I would say myself that it is a bit pricey

But also have to ask Griss , the last three events at the B&G have been free entry and you didn't go to any !!

Also I think you may discover it was not Mark who set the price either !!


I presume by the last three events at the club you are referring to the meet and greets? These were not actually free but very reasonably priced,I would have happily have gone along if the silly thing called work hadn't got in the way,hopefully shifts will fall right for the next one,a repeat of the curry would be welcomed. I do try to attend things when possible,I even attended the bingo nights that the friends put on,also there for the quiz night too. As with all events I attended I spent well on raffle tickets etc,and tried my best to put money over the bar. I think you will also find that unless there is a function after a game or I need to go to work you will find me putting my hard earned into the till for more beer, more often than not the last one to leave! :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

P.S. you say that you heard Mark didn't set the price? Was this from an official source or just rumour? :dontknow:

If you take into account that the venue will hold between 150 and 200 people that would mean takings of between 19,500 and 26,000. Take out the costs and there will be a healthy profit,a profit that he couldn't hope to match by making presentations at the club? :bankrupt:

Perhaps it is priced that high and made a black tie event to keep the oiks away who pay week in and week out to watch the team! Will the presentations be there or not? If yess it is a sack in the face for the normal fans! :red card:

Starting to think the omens are against us.   Another long midweek haul to come, added to what is becoming an overcrowded fixture list.  Was it IC or SC who ran over that black cat ?

Have a funny feeling this time next week York will be two points ahead of us with Boston just a single point behind.
Have you thought of becoming a motivational speaker, Mallard?
Think mallards the type of bloke to wait until happy hours over before entering the pub
Cmon mallard none of this doom n gloom were in a great position and IC will know how to motivate
the lads ( if needed) for the up coming games  , Im sure come next Saturday well all be singing from the same page  :scarf:


Singing some from the same page,but not in the same place,Stan will be singing along to the homepage and Nick from the footpath. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

100%  agree dillydilly - if it is called off I hope the rest of the league games are as well  so we don't have an even bigger back log of games compared to the rest - feel for the chairman having to fund the wages with no income  but safety comes first.


Hope he has some to come back via Gloucester? :dontknow: :dontknow: :bankrupt:

I think the last quiz was a Trust/FOTL collaboration? :scarf: :scarf:

Griss, the last Quiz was a Trust event, with the co-operation of the Chairman.


Well maybe the next one could be a joint venture? Far bigger circle of volunteers to help with raffle prize contributions etc? Could pave the way for many other joint ventures? :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

I'd be in favour of retro shirts and it is a big and popular business now. I guess the problem, as for all merchandising for lower and non league clubs, is economy of scale with the purchasing. Would the club be able to justify buying enough to make the price attractive for them and us? Maybe something for Mark H to look into.

Maybe if a small shirt printing business could be linked up with then some one or two off retro shirts could be reproduced?

I didn't win the last one, contrary to all that is said I'm not a know all.   :sinking: :laughcry: :laughcry: I think there are a few who would like another one, the last one I believe raised nearly 500. :scarf:
