PLEASE PAY YOUR 2017 DUES...PLEASE!

Your annual dues of $30 help us to cover the costs of running the Club...rent, insurance, upkeep, replacement of equipment and so on. $10 of each membership is set aside in a Capital Fund to hold in reserve in anticipation of a rental increase or a decision to build or buy our own building.  This set-aside cannot be used for normal operational expenses but should help us in the event of an unexpected capital expense.

If you have not paid your 2017 dues by 2/20/17 you are obligated to pay $10 per round. If you are not sure if you've paid, click on SDBC Member Directory on the left and check the rightmost column entry alongside your name.

Do yourself, and your Club, a service by paying your dues.  Either mail a check (address shown below) made out to SDBC or bring your dues to a game at the Club. Thanks.
