A buying cooperative as you state is only a part of SOME IDEAS that can 
go to save the members every penny they can. 

Like Ben Franklin Stated "A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned"
I have always believed in that philosphy.

However buying cooperatives is not a main focus.

  Miniaml Membership dues are a must for any club to surrvive 
  while dues have not yet been set it will probably be $30 & $45 USD
