I'm almost sure that the answer is no.
Besides, there's a club meeting next week (18th), so you can pass in BOTH at the same time and go flying on New Year's Day without worrying if it has been received.

Wouldnt it be cool if we could renew online, like with Paypal or something like that?
I know there would be small fee for the club when someone pays by paypal, but I dont think it would be that much.
Just looked it up, It come out to about $2.00 for a $60 open membership and about $1.20 for a $30 seniors membership.
Might be worth looking into.... :tu:

I don't mine to pay extra $2 or even $5. It is easy for us. 4 pcs of 3 x 32 bolt & nuts from Dubro is selling for $2.99 plus tas at A&J.

Max, that's for receiving the funds. You may also find that there's an additional charge for getting the money out of the PayPal account. Plus there's the 7/10-day "float" while the funds are not in the PayPal account and not in the club's coffers, plus exchange rate conversions (PayPal is based on US dollars.)
Good idea, but one that propbably won't fly. Debit cards are probably more acceptable to club members but it's not a free service for retailers (machine rental, monthly fees, fees per transaction), whcih is what the club would be classed as.
I have a feeling that most members will opt for cash-or-check.

Ah, too bad. I guess we'll stick to the old tried and true methods for now...
And besides, it got Parkson to the December meeting.. :tu: :tu: :tu:
