Since 2017 Dubai Offroaders began to be registered in CDA (Communit Development Authority) and that cost the club annual fees.
DO is committed to that registration to keep the activities going.
So, DO is not charging to make any profit.
DO need members support to cover the running cost and keep the action alive.

Agreed. But that's why members pay an annual fee in DO. Apart from that if we start charging money for individual trips then that might affect the turnout of members. 250 AED is not a big amount. But then other clubs don't charge and here members have already paid an annual membership fee (which I must say is there only in DO). Anyway, this was just my opinion.

Thanks for your opinion.
DO appreciate the commitment of all members whom paid annual renewal.
Even Though, lot of members are not renewing which doesn't help in covering costs.
Obviously, all weekends individual drives are still free of charge and members are joining that all over the season.
Only very few events are chargeable especially that takes lot of effort in organizing like (GPS challenge) and some of the trips beyond borders.
