|For the same reason that we ask you to make a check payable to our Membership Secretary personally, rather than to "C&C 27 Association".
Because anti-money-laundering rules and regulations have made it prohibitively difficult and expensive for a small group like ours to have a bank account in our own name, let alone an on-line payment system. Ask anyone who handles money for a club, church group or similar. We'd like to do these things, but we'd have to double our rates, which would be self-defeating.
Thank you for your understanding.
