That whole section is undergoing redevelopment, we just needed to update the headline numbers.

Personally I would prefer an option to select a number of years from 1 to 5 with a straight multiplier. I'll have a think about discount, I'm not sure it gets us much benefit

Surely there is a way to send out an automatic reminder to all BDGA members at the end of the year when membership expires? I didn't renew until mid way through the year this year when I knew I was going to be playing a tournament and wanted to make sure I got my rating.
could we make it manditory to be associate member this year for bdga tour events? we need to act now if so as jesse has already got the chillychuck invite out. bdga number could be a manditory field on the google form with http://bdga.org.uk/join-the-bdga in the help text (associate free!)

Seems fair enough to me. Want to play in a sanctioned BDGA event you must be a BDGA member, and oh by the way associate membership is free seems fair enough :)

I think we should definitely offer the five year deal again, no discount though. By taking the deal you insure yourself against future Pdga & Bdga rises.... Also, unfortunately the Bdga account does not earn interest. It is however free. There are alternative business accounts out there that pay interest. However the annual fees would cost much more than the interest earned and/ or they just have a two year deal
The Treasurerrer..... hic!

As a member of this, the younger generation. I would like to see more activity on the BDGA twitter page, tweeting is an amazing way to raise awareness etc etc #letsgetittrending #usetheinterwebs
