2007 BULLETIN #1  April, 2007



       Greetings to our fellow 300 Club Members!!  The 2007 Season has begun and the Germain Glidden Bowl is once again up for grabs!  The 2007 300 Club Ballot deadline is, as always, midnight, the second Monday in May, which this year falls on May 14.  DON’TFORGET!


For 2007, we repeat our popular “two-fer New-Member” offer: any Member who signs up two new Members for 2007 plays free and saves the 2007 Membership dues!  As always, our dues are $50 for returning Members, and $50 plus a one-time Initiation Fee of $25 for New Members.


As we all know, each year we have active and returning Members who miss the deadline, and  there are always people who get disappointed.    We really want to try to prevent this in 2007.  So, this year, we’d like to urge all Members (and new Members) to do the following ASAP!!


First:  Please, oh please, go to the website, log in, and update your personal info, including your email and mailing addresses.  We can’t communicate to the Membership without accurate info!

Follow instructions or call us if you forgot your login/password.  We NEVER release info.    

Second:  The Balloting section is now open.  We urge you to enter a Ballot NOW.  It’s been shown that once that’s done, Members tend to remember to make final choices by the deadline and not forget.  As always, you can make changes to your Ballot up ‘til Midnight of the Deadline Date just by logging in and clicking on your Ballot.  Payment isn’t due until the Deadline. 

Third:  Show the Site to your friends!  They too can register on the Site easily, and select  a Ballot, which they too can change or use as they wish.  Remember, Ballots are only activated after payment is received, so there’s no charge if someone fills out a Ballot and later decides not to play (although we can’t imagine why!).

Fourth:  MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW!  The 2007 Balloting deadline is Monday, May 14.  We will try to get out refrigerator magnets and reminder cards in our mailing shortly, and we will send out email reminders from time to time as the Deadline draws near. 


We hope all will play in 2007. We welcome new Members, and we look forward to the weekly winners, the midseason winners, the “perfect ballot,” the individual contest winners, and the Grand Prize Winner at season’s end.  May yours be the best Ballot….after mine!
