I'm afraid he's correct on this one. Right at the
top of the SCA membership form
(http://www.sca.org/members/us-mem-form.pdf) it says:
Sustaining: $35.00 - Subscribing membership; Includes a subscription to your
Kingdoms newsletter via 3rd class postage.
In the online membership form
once you enter your name and address, the next screen says:
Sustaining Membership: $35.00 / year
A subscribing membership for those served by U.S.
Postal Service. Sustaining members receive a
subscription to their Kingdom's newsletter via
3rd class postage, and are eligible to hold
office and any other privileges designated.
But I agree that using "subscribing" and
"sustaining" interchangably is kind of confusing.
