The Guild is a “Membership by Invitation-Only” organization. This means that every Guest who attends an event or Member who joins the Guild must be sponsored by, and receive an invitation from a Member in Good Standing. In addition, to become a Member, a double opt-in on the Guild website, and an affirmation process with all Members is required. This time-honored tradition ensures the continued success of our “friends invite friends” process that has enhanced our like-minded Membership and the camaraderie of the group since 1972. Although we take great pride in the service and conveniences that the Guild offers, the Guild’s most valuable asset is its Membership.

If you wish to attend as a Guest, PM me. After the customary one week Member response period, Guest are accepted.
