We have had some requests for ways in which people could give back to the site and distinguish themselves. Receiving funds from supporting members allows SCS to not only make the site better, but also to host/sponsor events like S3, Subie Extravaganza, the SCS Mammoth Winter Meet, and SubieFest (and the ice cream truck).
After speaking individually with a number of regular SCS diehards who test drove it, the supporting membership subscriptions are finally ready to use: Here is a complete list of benefits
received for your SoCalSubies Supporter Paid Subscription. Here is the direct link to subscribe and get started
. The Paid Subscriptions
are also available from your 'USER CP' link. The Paid Subscriptions
link is on the lower left side menu under Miscellaneous.
