5.3: "contribution fee may be 1,000 per year or less"

1) 1,000 Euro? Or Pound Sterling? US dollars? Peanuts? Please specify :)
2) wtf, 1,000? isn't that a little too high? or maybe even more than 
just a little... or is there a good reason for that amount?

I'd say everything else is ok. I'm not good in such things, tho.
