The way we have always operated is that until the end of October, whenever you join, you join for that year and you get all the sprats for that year and we send you any Sprats that you've missed. So for instance, if you join in April, we would have by then sent the Spring Sprat to members so we will send you that issue to bring you up to date.
Join after the end of October and you have joined for the following year and your first subscription Sprat is the spring Sprat of the following year.
So you subscribe for four Sprats rather than for a calender year's membership.
- There are therefore no mid year membership renewal dates, everyone renews at the beginning of the year.
- There are also no multi year subscription options. You can only pay for the current year - until November 1st when we begin to accept renewals for the following year.
You can join by mail or online via Paypal.
By mail we ask you to print out this form and provide all the requested information.
We have international representatives in these countries if you would like to deal with someone local and pay in your own currency:-
United States of America ($22) New Zealand (NZ $28) Germany (15 Euro) The Netherlands (15 Euro) Belgium (15 Euro) Austria (15 Euro) Australia (AUD $24) Spain (15 Euro) Denmark (115 DKK) Italy (15 Euro) France (15 Euro)
Otherwise send the form to Membership Secretary Tony G4WIF (UK £6, Europe £12, DX £13).
Please only send cheques that are drawn on a United Kingdom bank and make them payable to "GQRP Club". Cheques drawn on a foreign bank are not negotiable in the UK. If you send cash then you do so at your own risk and please do not send coins in any currency other than UK Pounds. Our banks do not accept them.
If you have some kind of anti-spam arrangment (like "Spam Arrest") where G4WIF (or another club officer) has to register somewhere in order to send you an acknowledgement you may be waiting a long time. If you write to any club officer expecting a reply then it is up to you to whitelist their address or check your filter for a reply. Do not expect us to manage your spam problem for you.
