**Membership Update for the Upcoming Season 24-25**

Hello everyone,

As we gear up for the next season, I’ve been inundated with inquiries about joining our community. To streamline the process and save time on individual responses, here’s a quick rundown of how we’ll handle memberships:

**New Members:**
– **Interested in Joining?** Create an account on our website with your name, address, email, etc.
– **Stay Tuned for Membership Details** for the 2024/2025 season. You’ll receive an email with application instructions once details are released.
– **No Waiting List:** Please note, we do not maintain a waiting list.

**Existing Members Seeking an Upgrade:**
– **Looking to Upgrade?** You’ll have the opportunity to apply for an upgrade closer to the time. Wait for an email with instructions.

**Existing Member Renewals:**
– **Ready to Renew?** Simply log in to your account and make a payment after receiving the renewal email with detailed instructions, including how, when, and the costs for the next season.

**Important Dates:**
– **Emails with All Details** will be sent out in April, following the AGM on the 8th. This is to ensure any AGM-related changes are included.

**Application Windows:**
– Specific application and renewal windows will be provided. Failure to renew within your window will result in your membership being considered for resale.

**High Demand Alert:**
– Given the high interest, it’s likely that available memberships will not suffice for everyone interested.

**Night Permits:**
– These are limited and increasingly hard to acquire as current holders are retaining them.

**Account Closure:**
– If you wish to close your account and stop receiving communications from us, you’ll have the option to do so upon receiving the April email.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we prepare for another exciting season.

Best regards,
