That is correct. It runs from 1/1 to 12/31. It is the reason we pack so much into every quarter, for those that might join late. Between contests, events, special attractions, etc we try our best to make sure each member has plenty to signup for. This week and next are big ones with an event, Holiday Grab Bags and of course THP Holiday Cheer.Holy cow. I joined the 2018 albatross club in either Aug or September of 2018. Am I reading correctly that regardless of when you joined it expires 12/31/18?
