Good thing Masters licences are only $150 then

I have been involved in Water Skiing and Kart Racing, and find cycling to be cheap by comparison. Entry fees for race events in Tasmania are bargain basement.
Have you looked at the cost of the various "challenges", or "fun rides" as I call them. I think that you would get a lot more "event" activity via a CA licence and race entry fees, than you would get via "fun rides" for a given annual cost.
As an example close to home, look at the Mt Wellington Challenge.
It was a cycle club event, and the entry was $20. Last year it was taken away from the cycling clubs, and the entry fee went to $40.
While you agonise over cycling costs, have a look at the Dome Coffee rides from Sandy Bay, and the Wednesday morning Richmond Bakery rides. Best value for money in cycling. Free

On the Cycling.org website membership for Race Masters 1 to 7 is $220. Although I haven't checked out local pricing as yet.
I've been following the Dome and Richmond Bakery threads. Maybe I'll have to wait until I'm an old fart

Variables aside, I'll use clip-ons next time and aero wheels and clip-ons the time after.
