don't take this the wrong way
but if you keep quiet we don't know.
to my knowledge, you are the only person this has happened to??
the committee are volunteers who do this for the love of Celicas and the club, we are not machines or a highly paid organisation.
in other words, we are human, and unless people point things out, we are not to know.
You should have received a keyring when you joined the very first time, you do not get one each time you renew. If you didn't, I don't know why?
If you came to a meeting and asked, you would have it.
If you asked when renewing for someone to post it to you or bring it to the track day / next event / next cruise, you would have it.
like a lot of things in life - don't ask = don't get
I love your idea on posting out a "pack" of some sort (no idea what would be in it - ideas people?) to new and renewing members - AGM is next month, please feel free to come along and grab your card and keyring, have a say in how the club is run haha, and maybe even put your hand up for the committee (membership officer is currently vacant).
out of interest, at the meeting last night, cards (Celica club cards to put under windscreens and hand to interested people) were handed out to those who wanted them - something to go in a "pack"?
the above goes for everyone - sit back and say nothing and we don't know.
get involved in running YOUR club.
come to meetings and have a say.
jump on the forums and have a say.
this club is run for YOU
