New membership options

At the Exec meeting following the last Congress in 2014 it was agreed that we would introduce a partial years membership option so members joining the BDA from 1st August onwards would pay a reduced rate of £20 for the remainder of the year instead of having to pay the full year rate of £35 regardless of when they join.


We have since agreed to a reduced Jniour partial year rate of £15, rather than the full year rate of £25.


This reduced rate entitles the applicant to the full range of member benefits including personal insurance cover etc.


All racers, helms & drummers taking part in any BDA race events need to be BDA members, and the day membership option of paying £5 on the day can only be used once per person per membership year.


We would strongly encourage all club members to take out BDA membership due to the benefits this entitles them to including personal insurance cover while racing and also while training.


I have updated the membership form to include these partial year options.
