The constitution of the Club requires your application to be proposed and seconded by existing members. Come to the Club on a Tuesday evening and finding these two signatures is normally easy; we do like to meet new members face-to-face. The constitution also requires that members be elected to the Club after an initial period, which allows other members to vet the application. This is a formality and members are free to participate in club events as soon as the Club receives payment.
