The secretary explained that the England Athletics affiliation fee for each individual athlete in the club is set to remain at £15. However, the club affiliation fee for 2019 will rise from £100 to £150.

The committee proposed that the subscriptions should remain largely unchanged from 2018 levels, other than for a small increase in the ‘one-off’ annual fee option. This was accepted by the meeting and the fee structure for 2019 will be as follows. 

Competing members

OPTION 1: £35 if paid before the 31st March (after this date the fee increases to £75 for existing members) plus £2 for each track session at Shildon (payable on the night)

OPTION 2: a ‘one-off’ payment of £90 which includes the annual subscription and all track sessions

Non-competing members

£20 for the full year, plus £2 for each track session

Competing members over the age of 65 and with 10+ years membership will pay £30 for the full year if paid before 31st March.

AS THE JUNIOR SECTION HAVE THEIR OWN MEMBERSHIP FEES NO FAMILY DISCOUNTS WILL APPLY IN 2019. Juniors who also train on Tuesday nights along with the seniors will pay the £2 track fee each time they attend a session.

It would be preferable if you could make your payment direct into the club bank account, the details of which are as follows.
