Is there an argument for the Main Committee, who we select to steer the Club for us, to consider market forces?
We have a Waiting List of over eight thousand people who are prepared to pay an Entry Fee of triple the sub (£4,500) and an annual sub of £1,500.
We have Absent Members who, mostly, do not use the Club but want to retain their ability to revert to being Full Members.
The cap on Membership numbers is supposed not to exist but, in some form or other, it does.
So it is essentially a “one out so one in situation”.
Market forces would be one way of determining the ‘fair’ Absent Member discount.
Some might even argue it is more democratic and less focussed on entitlement and priviledge?
Notice the question marks!
