Well, actually, that's not the way it works. You *don't* need to register a
name before you can become a member. Milpitas doesn't care about that; they
only care that you pay the membership dues. You don't even have to fill in
that blank on the membership form if you don't want to.
You can use any name you want. It's just that if you choose a name that
someone else uses, you may precipitate confusion, embarrassment or downright
unpleasantness, depending on whose name you choose!
I'll let others better qualified give reasons why registering a name is a
good idea. Just don't let the lack of a registered name keep you from
participating! Go ahead and fill out that membership form, and tell them
any name you like!
