If applying for WSC Swimming Membership, please complete the attached / enclosed form fully and write “Watsonian Swimming Club” at the top, indicating on page 2 that you are paying the WSC annual fee of £77, but enclose a cheque for £87.00, payable to the Watsonian Swimming Club (NOT the Galleon). The WSC Treasurer will extract the Galleon fee of £77.00 and forward it to the Galleon.


Completed forms and cheques should be sent to reach the WSC Secretary, Alan Masson, by Saturday 26th August. Please try to meet this date as forms submitted afterwards may incur a delay in the membership card being issued and do result in extra work for the Secretary and Treasurer.


If applying for WSC Social Membership only, please complete the same form, marking it at the top: “WSC Social Membership” and insert only your basic information - name, address, telephone and e-mail (where appropriate), enclosing a cheque for £10.00, payable to the Watsonian Swimming Club.  


Please contact me if you have any questions about this procedure.
