So the club have listened and are going to give out cards ,,,wonder what type ,?as some say think bank type card is best not crap paper ones,,,, as for cost suppose if there is around 3000, members it's going to cost minimum card and p p £1… each ,,,don't no if this is waste of three thousand pounds or so ,,or if it will affect club finances much ,,,,
so as say put couple pound on subscription ,,

#70 not sure where the evidence has come from to support a 50/50 split between members who desperately want a physical card and those who are happy without, however the answer is, those who want a card pay say £3* extra on their membership each year - if you don't pay you just get the "e-card" on your phone - simples!
*£3 is just my estimate of the cost of the stationery, postage, and admin time to print and stuff envelopes, but I'll bet it's not far off.

I'm sure a two option system wont add any more cost / complexity
Derek, no need for additional costs if cards are sent out with next edition of Low Flying. First class stamp = 76p plus envelope × 3000, a big saving for the club.
Much often depends on the extent to which the head office message has reached the individual store. And then how ‘relaxed’ the store operatives might be.
In the same Halfords store, within 3 days, I have been asked for my membership card by one person and not by another.
Whether the Stocard option would be accepted I would have to test
Same experience in the Cotswold Outdoor store in Bakewell.
Don't MSUK need to see membership cards for sign on at speed events?
if cards are sent out with next edition of Low Flying
Democratic dissent is not disloyalty, it is a positive civic duty
At speed events you now have to send a scan of your membership card with your entry - I just did a screen grab from LoveAdmin! If the LA app worked properly I would use the e-card as my wallet is full of membership cards which are rarely used but carried "just-in-case".
