Membership :

Dues: We had a problem with recurring payments to Paypal. It was brought to our attention that Paypal automatically charges next years dues without asking. We thought it was requesting follow-on membership. If you do not want this to happen, please cancel your current subscription at paypal and reapply with the new button in the club page. A new invoicing system is being researched and will be set up to alleviate this problem in the near future.

Donations: HCCC has recieved a few donations which help to make the site and club better. If you are not supporting the club with membership dues, please do your part by making a donation. See here for info.
