Hi David,

Per this:

"8.3.3. To be eligible to submit a score in the Affiliated Club 
Competition, operators must be members in good standing of the club 
designated, and reside and operate in the club territory as provided in 
8.4.1, 8.4.2, and 8.4.3. The Club Secretary or designated Club 
Scorekeeper for an affiliated club must submit a list of all club 
members eligible to compete for the club (not a club roster) and which 
level (unlimited, medium, local) they wish to enter for each competition 
within 30 days after the contest."

(from the same general rules), it's up to your designated club secretary
to enroll your club at the appropriate level.
