When NHSA created the electronic/online membership portal, they set the membership fees for the clubs at $35. This was to avoid some clubs charging way less (or way more) than other clubs. Clubs were given the option to participate in the online membership portal, and if so they would charge the same $35. Some clubs declined to participate, so those clubs can set their own membership fees.
The NH AG's office was looking at NHSA for potential anti-trust violation. Where this came from I am not 100% sure, but I suspect it was reported by some of the non-participating clubs.
Then NHSA filed a lawsuit I think to stop the AG investigation. This is the lawsuit that was just rejected by the court. But this is the part that is fuzzy to me.

What is not fuzzy to me is that the thread title is misleading.
What never ceases to amaze me is how too many cooks always spoil the soup!

What was wrong with the tried and true old method of simply joining your local club then simply showing your membership card when registering to get the discount? This worked fine for years! Now lets get all these organizations involved that want a piece of the pie to ruin a real simple thing! Amazing!
