While there has been a steady flow of membership renewals, there are still many members who have not yet paid their 2017 fees.  For most members fees are due now, the only exceptions are those who joined the club for the first time during the course of 2016. In these cases renewals will occur on the anniversary date of that payment.

We strongly encourage you to pay online.  You should login first:

Your username is your email address, or the first part of it (the section before the @).  Your password is whatever you set up when you paid online last time. If you have forgotten it, click on “Forgotten your password?” to reset it.  You will need to enter a password which is rated either medium or strong – not your name or words in the dictionary.  There needs to be a combination of letters, numbers and other characters – inserting the # or & symbol in the middle of words usually does the trick. You will receive confirmation of your new password by email.

Once logged in, go straight to the SHOP, select the type of membership you want, then click on “Sign up now“.  Your name, address and order will appear and you just need to fill in your credit card details.  Remember to click on the “Terms and Conditions” button before submitting your payment.

If you prefer to pay by cheque, please make it payable to Illawarra Ramblers Inc., attach it to your completed Membership Application form and send to: Membership Secretary, Illawarra Ramblers Inc., P.O. Box 6112, Wollongong 2500. The Membership Application form is included in the printed version of the Summer 2016 Newsletter or can be downloaded and printed from the FORMS page on the website.

If you have any problems or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact either Penny Howes or Ros Tierney – or send an email to

Have a Happy New Year!  We look forward to seeing you on lots of activities during 2017.
