Bravo Nicolas !

To the Management Team it also raises a wider issue. Now that SOTA is spreading to more and more countries, perhaps we need to consider an easier system of payment for certificate and trophy claims. Providing a cheque drawn on a UK bank is not an easy task, and the costs involved in obtaining a bank draft or something similar are out of all proportion to the generally fairly small remittances. Other organisations use PayPal, or something similar. Perhaps we could investigate its potential for SOTA.
