What Do These Members All Have In Common?

lifetime-membership-immortal-v2-med-1025x685What Do These Members All Have In Common??

They all recently became Lifetime Members during the Federation's Fall Membership Drive.

If you have been thinking about it, but haven't taken action, remember that you can save hundred of dollars during the membership drive, but the price goes back to $1600 afterwards and may increase to $1700 in 2017.

There is no better time than now to make your membership immortal.

Rejuvenation and prolonging of life beyond the normal span.
So an eternal spring..."

If you know in your heart that Soo Bahk Do® is going to be a lifetime endeavor for you, then a Lifetime Membership just makes sense.

membership-drive-no-dith-32-800x111

Lifetime Memberships currently run $1600 and may increase for 2017, but during our Fall Membership Drive FLASH SALE you can join the prestigious group of 260 other Lifetime Members for only $1200

That's a $400 SAVINGS which is an additional $100 DISCOUNT off the already reduced Fall Membership Drive discounted price for Lifetime Memberships which is $1300 and ends October 31.

However, this FLASH SALE only runs SEPTEMBER 12 to 18 and the FLASH SALE PRICE of $1200 will only be available on those days, so if you procrastinate, immortality may pass your membership by...or at minimum, increase the price by $100. 🙂

 

FLASH SALE ENDS IN:

Accept The Challenge!
Fall Membership Drive Challenges Await

Reading Time: 2 minutes.

A few know that challenges are actually opportunities in disguise and can't wait to accept them.

 
Will you?

Board Director and Lifetime Member Andy Arvidson Sa Bom Nim jumped right out there and issued a challenge for everyone:

“During the Federation’s inaugural Fall Membership Drive I am challenging all my fellow Dan and Ko Dan Ja Members and Lifetime Members to join me in celebrating our respective training anniversaries by contributing a dollar for each year you have trained. May 2016 was my 19th year and I have written my check for $19.00 and mailed it to the Federation today!   Will you please join me?

goldfish-jump-v1-lo-2800x2187


Sa Bom Nim Anna Oulashin jumped right in and rounded her contribution UP for good luck, then Sa Bom Nim Susan Fittanto elevated the challenge to a whole new level when she DOUBLED her training anniversary contribution AND added an ADDITIONAL in-kind contribution equal to her studio anniversary!

I also understand that this challenge has even spawned another challenge in Region 8 among school owners seeking to recruit the most new members during the Federation's Fall Membership Drive!

Wow!

This is a bit reminiscent of the 2016 National Festival Silent Auction when Sa Bom Nim Bill Nelson was auctioneering it so enthusiastically that he had people happily bidding against themselves! 🙂

Master Roberto Bonefont then piled on with his training anniversary contribution big time and rounded UP well... just because he could as did Sa Bom Nim Steve Lemner.  A number of other GUPS and DANS have also donated but have not yet posted a comment on the Training Anniversary Challenge page.

What say you fellow members and school owners?

Will you accept the challenges before you during the Federation's inaugural Fall Membership Drive?
