    I'm not planning on joining, but when I went into the 'join us' tab the prices showed up in dollars. When I came out and went back in again (possibly via a different screen) it showed up in pounds. Btw, American customers are getting better value as ...

    Hi Harry, I remember talking to you at the FoW last year and you brought up this 'subscription model' and phasing out of the WC as something that was on your mind, so it didn't come as such a shock to me as it perhaps did some of the others ...

    I suppose we'll all just have to Keep Calm and Carry On until more info/detail is forthcoming from the 'powers that be'... Oh well, back to editing! I'm only on my MS's 13th re-read, give or take :-)

    I'm still in two minds about York this year. I wonder if/how the price will be affected for non-Jericho members. When do they normally announce ticket info?

    I remember Harry talking about the possibility of moving to a subscription model at York last year, so it's not a total surprise that this is happening. I wonder what kind of interest Jericho will have initially - I'm sure they've done their market ...
