Not sure if all Vic Members received this, but I got this from the club yesterday (not that it really matters):
Yeah got the same. Don't really care to be honest, wouldn't have cared if it said "you won't get it this year".

Also got an email inviting me to 'purchase' a $0 ticket to the Easter Thursday game as a VIC+ member. Thought about getting one for my mate (Essendon supporter) who lives up there, but thought better of it (and don't even know if one can transfer a members digital ticket to another person, unlike guest passes?).

Had a mate go into the club today because his tickets hadn’t come through for the first 3 games.
Ended up being a problem with his login details to his My Lions Account.
But anyway, when he was there he said that the phones were just going off non stop and they were running around like headless chooks trying to answer everyone’s questions and the wait was a looonng time to get his issues resolved.
Just need to remember that the club is very understaffed at the moment too due to staff cuts across the board.
Apparently there is a pretty big push to try and get that 35k membership number too.

Maybe someone could start an online petition, asking the club to scrap all the membership pack stuff, and just replace it with a commemorative “membership” card and lanyard.

I would much prefer that, to anything else in the membership pack.

I’m sure a lot of people feel the same.

The club is advertising on SEEK.com at the moment for admin staff to work in membership department of the club.

Personally I don’t give a rats asss about the useless trinkets in the membership packs. I want my membership card to go with my collection. How the #$$%%^ am I gonna make money on selling the collection with a missing card. My collection is now worthless. It's like having a Ming Dynasty vase with a chip on it or a Michelangelo statue with a missing appendage. Useless.

I think you can request for the trinkets not to be sent at time of renewal
Do you know where? I have been wanting to do this for a few years now as I just throw away most of it every year as well. Just give the option to pick up the odd new scarf or polo every few years and I'll be happy

I think it was a tick box on the membership renewal. I did it this year, we don't need these bits of tat cluttering up the house and ending up in landfill.

I hoard the packs for some strange reason - I don't even use the stickers. At the end of the season I carefully place the lanyard and the fridge magnet back into the packet and toss it in the cupboard.

Would be much better if they reserved the novelty items for the kids and just gave everyone else a Lions Shop voucher.

The member discount + the voucher + the birthday discount allowed me to get the reversible training guernsey for about $100 (incl. shipping). Definitely one of my better purchases and has been used extensively this pre season.

I'll take that chipped Ming Dynasty vase off your hands if you like.

Yes it is somewhere in your account at this renewal time
Just like you could request the lanyard but their was a time limit on these request
The problem is when renewals come around most people don't go into their account and see what you can do
You can't look too early or too late
The only way you will remember this is to put it in a Calendar/Diary reminder

You can still get say a cap plus lanyard with your $20 voucher
However without checking with the Lions Shop it may very well be a generic Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum card without your name on
You can always ring and ask.
Maybe someone on this forum can answer this question

Membership cards are heading the way of dinosaur, and appears to be the same for all clubs
The outlaws are Geelong members, they originally didn’t receive their cards this year, and after complaining were able to get them. Were told though, there won’t be any next year as they’ll be electronic only via smartphone

You can still get them but it will cost you $10.00

I asked on Tuesday and there were no cards in store.
