In order to join the club, you need to be sponsored by two current members. The best way to get sponsorship is to attend classes and events and get to know the members. Once you have your sponsors lined up, fill out the 2 page Membership Application and have your sponsors sign it.

Please read the MNDTC Constitution & Bylaws, and agree to abide by them by signing your application. Please send the application (make sure you have included both pages), including the proper amount for dues, to the MNDTC at PO Box 315, Boalsburg, PA 16827. Once the club has acknowledged the membership application at a regular meeting, the applicant will have all the benefits of membership except voting and reduced fees for classes offered by the club; and will be required to attend a regular meeting and be introduced by one of the sponsors. The introduction shall include what the person's interests are, and how he or she would like to contribute to club activities. If there are extenuating circumstances that prevent attendance at a regular meeting, the applicant is to notify his or her sponsor so other arrangements may be made.
