Membership.

 

We’ve decided to go with the following membership.

 

·                1 year’s full membership for $12.00.  (now till 30 June 2018)

Annual Membership will run from July one year to June the next, with this year’s annual membership now expiring in June 2018. As we’ve said, full membership is not compulsory, you can still receive the RAM which will remain open, free and available on the net.
