Getting a merchant account or "Free Credit Card Reader" from our bank is not exactly trivial (we don't make enough money to make it worth their while) .  and Paypal is  bit of a hack.   I suppose we could get a square account and reader set up, but they take a cut and we already don't really handle that much money to make it worth while.


That being said.. if anyone has any suggestions for poor not-for-profits payment processing (we can't even afford to file for non-profit status ;), then I'm all ears.


With fewer and fewer people carrying cash, it would be nice to be able to accept credit/debit cards at launches.. but I haven't looked into it in a few years now.


So if anyone has suggestions, PM me and let me know what you think.

Hey all!


So we're having a members meeting on Feb 2nd (two days before our Feb launch).


This is your last chance to re-up your membership for 2017 calendar year without being dropped from the nrvr-members list. After that date, we'll still take new members, but we'll be purging the [nrvr-members] mail list of non-current members and adding the new members.  So if you don't want to fall out of communications with us.. either come to the meeting, or fill out a membership form for 2017 and get it and your dues to me asap:

(if you already have a signed 2016 membership form with us but can't make the meeting.. then just send in your 2017 dues via check or money order and I'll proxy-initial your waiver/liability agreement for 2017 (address on the membership PDF in link above)


Club Business:

We also need to hold our 2017 club/TRA position elections. So we after we do new & re-up member sign-ups, we'll probably move on to do that.



Club Fun:

How about a meeting Show-n-Tell Time for this meeting? We don't have a formal meeting preseter/topic.. So what did you get for Christmas? What's your current build you're working on?  Bring it!


I might bring a part of my current L3/5.5" Black Brant I'm building.. or possibly talk about 3D-prited Avionics Bay parts that I'm currently playing with (if anyone is interested). :) Here are a few samples of already existing parts folks can quickly download and print:
