All members...

If you paid your £25 annual membership, and don't have the red GWOA badge against your posts - its a glitch.  We found some without and corrected.  Member access seems to be unaffected.

New window stickers (not tax disc holders) are coming.

Message GWOA Admin if you think yours should have it.  Regds.

Re: GWOA Membership - Red Badge

Hi Geoff,

Your last membership renewal was July 2017, so not currently full membership, just registered.  It's still only £25

We have a limited amount of (mostly anniversary) shirts, and some model Gs.  The idea is to give them away to at a meet we can get set up.  Such as the planned G-tune workshop on 12th September 2020

Still planning on a goody bag of some new things but still need to free up the member funds to pay for it.

Re: GWOA Membership - Red Badge
How do we know whether we're paid up to date, please? Is there an easy way that we can check. I recognise that it might be an onerous task for the official GWOA bean counter to let us know. £25 is an easy number to fall off the VISA radar. I'd love a T-shirt, btw.

Re: GWOA Membership - Red Badge

Hi Chris

That's it fixed for you. Sorry about the delay, the system is no longer automated and has to be checked manually which is not ideal.

We are working to update the website which should  make it more reliable and easier to navigate.

Regards

Doug.

Re: GWOA Membership - Red Badge

I've been a member since the mid nineties, have never had a red badge and it says I joined in 2011!

will I get a red badge in the New Years Honours  List perhaps?

Also, being a registered GWOA web user is not the same as a paying Member. Paying Members get a few additional perks, like access to the tech doc library, some insurance offers and other website quirks, such as the red flag against your posts.  You should all also get the Red Member decal/sticker/vinyl and a goodie bag.  The goodie bag hasn't happened yet and we need a new supply of vinyl stickers.  New year resolution to sort that out finally. -John

Re: GWOA Membership - Red Badge
I think that I am a paid up member although there is no red badge beside my name... If not, will there be a reminder as in days of yore? £25 shouldn't break the bank. Thanks, Nick.

Re: GWOA Membership - Red Badge

Thanks Admin! A red banner for the New Year would be lovely!

Hope everyone can have some sort of Happy Christmas and a better New Year!

Re: GWOA Membership - Red Badge

If anyone wants to know if their membership is still current please log in and click on the My Account link on the left.

If your club membership is still current the expiry date will be displayed in the Personal section, if it is not current then only your membership number will be displayed. Click on the Check Order History link above the Personal section to see when you last paid for a membership.

If you have a membership number and want to renew your membership please click on the Renew Existing Membership link at the top of the page.

 

I hope this makes things a bit clearer.

Another quirk is that renewal retains your original membership start date. In your case February!  So I have extended that so you get 12 months from today (otherwise your renewal for 2021 would be just 2 months away).

Happy Xmas.

You are that cyber wizard, John. Thank you to you and The Team. For some reason our G-W mileage is much reduced this year. Hmmm...
