I am vague on the dates of this version of the membership card to be honest. I think they introduced them after nearly losing their licence one time. I never actually used this card because i had long stopped visiting as a punter. Also I was actually barred from the Hacienda for a while. This was slightly inconvenient because i was actually in the employment of Factory at the time so needed to cross the threshold of the place to go to work once in a while. It all stemmed from a small 'disagreement' with the 'Head of Security' about what constitutes 'respect'. I have a feeling i was given this card in some sort of bizzare ritual where no-one lost face, i got to go work unmolested and the 'Head of Security' could claim a tiny victory over the poor sods at Factory who lined his pockets. Anyway - he is no longer with us and i still have the card and a funny story to tell - so in the game of life i guess that makes me the winner doesnt it?
