CRITIQUE ABOUT HAVING MORE THAN 1000 MEMBERS
We often hear that we should limit our Members to around 300 as based on some Grow Club Models. If we should consider limiting our Members then one should also take into consideration that we do not levy any membership fees, whereas Clubs that do levy membership fees may generate huge income from this. Therefor the presumption that Clubs with more Members are money driven, may be completely false. When you take into consideration that we are based in a small coastal town where our Members are highly seasonal, and where we see most Members only once during season in two years, then you can also not equate this with the same formula in terms of Members of City based Clubs. Finally in this regard, from our constitution, we have many educational & other efforts at The Club House.
Charging Membership Fees will exclude the House of Rastafari & other deprived communities from being Club Members, which we can not agree with.
For the reasoning as mentioned, The CannaClub's Stokvel stock is limited by the amount of plants that our Cultivation service providers are aloud to cultivate according to our Constitution (1000 max, not more than 1 flowering plant per Member) , and not in terms of membership numbers.
