Here's our latest offer for new members who sign up immediately ...

In addition to the benefits of supporting The Batavian and getting $298 in gift certificates to local businesses:

  • One lucky person will get a $25 gift card to City Slickers and a $20 gift certificate for Alabama Hotel. You must be the very next person to sign up for an annual membership on a recurring payment basis through PayPal (button below). Membership on this plan is $50.
  • One person who, using PayPal to sign up for a monthly membership on a recurring payment, will receive a $20 Alabama Hotel gift certificate. Note, if you're not the first you'll still get $298 in gift certificates to local businesses, and the expectation/request is that you remain a member for at least one year.
  • Two people who sign up for any annual membership plan will receive a $20 gift certificate for the Alabama Hotel (one each to each new member). If you plan to pay by credit card or check, e-mail at [email protected] If we receive your payment using the form below by Tuesday's postal mail (or you call in your credit card on Monday) we'll reserve the gift certificate for you. (Please note on your membership form which gift certificate you believe you qualified for.)

NOTE: I'll do my best to update this post in a timely manner to indicate which special offer(s) are sold out.

This is a bonus benefit on top of the $298 in gift certificates that can be used any time in the next year that each member will receive and the voucher for two free general admission tickets to a Batavia Muckdogs game (excluding July 3).

For the past three years, we've offered photos for sale through one particular site and a couple of months ago, we started selling photos through my photography site, howardowensphotography.com.

That is working pretty well, so I'm retiring the old photo sales site (so I no longer have to pay the hosting bill).

It would be a monumental task to transfer three years worth of photos from one site to another. So to ensure everybody who still might like to buy photos from the past three years a chance to buy those photos, I've drastically reduced their prices.

Click here to buy photos from the old site at ridiculously low prices. These photos will NOT be available for purchase after Jan. 31.

Of particular interest might shots from this past football season:

Our gift certificates can't be traded for cash, but in the local businesses that have agreed to honor them, they act just like cash -- saving you money. Currently, members can expect to save at least $255 at local businesses in the coming year as members. The cost of membership: Only about 1/5 of what members get in savings.

We now have enough local businesses supporting The Batavian Club to say that members will receive $250 in gift certificates with their membership cards (we're targeting the end of January to send out cards and gift certificates).

Based on some feedback, we're also creating a way for people to join through PayPal without making a recurring payment commitment. If you want to join, but don't want to commit to an annual payment, the fee is $60 (or $120 for a household membership) and you can use the PayPal buttons below. The price for people joining and paying by check will also now be $60/$120.

To be clear: For $60 (or $120 for a household), you can receive in return $250 in gift certificates that can be used at local businesses. That's a pretty good return on investment ...

I'm hoping to announce the participating businesses within the next week after I have a chance to -- I hope -- sign up a few more.
