The total annual subscription cost at this time is $276.55.
 
The Board also received a request to fund stairs going down from the ski building to the soccer filed at the Caribou High School. The total cost of the project, and funding request, was $4,300. The Board decided to table this request and consider it for one of the special projects that our Cash Draw proceeds go towards.
 
In July the Board approved a motion to set aside $10,000 of the cash draw proceeds for the next 5 years, starting in 2016, to go to the new school project subject to the approval of the club. This was discussed at length at our club meeting on August 17th. The club had some concerns about how we would be recognized for donating $50,000 to the project. We are still waiting for the RSU to decide how they will recognize the large donors, and once we have that information we will bring the topic back to the club for discussion and action. That is anticipated to happen in November.
