what do you get in return? [/b][/quote]
Well, I can't speak for the NCC, but joining does provide some pretty good benefits. First off, you get better seating. The more you donate, the better the seats are. Also, if you give $500/year or more, you are guaranteed a parking space (mostly in the lots between Hilton and JT...unless you write a big check). Giving $250/year gets you a decent shot at parking, but no guarantee. Finally, membership allows you to 25% off at T-Galaxy. Not to mention, the fact that you are helping the ISU athletic dept. fund what is a huge "hobby/obsession" for most of us Clone fans.
