#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.

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.

Sorry Billy, nice idea but sadly that doesn't work. Membership is managed from the Pink Angels office, while the printing and distribution of LowFlying is not, bar those for overseas members. Also, the distribution company charges per inserted sheet.

At speed events you now have to send a scan of your membership card with your entry Wobble - 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".
