Default Goichberg Objects to An Alternate Proposal by Don Schultz

The problem is not that the dues are too high or too low.
The problem is that the dues are now both too high and too low. For
example, $41 is too high for those who play in an occasional rated
tournament and find the online magazine as good as hard copy. $23
minimum through affiliates will deter more organizers from holding
rated high school tournaments than $19. And that same $23 through
affiliates is too low for young adults who prefer the hard copy
magazine, as the cost to USCF of sending such a member a year of Chess
Life is about $15, leaving only $8 to apply towards fixed overhead.

Bill Goichberg
The problem is that you are complaining about a dues structure that
you, Bill Goichberg, created. Every year you have come to the
delegates meeting with a proposal for a new dues structure, and in
general the delegates have approved your proposals. Even when the
delegates have not approved your proposals, you have pushed them
through the board as "promotions".

Now, you are saying that your dues structure is no good and therefore
we must jettison Chess Life magazine.

I think it is time that somebody other than Bill Goichberg looked at
this and we should put off getting rid of Chess Life until that is
