If you are already registered with another Club, as your ‘Longest Unbroken Membership’ club, then you do not need to pay the ASA Membership Fee through Bristol Masters (as long as it is being paid through the other Club). In this case, only the BMSC Membership fee is required. However, ALL members need to be registered with the ASA in either Category 1 or 2.

BMSC pays ASA Region and County fees from your subscription.
