New Members Info
We have a monthly Members Meeting on the 3rd Sunday of every month at 6pm. Our meetings are held at City Side Restaurant in Brewer, Maine (Formerly Dino's Pizza.) The forum thread for each month's meeting are posted at least 1 week in advance of each meeting. We would like to have members attend every meeting but understand that is not always possible.
Anyone is welcome to sign up on our forums and be a non-supporting member, however some of the areas and features of the forums will be restricted. We urge our non-supporting members to become Full Members so they can help support their club and unlock the extra benefits!
Yearly dues are $15 per Member and $5 per Passenger (if applicable) that desires their own screen name on the site. The 'passengers' will have their own, aptly named title in the forums (Passenger) and must be sponsored by a full member.
Dues will be payable at the meeting the following full month after joining. Membership dues are payable no later than May 31st of each year. Your status will be upgraded to "Full Member" on the website as soon as possible and your membership will be good until the following May 31st.
Any members who join in December or after, the fee is only $5 and the full $15 membership amount will be due by May of the upcoming year..
Penobscot Valley 4-Wheel Drive F.A.Q.
What's up, you say? This is what's up!
Q: How much is it to join PV4WD for 1 Year?
A: The annual membership for PV4WD.Com is $15 for a single screen name, $20 ($15 + $5) for two screen names (typically reserved for the driver and their "significant other" situations.) The membership is for 1 calendar year, from May until May. Members wanting to become 'Full Members' after November will owe only $5 for the winter. Your status will be upgraded to "Full Member" on the website as soon as possible and your membership will need to be renewed by the end of May that year. Passenger dues are $5 yearly, no matter when they are signed up and are due every May.
Q: I don't live in Penobscot County. Can I still join the club?
A: PV4WD.Com is a Jeep club based in Central Maine. We do have members from outside this area and all across North America, however most events will happen within an hour's drive of the greater Bangor/Brewer area.
** updated - 10.03.2015 ** we now have members all over the US and Canada, if you would like to join us please feel free to create a profile
Q: I don't drive a Jeep. Can I still join the club?
A: We are a Jeep club. This includes all makes, years and models of Jeeps. Non-Jeepers are welcome to apply, but keep in mind the exceptions to the rules are rare. Many of the trails we frequent are designed specifically to work with a Jeep's compact footprint. Larger vehicles may be cool, but they just won't fit where we ride and don't typically have the reduced impact on the environment that PV4WD wishs to support!
Q: Where does all the money raised from club dues and stickers go to?
A: The Club has a checking account at a local bank specifically used only for PV4WD-relevant expenditures/income. All income from the club is deposited directly into this account. Your dues and payment for stickers go to cover not only the cost of operating the website and allowing bandwidth but also paying for the bulk purchase of the stickers themselves. Other outlets for the club's finances are being discussed constantly and as things arise, supporting members will vote on any spending.
The administrators of this club and site reserve the right to modify these guidelines at any time and without notice. While any major chances will most likely be announced publicly, be sure to check the FAQ thread if any questions arise. If the FAQ does not answer a question you have, please email an administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
