Our IBM Ring meets at a local university that charges us $360 a year to meet in a classroom. We only have 16 members and our dues are $20.00 a year. So we only bring in $320 in dues a year, so we're automatically in the red every year. We make a little extra money by holding auctions and flea markets, but it's not that much.

I'm looking for ideas from other IBM Rings for places to meet.
I went through some Ring reports in _Linking Ring_ of other clubs and came up with these meeting place statistics:
TALLY OF RINGS AND MEETING PLACES
RECREATION CENTERS: 2
CHURCHES: 12
CaféS/RESTAURANTS: 9

Anyone have any suggestions for other possible more economical meeting locations?
I guess we could always raise our dues.

We meet at a local library. We are able to reserve a meeting once a month through the local library system at no charge. Afterwards those that choose to go out for a slice of pizza or something similar.
