Got the mercury issue 50 today! The joy!!!! The deep heartbreak! The end of an era indeed. How sorry I am to see the end. Oh well, of course all good things come to an end eventually. Its a universal truth that cannot be denied.

At least there is a happy side that the club will rise from the ashes like a phoenix to continue on. I hope to continue my membership, and hope to get to as many events as my work, family, finances and general lack of time will allow.

All the best

Continue on? Of course! Said rising from the ashes is already well underway, with the book launch in less than 2 weeks, and at least 2 further club events already in the pipeline for 2009....

Onwards and upwards!

Fear not brave sprouts, the club continues Thumbs Up There will be much more news on this at the book launch party and in the first issue of the new club magazine, out between end feb/mar 2009, and I think (hope) there is nothing but good things to tell.

I'm a sort of phantom member. I enjoy the magazines, but I'm not able to join in any events. I look forward to seeing the new look club mag etc. Although I'm sure my membership must need renewing. How can I check?

Anyway, I'll be watching for any updates.

[edit]

I just dug out my newbie questioning about joining. It was on the 13th December '07. So I do need to renew. Should I wait till the launch of the new club now?

As a rule they'll tell you when you're due renewing.

It depends whether there were any issue 47s left when you joined. If you got that one, 50 will be your 4th, and you'll be due to renew. If not, you'll still be due one more issue.

If I can get my act together, the new site will make it much easier to tell when you're due to renew, as you'll be able to log in and see what issue you're a member till.

But more about that in due course.

Hi,

Received mine and seeing the itinerary for the weekend finally pushed me into attending so I've ordered the T-shirt and ticket and it sounds like it is going to be a wicked weekend. I'm quite shy thus if anyone wants to take me under their wing I'd be grateful and once I get acquainted I'm nice and jolly. And bonus I live just up the road from Brentford which means easy staggering distance after the party/orgy/celebration.

Looking forward to it a lot now.

See you on 9th 10th and (if I'm still alive) the 11th.

Bryan

Nothing here either, just checked my Paypal account and I paid on the 18th of September. Still can't see the elusive members area either.
