CUCPS Membership Cards

CUCPS membership cards are made from plain white card (slightly smaller than credit card size), and are edge-punched on a Facit 4070. Membership cards have the member's name and membership number printed on them; the membership number is in octal, with a single leading 0. More recent cards (since June 1997) have the Society's name printed on them as well, at the suggestion of Ian Jackson.

The format of the punched data on a card is as follows (read from left to right; the least significant bit is at the base of the card, with three bits below the sprocket holes and five above):

Membership cards are produced by the Junior Treasurer - nag him if you're a member and don't have one.
