The central purpose of tall clubs is to create an environment where tall people can meet, share ideas and information, and develop friendships.
When you take into consideration how rare we are (only about 1 percent of American women are 6'0" or taller and only 1 percent of American men are 6'4" or taller), the importance becomes more apparent. Being able to socialize and discuss issues eye-to-eye is refreshing.
Simply stated, the club does whatever the members want to do! Our typical activities include dinners out, house parties, dine-outs, hikes, walks, skiing, snowshoeing, bike rides, dinner/dance parties at local clubs, movie nights, cook-outs, etc. There is no end to the events that might appear on the calendar.
We suggest that prospective members attend at least one event prior to requesting membership.
Our membership process is fairly simple:
* Fill out our membership form.
* We will verify your height in stocking / bare feet.
* Your application will be voted on, at our monthly meeting.
* Dues are paid and that's it!
Yes, you are welcome to bring guests to events, unless the event is marked as a “Closed” event for members only. Your guest does not have to meet the height requirement. The guest would pay non-member price if required.
We do track the age of our members or prospective members. We seem to have a mix of ages from the 30's to 60's with the majority in the 40's to 50's.
The names in the club database are pretty much a 50/50 mix between male and females. However, the gender mix at our events varies from activity to activity.
We are currently in the process of rebuilding the club. As of September 2022, we have three members and about 70 prospective members. While our numbers are low at this time, we are consistently working hard to get the word out about the club, recruit more prospective members, and we have so much fun at our events!
Our membership dues are used to cover necessary expenses and we work diligently to keep our dues as low as possible. Our dues are $20.00 for a single person and $35.00 for a married couple per year. Membership dues are collected in July.
While it is true that non-members are welcome at our events, there are a number of advantages to joining the club. Our dues are very reasonably priced and go towards covering our expenses.
Becoming a member allows you to sponsor events, vote at our meetings, hold a position on the board of directors, and take part in running the club.
Membership in our Tall Club includes membership in Tall Clubs International (TCI). This means you are able to attend TCI weekends, the annual TCI convention, and access “members only” portion of the TCI website. But more than anything, being part of the club means just that – you are part of the long-standing (no pun intended) Kansas City Skyliners Tall Club!
Any member can sponsor an event.
We accept suggestions for events and choose which events to attend at our monthly meeting.
We try to have at least two events each month. We try to be mindful of the cost associated with the event. We also try to have an occasional family-friendly event.
It’s very easy to host an event. First, become a member of the club. It is recommended that you select an event that you are interested in and would attend anyway. Hosting an event is simply greeting all attendees and making sure everyone has a great time.
Unfortunately, the Kansas City Skyliners Tall Club does not participate in the scholarship program at this time. However, the Tall Clubs International Foundation has a scholarship program.
