Quote from: jeders on November 16, 2019, 07:51:00 pmIf you don't have an entirely separate group of people willing and knowledgeable in running it without any support from the squadron directly, then it will likely be far more trouble than it is worth.
Quote from: Spam on November 16, 2019, 09:10:12 pmBTW: Wing can take your money (and some have). There have been examples in the past where units were saving for a major project such as buying an aircraft and the money was diverted or the fund raised asset (radios/vehicle/etc. was transferred). National has even tried to put the touch on Wings to grab a share of donations at Wing level. So, what Eclipse mentions there isn't beyond belief, sadly.
Quote from: Eclipse on November 16, 2019, 11:36:54 pmI just took a few moments (TMFT for the win!) to review the 2014 updated Booster Club rules and honestly, I have no idea why anyone would bother.Why would a Unit CC give up that much control over money raised in his unit's name? Just fund raise directly.Unless the intention is to run a casino night with a cannabis tasting bar, what is a booster club going to do that the unit can't do themselves?And if someone can explain this paragraph in a way that makes sense, I'm all ears...CAPR 173-4, Page 7:https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/media/cms/R173_004_3C78BD19C872E.pdf"f. Wear of the Civil Air Patrol uniform and similar clothing while performing fundraising for Booster Club is prohibited. Garments (e.g. squadron t-shirts) identifying the squadronand not referring to Civil Air Patrol are acceptable. Garments (e.g., squadron t-shirts or otherforms of clothing identifying the squadron) are not to be worn in conjunction with any activitywith the booster club."So squadron t-shirts are acceptable, but squadron t-shirts are not to be worn? I've read this thing like 10 times andcan't find the decoder.
Quote from: FW on November 17, 2019, 01:16:49 pmAs someone who actually wrote the original 174-4, I can say that Booster Clubs are highly discouraged. The reason, is the temptation of FW&A. It takes a lot of discipline on all parties to make it work without falling into a very deep hole. My strong advice is just don't consider forming one.
