Didn't run into that when we joined our sail club last season. But I laid low; listened a lot (well, for me, anyway ); was respectful; tried hard to learn, understand and honour the club's history and traditions, and generally tried to make myself useful .

The n00b is always going to be under the microscope on the part of some members--even in the friendliest of social organizations. People, in general, are suspicious of change. New people represent change. It's just human nature.
