Reminder about Club Membership


​The first of April is our renewal date and membership details have been sent by email so we can pay on time. A period of one month is more than sufficient grace to get this done by.

If you have not renewed but have raced under SDAC's name in the Grand Prix or Club Champs then points will not count, only in future races after you have renewed.

It's unfair that members who pay on time have to subsidise others as E.A. Membership has to be paid in April and this forms a large part of your membership.


Should you not wish to renew please have the courtesy to inform the membership secretary before April is out.


Coaches that are actively coaching pay half fees but still have to pay their E.A Membership as we cannot subsidise this.
