I don't know how long ago they charged that up front amount, but it's been much less for at least the past 7 years that I know of. Also, no letters of recommendation are required, but you do need to have 2 sponsors (can be appointed by the club if a potential member doesn't know anyone). Sponsors are basically there to offer guidance, make introductions and answer any questions that a new member might have.
