As previously posted, we are about to stock the shelves with some exciting new memorabilia. We want to encourage new members to the RFCA, so a two-tier memorabilia purchasing system will be introduced. There will be a generous discounted price for financial members but no discount for non-members, who will be required to pay full price. The price of each item will be promulgated when each item comes online for sale. Note that membership subscription is only $10 and you can apply to join on the front page of the web site.
The following items will be offered over a period of time, so as not to “flood” the market:
Car Stickers – These Stickers will differ from the window stickers we currently have. There will be 2 x White Crests on a clear background with the Assn Web Site predominant. They will be given to members – along with other memorabilia purchases. It was considered important to have our web site advertised in this way.
A Favoured Few – We have negotiated with a publisher to reproduce our history book “A Favoured Few”. There will be an affordable Soft Cover book and a Leather Bound Hard Cover book of the same quality as the original (this version will be expensive!). We will be printing 100 Soft Cover books and 25 Hard Cover books (of which 20 will be made available for sale). It is anticipated these will become a collector’s item.
RF Cadet Patch – Recently a Corps from NZ Army produced an embroidered patch and it sold very well. We have in our membership, and beyond, quite a few people who ride motorcycles and belong to clubs such as the Patriots etc. An embroidered patch can be sewn onto any garment and we think it will sell well.
Polo Shirts – These are available NOW in Black with either Red Trim or Blue Trim and sizes from Small to 5Xtra Large – except there is no 4xl!!! There is an alternative black Flinders Polo shirt available – same sizing and same pricing. To order, please email Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know the size you want and which trim colour you want or if you want the black Flinders polo. The cost to members is $40 (incl postage to NZ and Aust) and to non-members $50 (incl postage to NZ and Aust). Gordon will reply to your email and provide payment details.
Please do not order any of the memorabilia yet. When ready, we will advertise this on the RF Cadet Assn Website, Facebook group, the monthly blog, and in Class Facebook Pages that Gordon has access to. The costs will be advised then as well.
The Assn Committee would like an indication of interest in the memorabilia being offered – just so we know that we are on the right track. Please email Gordon at email@example.com and let him know your thoughts, or leave a comment in the box below.
