Hey, Mike, you wrote, “The rate for Attending Membership in Corflu 34 goes up on January 1. The news release doesn’t say what it will rise to, you’re supposed to take the hint and join today so you never need to hear that stunning number.” Did you not read the second sentence of the paragraph following what you wrote?
“The new rate for an Attending membership will be $115(US) and £90(UK).”
That sentence gives the rate it will be starting January 1.
No, I didn’t read it. Although I didn’t read it in a very peculiar way, which involved rereading your email looking for that information, because I was sure you couldn’t have left it out.
Every time I came to the sentence listing the current rates, I skipped right to the end of the paragraph, having unconsciously decided it was one long list of assorted current rates.
