Have you had this confirmed, DH? The way I read the Recreational membership it doesn't give you access to any competition run by EWA affiliated clubs. The Senior membership lets you enter EWA affiliated and official comps, the Associate EWA non-graded events but the Recreational is silent. This suggests to me that you couldn't go to anything run by an EWA afffiiate club? Be good to get some clarification on this as $205 for the recreational membership is good value and could be ab option for a lot of our members.
