Hi Chris and COG members--
We don't agree that this "must be the best bargain in town" as both Friends of Grasslands and Australian Native Plant Society are heaps cheaper, don't have the financial reserves that COG has, and importantly, they have concession categories whereas COG offers none.
We would like to see COG offer concession rates for Pensioners as no doubt many are like us (we're both full-time Carers for my elderly parents) and want to remain members of as many of our local natural history groups as possible. If all were charging $40 we would have to rethink which groups we can retain our memberships with.
Thanks and we do love being members of COG, despite the fact that at present we cannot attend meetings, camp-outs etc because of our Caring roles.
