As I have said before, we have been amazed at the response that so many people have made to the Steam Car Club. I have been checking up on the applications that have been made to me. On top of that there have been other applications from our friends in America & the antipodes. It looks like we're up to 150 paid up members in our first three weeks. If that's not an expression of support I don't know what would be!
We have also been looking at our costs of running the club - the magazine, insurances, affiliations, postage, stationery, web delivery, etc. It looks like we break even with 140 members.
So, let's not belittle the generous donations we've received, but we are up & running just on the basis of our normal membership subscriptions. We are solvent for the year on our new members who have enrolled in the last three weeks. Isn't that a fantastic result?
You will be pleased to hear the April magazine has gone to press. 48 pages. We never did more than that when we were SCCGB. So you'll have twice as much, counting your established SCCGB magazine. I'm looking forward to it - even if I'm about to get a bit of flack from some quarters.
I would also like to say a big thankyou to all the contributors who have come up trumps with their contributions to the SCC magazine. Not forgetting Jeff for putting it all together. And, of course, the website is looking great!
