How to join

It’s easy to join (or renew your membership) online by filling out the online membership form. If you have any questions please contact Jean Keenan on

Member Application | Member Renewal

New members pay an annual fee of R170/ person or R230 for the whole family. Both costs include a once-off R50 entry fee.

Annual membership renewal is R120/ person or R180/ family.

An additional R20 processing fee is charged for cash or cheque payments. EFTs are preferred but please include your name as a reference.

The club tries to keep membership fees to a minimum and these just about cover the cost of running the annual shows. Donations are gratefully received.

If you prefer to complete the form offline, you can print it, fill it out manually, then scan and email to
