Sports Club Annual Subscription

The old school Sports Club emailed the annual membership application to me the other day. It's increased by a fiver; not too bad.

I'm too prompt a payer for my own good - as Ebay sellers shall testify - and last year, as usual, I remitted the fee well in advance only to discover, subsequently, that the complex was closed till further notice. In fairness to them, I received a rebate; however, my old swimming compatriot, Robert - retired solicitor you know - is a slightly more tardy payer than me and hadn't the bother.

I've learned the lesson: I'll withhold payment till the opening night in order to ensure that the place is open. It's the only way.
