It has been decided to run the annual weekend trip to Scotland on Friday 5th March 2010 to Sunday 7th March 2010. Rangers play St. Mirren on Saturday 6th March so make a note in your diary. Costs have yet to be finalised, but we will start taking names from the start of the season.
We are replacing our normal weekly ballot with a new fund-raising idea “FIND THE JOKER”. There will be a deck of 52 playing cards plus THE JOKER placed face down in a lockable cabinet. Tickets will be sold as normal at £1 each, and the winner of each weekly draw will have a chance to turn one card hoping to FIND THE JOKER. The club is sponsoring the 1st prize for week 1 which will be £100. For each week the JOKER is not found the jackpot increases by £20. We need 40 members to sponsor this weekly increase of £20, so please contact the club treasurer to pledge your support.
It was decided at Friday nights committee meeting to hold future committee meetings on the 1st Friday of each month at 8pm. There will be normal weekly meetings for all other members on all other Friday nights at 8pm unless otherwise arranged. However, due to the timing of the start to the new season, the 1st normal weekly meeting for all members will be on Friday 7th August at 8pm.
A new Bar Committee was appointed at Friday nights club management committee meeting. The members are Jackie Murray, Nobby Davidson, John Vennard and Ralph Hewitt. This committee will cover all aspects of running the bar. Some members will be approached at the start of the season to allow their names to go forward to the match-day rota.
The recent redecorationof the clubroom has now been completed and ready for the new season. A new satellite system has been installed which will give us 3 Premiership/SPL games on a Saturday. Lets hope the members enjoy!!
