We have an application form on the back of the February Branch Newsletter
(our year end is the end of February). About half the members pay up in
the first 3 weeks, then after another two weeks or so, those who still owe
are sent an email reminder (if they have email), most of whom respond
straight away, then the rest are sent a reminder letter with the "Chairman's
Letter" in July. Actually, this was the first year we did the email
reminder and it was very successful. They don't really have to remember -
we tell them!!

You were talking of your members, ie Brits in Britland; for the Wogs in
Wogland, it is a nuisance, as you can tell from the other ongoing discussion
