returning member questions

Have re-registered as a member after a few years away from the club and have a few questions.
1-Got the gate combo but do I get a key or are all locks on combinations.
2-Do I get or print out somewhere a member card or is this no longer required.
3-Re-activated my old MACC number which you have on file. Got my wings about 10 years ago and still have my pin, but, in my profile it says unknown, how do I change this?
Thank's for your support.

Hi Paul - welcome back.
1) no key - all locks the same combo- check the Field Status page.
2) no membership cards
3) if your skills and MAAC rules knowledge are current, let me know and I will update your status. Otherwise best to have a short session with an instructor.

Thank's Michael for your reply.

Went to the club this morning around 11 am, gate closed and locked.
Tried the combination listed on the web site but did not work, no one seemed to be there so I went back home. Maybe I did not line up the numbers correctly and after reading the procedure for opening the lock it seems that the numbers must be aligned at the very top of the pad lock and not in the middle as I was doing. If that is correct please confirm if not please advise where the numbers should be.

As for my skills and MACC rules I am up to date with both, been flying in real flight simulator for many years to keep up my skills and, got to read all of MACC's current rules and literature online. Besides that the plane that I intend to fly for now is a hobbyzone carbon Cub S+ 1.3M that has GPS, SAFE+, 3 flight modes and an auto land feature if I get in trouble. Seems like if I cant fly this thing I must be a real Dummy :-)
Anyway, yes please up date my status to Solo Planes.

Thank's
