Club Membership Renewal/England Athletics Affiliation Fees.
We are writing to all members to remind you that your Club membership renewal fees are due as early payment does help The Club to plan financially. In the past the renewal fee has included the England Athletics Individual Affiliation Fee, which entitles you to compete in track and field, road or cross country races as a member of the Club at any level including South Yorkshire League Events and for your results to be included on The Power of 10.
Following the London Olympics Sport England reduced the funding to England Athletics, who now seek to make up the shortfall from Club members, aged 11yrs and upwards, by increasing the individual affiliation fee from £5 to £10. There are also plans to increase this fee by a further £5, each year for the next four years.
When you pay your renewal fee at the Club porta-cabin registration, if you wish to be a competing club member, could you pay an extra £10 in cash or by cheque payable to Doncaster AC. On the 31st March 2013 the Club will pay all member competition fees as one payment to England Athletics. It will be the member’s responsibility, after 31st March to pay the competition fee.
If you have since paid your renewal fee then please ignore this letter. Could I also draw your attention to the attached notice about the Club Annual General Meeting.
