Membership fees

Membership fees
At the Annual General Meeting a motion was accepted that the club fees be increased annually to R1,200-00 for a member or R1,800-00 for a family. Should a once off payment be a burden, a monthly contribution will be accepted at R100.00 per month for a member or R150.00 per month for a family.
The motion also made provision for members that cannot afford it to approach the chairman (or anyone of the committee) where a decision will be taken whether or not to waive the fees for that member. This will be done on an annual basis.
The club’s bank account details are:
Absa Bank; Account number 22855913 ; Branch code 632005.
PLEASE email us your proof of payment so that we may update our records – email zs6erb@gmail.com.
