The best $20 you will ever spend, or Jersey Shore Touring Society Dues Explained
Here is how JSTS dues payment works: club dues are for the calendar year. If you pay any time during the year up to September 30th, then you are paid through December 31st of the current year.
Per the Jersey Shore Touring Society by-laws, dues payment from October 1st on is applied to the next year's membership. And like the statement says above, payments received through September 30th are applied to the current year.
Don't wait to join, however; you must be a member to ride with the club after one guest ride.
