PAYMENT OF MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTIONS SEASON 2018-2019
It is the start of the new season at Macclesfield Rugby Club and with that in mind subs are due to be paid from 1st September 2018.
The payment and collection of subs is critical for the club’s financial position. Your subs help pay for the basic running costs of your rugby club which includes everything from public liability insurance to cleaning and repairs and maintenance on the pitches and in the clubhouse. This year your subs include £10 of raffle tickets to be entered in the prize draw later in the season. The raffle is supported by the RFU with some great prizes.
We are blessed with some great facilities to support the development of rugby in our community and we have an increasing number of volunteers who support the club and the players across all age groups senior and junior whether it be by coaching or refereeing or painting and decorating or making sure the pitches are playable. Without the support of these volunteers the cost of running the club would be much higher.
Please can I encourage you to make sure your membership subscriptions are fully paid up from the 1st September 2018 using the various payment methods available. If you are a player you are not covered by the rugby club’s insurance in the event of injury and will not be available for selection to play. In addition, it is not fair on those players who have paid if others are allowed to continue playing without membership and insurance. Both playing and non-playing memberships carry certain benefit which are detailed on the club’s website and available from Jonathan Marsh (Club Administrator).
Because the timely payment of subs is so important to the club and in order to encourage more members to set up payment on time, we have introduced a more formal timeline as set out below:
- 1st September – Subs due
- 30th September – 1st reminder sent out
- 31st October – 2nd reminder with notice sent out
- 30th November – Final letter with notice of exclusion from club sent out
- 31st December – Exclusion letter sent out
If you have a problem with the payment of membership subscriptions either as a playing or non-playing member please contact your team captain or Jonathan Marsh who will try and resolve any issues. There are dispensations available for individuals who can only commit to a very limited number of games in a season.
Finally, if you know of any individuals or families across your network who might be interested in joining one of the most successful rugby clubs in Cheshire at both senior, colts and junior levels please direct them to our website or bring them down to the club to enjoy the atmosphere and hospitality.
Have a great season
