How to Join Staffordshire & Shropshire Land Rover Club and Off Road Club
Staffs & Shrops LRC offer three types of membership, and renewals fall on 1st January and 1st July annually.
If you are unable to pay for membership by PayPal please contact the Membership Secretary Jonathan Lloyd – details can be found under Committee Contacts.
Full Membership – £25 per year for a new member, and £23 for a renewal *
A full membership allows you to enter all event types held by S&S, any other ALRC or MSA registered club. You will receive the club magazine ‘Talegate’ through the post, and you will have full voting rights at the club’s Annual General Meeting usually held in January or February. They are also entitled to a copy of the ALRC Handbook (Green Book) available by contacting the club secretary.
NB; members who intend to drive in Comp Safari must also hold a MSA Competition Licence – Non Race Clubman or above.
Second Membership – £17 per year *
A second membership is for spouses, partners, or children who need a full membership card (ie. to drive in RTVs, CCVs and Comp Safaris, or sit in on a Comp Safari) that live at the same address as the full member. They have all the same rights as the full member, but will not receive a copy of Talegate.
Family Membership – Free of Charge
A family membership is for spouses, partners, or children who do not need a full membership card (ie. to drive a TYRO, or sit in RTV’s and CCV’s) that live at the same address as the full member. These members receive a Family Membership Card, but have no voting rights at the AGM.
Staffs & Shrops Off Road Club Membership
Please note that all full and second members are eligible to become members of Staffs & Shrops ORC (allowing them to drive non ALRC vehicles at open events held by ALRC clubs) free of charge upon request.
