The George Strait Fan Club has decided to make changes to our membership structure. Effective, Nov. 30, 2012, the fan club will no longer offer memberships by mail. Our membership base has become increasingly an on line membership and we will continue to work in that manner. Beginning on Dec. 1st, we will no longer offer new $25 mail memberships or renewals. The last printed newsletter will be the Sept./Oct/Nov. 2013 issue. After that date, all newsletters will be issued only to members with on-line memberships. The percentage of mail memberships has become smaller each month, while our email memberships continue to grow. This includes all foreign memberships as well.
In addition, beginning on Dec. 1st of 2012, we will no longer fill merchandise orders for foreign customers with the exception of Canada. The paperwork and shipping costs have become so outrageous and time consuming that it is no longer feasible. For our Canadian friends, we would like to let you know that we must have a physical address in order to ship your packages. We only ship by UPS and they cannot deliver to P.O. Boxes.
We have also decided on our Christmas Holiday schedule. The Fan club will close for its regular Christmas and New Years break on Dec. 21st and will reopen on January 3rd of 2013. All orders placed before Dec. 20th, with the exception of backorders, will be shipped before we close. Any overnight orders placed on Dec. 20th will be shipped on the 21st. All other orders placed after Dec. 19th will not be shipped until we return from the Christmas Break.
We sincerely hope that you and your family have a wonderful and Merry Christmas season and we look forward to serving you in 2013.
