Looking forward to the season starting, so we can bitch and moan about the meagre on field performances rather than bumper stickers and fridge magnets.:rolleyes:
Yeah. It's minor sure, but you know what - unlike the season performances the membership pack and how we deliver membership services and seating is one thing completely and utterly in the control of the club itself. My view is that they would be well advised to do these things as well as possible. On field will vary, but off field is something they can be better and better at.

To be clear, I couldn't give two tosses what's in the pack for myself beyond a card that turns up before round 1 and has my seats correctly allocated. But the club isn't trying to impress me and should be trying to attract and retain supporters other than those of us who will sign up for years on end.

Damn sexy GR.

Any chance you could get down to the club and school them with your technical expertise?
Can he show them how to post a VFL match report on their own website 3 days later while he's at it?

Got the email to buy $15 upgrade seats today

Those who follow my dribble will know my experiences with upgrading my seats to find that I am sitting beside an opposition fan who is a North Member Friend

Has this been fixed in 2019?
When our reserved seat was on the flank we would always have opposition supporters around us, now we have moved to the wing it doesn't seem to be as much of an issue.

I am fuming. The club knows I've got a thing for Emma Kearney :coupleheart: so they got her to call me a few weeks ago to sign up as a member. I asked her if she came with the membership and she slapped me through the phone and called me a filthy pig, but that just made me love her even more. I ended up signing up for 10 memberships (love makes you do crazy things) and when the phone call ended I smoked a cigar. My wife asked me what I was doing but I just told her it was just North stuff.

Then they roll out this SEN cheap members pack again for the second year in a row. Talk about being used and abused. I literally have a broken heart at the minute. I am going to use those extra 9 seats to lie down and weep at our home games.

How relevant is the running total? Does it include members from last year who are presumed to be rolling over but have not paid yet? My own experience is that l'm invoiced but have not paid. So is that included?

Dunno about the technical questions but i like the running total as a way of comparison to past running totals, rather than just looking at how much we end up with at the end date.

I was walking yesterday with my little family yesterday in Rovaneimi (on the Artic Circle in Lapland, Finland) & was startled by an older woman suddenly screaming at us - Go the Kangas!

Given it was -19 when we got off the train, the roar from one of the faithful warmed by shinboner heart.

She then called to her husband - look Bert North fans. He grunted & she beautifully dismissed him by saying - don’t worry about him love, he barracks for Collingwood. We both laughed.

Member get member indeed.

Received my membership pack this week, wasn't as bad as I'd expected based on some of these posts. Stickers were good enough to swap out on my car, lanyard wasn't misprinted and the lack of plastic sleeve is no big deal. Fridge fixture is very average but it's just for the fridge & I generally use apps to track game times/coverage anyway.

If it saved the club a few bucks, then hey, no biggy.

this is the first year i've been able to afford anything other than a flexi membership of some description some years. So there were whole seasons in which going to see my team play just wasn't happening. I finally get to move from the GA to sit with members and actually feel like one myself. I haven't been more excited for a season based on that alone. Maybe this deal lets someone go to games when otherwise they would have no opportunity to do so. Maybe it actually does grow the base because they won't always be in that position. Maybe it isn't about diminishing the value of memberships, but if you feel that it is, then the deals are there for you.
There can be a catch to having reserved seats. In GA you sometimes sit next to a nuffy, but imagine getting plonked next to that nuffy for 11 games...whoops 8 games (thanks tazzy)

Sick next a nuffy? That's one way to get rid of them.

Probably the worst looking sticker since last year of the past 12 years on my cabinet; wait a minute it’s the same as last years with reverse colours...well there you go...tricksters!

Aww yeah ... it's as flash as a rat with a gold tooth but lacks that certain cheap and nasty charm of the one supplied by the Club's Membership Department. And besides yours doesn't have that cheap 'child choking' magnet 🤔🤔🤔

Everyone knows I'm the biggest apologist and flip flopper here simultaneously but yeah the last few pages are not a good reflection on the club at its community core.
