    Seems a bit stupid to have their meeting in November? Wouldn't you have that kind of meeting in the middle of the year to give yourself time to prepare and advise member etc?

    The problem is they don't have any competition so they can treat everyone however they like.

    well in my thinking when they did the new fee structure for the half year set up- they would have had to have worked out the fee structure for this year....

    but yes- why are they doing it so late?? this should be the most important thing for them? no members no EWA?

    This time every other year they are putting notics out saying membership is due and please hand you performance cards in so we can get them back to you. This year zippo.

    Has anyone put there cards in yet seeing as the last half year was no points?

    i joined for the 6months this year and have already done my entries for the Twighlight Series as im in pony classes and theres limited numbers.

    Babe your EFA number doesnt change if you dont want to miss out you could always do a sneeky and just enter and then renew before the event :))

    Good for you getting in early **) but I can't see how they can or should be accepting a entry without a 2011 membership.

    Also I think for the ones that didn't join for 6 months (pick me!!), then you can't put an entry in for a competition. Well now saying that maybe you can cause who cares seems to be the go!!!! *#)

    Maybe you should enter now EC.

    Its not just about the twighlight comp its about any comp where entries close early Jan. How do you enter if you dont have a 2011 membership- sigh :eek:

    Just had a look on Global entries at the classes I was considering doing.
    One class is almost full. Sadly it looks like I'll be missing out as I won't enter without knowing the new membership fees.
    If they want early entires then they should advise members of the fee structure early.
    An other classic example of how disorganised our EWA is #(
    Think I'll be sticking to pony club run events.

    I am sure, as always, it will have fallen on deaf ears.
    Their dodgy antics earlier this year had me report them to the Consumer Protection Watchdog, as their forms clearly stated "Membership 2010/2011" and yet when members were sent their new cards, it was THEN made clear that it was 6 month membership only. That is illegal..... Not to mention a pretty fundamental bloody mistake!

    So, lets start taking bets on how long the handbook will take to be issued!

    Hey Heif,

    The handbook will probably be in the next antique road show.....*#)
