Probably, around $30/year. Our club has a website and other related stuff (used for scheduling) that isn't free. LAB also provides liability insurance for club officers that also isn't free. We also provide incentives (not free) to people to lead rides. We also organize club events (that aren't free).

In practice (in the real world) there is nothing that makes no-drop rides "necessarily" like what you describe. That is, it's one why to run things but not the only way.
