Hello Everyone, just a little about what the Guild is incase anyone would like to join.

It was set up in April 2011 with the idea of having 10 balloon days all over the UK, there are Seven "Care & Share" days and Three "Star Lecture" days which are filmed and a DVD is sent out to members, so even if you are unable to make all of the dates you get a flavour and a feel to what was taught. The cost for the year is £120 if paid by cheque/bank transfer. Credit card payments are £125 to cover admin fees. We are just setting up a monthly PayPal scheme to spread the cost over the year, as yet the fee is to be decided.

The Star Lecture days for 2011 were, David Brenion, Dennis Hogers and Ken Stillman.
For 2012 we had, Colin Myles and Shirley Ray. Patrick van de Ven and Ed Chee
For 2013 so far we have booked Antonio Becares Rodriguez.

The "Care & Share" days vary as sometimes we get a mystery lecturer and members also get up and show the latest creation they are working on.

The "Star Lecture" days are two day events with a care & share day first and the star lecture on the second day so if you do have to travel we find a cheap hotel and make it a mini convention.

Membership is open to all, UK and abroad and it normally takes 6/8 weeks from the star lecture day to send out the relevant DVD.
Pictures from the days can be seen in the events section.

There is a thread on the subject as well but be warned it is over 37 pages long, forum-balloon-club-idea-t3447.html
Any questions then please ask away,

TBAG MONTHLY PAYMENT PLAN

Dear All,

The next membership period for The Balloon Artistes Guild will run from 1st April 2013 to 31st March 2014. This year will be running a monthly payment plan to help members cover the cost of joining by paying £13-50 per month via paypal over a ten month period (total cost £135).

As this is a one-year trial, automatic subscription payments will not be possible as we do not want to setup a full paypal business account but will look to doing this if we get a large number of members.

So this is how it will work....

To join the scheme you need to make your first payment via paypal BEFORE 1st April by sending £13.50 to tbagpay@hotmail.com - so the tenth and last payment will be made in the month of December 2013.

You will receive a confirmation email asking you to supply further details (name, home address etc) to complete your registration. At the start of each month you will receive a reminder to pay your monthly payment and can complete your payment at anytime during that month. Any members who fail to make payment in any month will result in their membership being cancelled.

All other memberships can be purchased in the normal manner via Graham or in person at any balloon event. The prices are £120 for cash/bank transfer or £125 for paypal credit card.

All questions or queries relating to this payment plan ONLY should be emailed directly to tbagpay@hotmail.com

This scheme is kindly being offered by Graham on a trust basis and I am managing the payment process and accounts (for no financial gain and yes I will be paying for my membership!)

Can I just point out that the Exeter/Tiverton day on Wed 6th March is the last BAG day for 2012/13 and the Leeds day, Wed 20th March, Shirley Ray Deco/Twisting is the first day for 2013/14 although membership does run from 1st April. Because we had to fit 10 days in for Qualatex before the end of June this was the only way I could work things out, the basic day the day before Shirely on Tuesday 19th March is free to attend and is not an offical BAG day.
