I joined the club in 2003 because I liked the club tartan
(I was looking for a kilt back then) and didn't expect much else from the membership. I got the welcome package (shirt, coaster) and communication with Linda van Weenen for buying the kilt was quick and friendly - so no complaints there.
In 2007 I received a club-email stating that Linda was in bad health and therefore Bob and Linda couldn't continue with running the club and were seeking new people to run the club.
When I next checked the web site
this year, it apparently had gone in the hands of domain grabbers, so for all I know, the club is no more. From my point of view, it wasn't a rip-off in 2003, but for people who paid their "lifetime membership" fee in 2006/07 this might look different...
