15/4: Olympin Collectors' Club - Special Offer

The team that run the Olympin Club have made a very special offer to UK pin collectors and readers of For a limited time they are offering a 2-year discounted membership to the club which offers
  • Quarterly Newsletter featuring memorabilia news, club features and announcements
  • Annual member directory listing contact details for every member along with their collecting specialties to help with trading
  • Annual membership pin, which for the next 2 years will feature the London 2012 logo.
The Olympin club has worked with the US Olympic Committee and approached LOCOG in order to get permission to use the logo. That makes these club membership pins official London 2012 pins to be included in the catalogue.

Here is an image of the 2011 pin. The 2012 pin will also contain the London 2012 logo.

The normal cost of a one year membership to the club is US$25, but the offer to UK readers of this website is US$35 for the 2011 AND 2012 membership years. So, if nothing else, you would be getting the 2 club pins for a little over £20. This offer is available until 9th May 2011. The offer may be extended or the price may be increased, but they guarantee, this is the lowest price that this offer will be. Please note this offer is to UK residents only.

To take up this offer, you need to
a) Complete a member details sheet which will form the basis of your directory entry
b) Pay the one-off subscription by Paypal.

To complete the member details sheet, click here to open a template from Google Docs and follow the instructions on the first page.

I've tried to create a template based on Olympin's paper form, so if there are any problems, drop me an email and I'll try to fix it for you.

Member's who join before the 9th May, will be included in the 2011 directory and should see their membership pins dispatched in May.

I'm not receiving any payment from Olympin or any free pins for advertising this offer. It's a genuine use of the website to promote a society that may be of interest to London 2012 pin collectors.
