The late 80’s brought a second identity crisis for the UPBC of Calgary: public interest waned, membership numbers dropped significantly to only about 30 members, and the club considered formally dissolving the organization. In June 1990, the Executive Committee sent out a desperate letter to club members on the subject of folding its activities. UCPC’s registration with Alberta Consumer and Customer Affairs had expired by mid-1988 and renewal was not on the agenda for the next 18 months.
