    Default Membership Challenge - 2009

    It is only appropriate to use my 4,000th post on this forum for a great cause - to promote membership in the Mount Washington Observatory. As we did in 2008 I ask that you move your membership level up at least one notch this year when it is up for renewal. Or if you are not a member yet, please join.

    The MWO is a non-profit organization that needs our financial support. Through memberships and special fundraising the organization funds a lot of its day to day activities. Who have you met that comes to the Observatory's web site and does not look at the web cameras? We love to read the Observer Comments on the web site and review the Photo Journal. This all takes money to support and provide.

    But, MWO is far more that we do not see just through the web. Members can get a tour through the summit facilities when they hike or ride up. During these tours we get a better idea of what the Observatory is all about and the harsh conditions the staff have to put up with (and they love it). The Observatory is now reaching out to schools across the country through the Internet providing live educational glimpses about weather and what it is like at the summit. It does research and product testing and weather data gathering and weather forecasting and, and, and. It does a lot for us all.

    Above all (pun intended), the MWO is a quality organization focused on providing valuable services to society in general and its members specifically. Being a member opens up special doors and access to the wonderful world up above or in the clouds. It is an organization that wants us involved and strives to communicate with us like few other organizations. Please support the MWO and help it continue its great work.

    No doubt, the Summit club level is great. I think it is the standard level for serious members. That said, there is no condemnation for those of you serious members that just can't afford this level. But if you can, please do. This level gives the MWO more to work with after the initial expenses are paid for.
    Our goal as members should be to see to it that this organization stays as top notch as possible, by getting involved when we can. It is great to see how much the MWO values and respects it's members at every level. I believe that our ability to be involved is the lifeblood of the organization. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.
    As Brad has stated, if your not a member yet, check out the membership page for detailed info on joining and the benefits you receive. Volunteering is a fun and exciting way to get to know the people who work and volunteer for the MWO but you must be a member to do so.

    I can't believe it has been a year since I joined

    Due the end of March, renewed today

    I will have to blame it on Brad, it ain't easy prying money out of a Swamp Yankee.

    I will accept a certain amount of blame. The rest is rightfully due MWO for forcing us to be members. If we were not, we would feel real bad knowing we are taking advantage of the forum, weather forecasts, current conditions and web cameras - all for free. It is only right that we contribute a bit to help keep these services running and provide a place where such nice folks can pick on Brad any time they want.

    So, being a new month - it is time for our periodic reminder to sign up for membership in the Observatory. It is a great cause and they need our support, especially now. If you are a member, please look at moving up one level. The difference is probably not all that much. But, it means a lot to the Observatory. Every little bit helps.

    Executive Chief Cheerleader,

    It is a new month and we all need to be reminded to move up a level in our MWO membership if we are renewing this month. And if you are not a member, please join at any level and support the organization.
