Yes, you need to a member of a club or you will be forced to pay an "unattached" rider fee. I say forced beacuse there is not a rule in the rulebook that states promoters must charge this fee.
Yes, your jersies must have sleeves, and do not show up with a jersey of a pro team, the polka dotted jersey, a world champion jersey, or any jersey that you would have to earn to wear.
