    Back in the mid-70s when I was a kid there was a “join IPMS-USA” flyer that was inserted into kit boxes.  I badgered my dad into signing me up and paying the $5.00 fee.  Got a letter back rejecting my application because the fee had been raised to $6.00.

    Fast forward to the mid-80s … I joined on my own dime and kept my membership through high school and USNA … even attended the ’87 Nats in DC.  A year later there was a scandal because some members of the Executive Board embezzled funds from the IPMS treasury.  That was pretty much the last straw for me.  I dropped my membership and I haven’t seen anything since from IPMS-USA that would make me reconsider.
