Sorry but I don't agree with that, full stop.
 If I volunteer to do something I am quite happy to cover my own expenses.
 I don't expect to have to pay to contribute to the organisation to help them.  :red card:

And that is why the proceeds from the 50/50 are woeful. A gate of over 4000 and a 50/50 prize either side of 200 on that day.

Sadly some people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Volunteers are worth their weight in gold so treat them accordingly rather than take the juice!

Do they Mall?
 I thought the reason the guy selling the 50/50 tickets stopped at 2.55 was because he had had to pay to get into the ground and intended to watch the game.

Happy to be corrected if wrong.

Local derby could be Boreham Wood in Hertfordshire?

Gordon.
 Rest assured that those of us who have been heavily involved as ' nuts and bolts' people at the Club in previous years know how much you both contributed financially and practically.
 Sadly it is the way of the world that those who quietly get on with the job are always under appreciated.

Dilly, I mentioned a marquee weekend not day. Is 14000 profit at 2006 prices to be sniffed at?
 It is all part of encouraging and allowing engagement by supporters by organising as many activities as you can. That is how you build the community involvement that is so lacking at the moment.

On a more positive note, several years ago a few Trust members put together a list of over 20 fundraising ideas ranging from selling seats on the team bus for away games through to the end of season marquee weekend at the Walks so the ideas are out there.

Sadly the Chapmans weren't interested in outsider involvement and obviously neither is Mr.Cleeve.

Mallard, your remark re previous business ventures probably sums up the attitude of the Town's business community towards the present owner.
 What goes round comes round.

And I know a very nice pub with rooms just outside Skipton which is only a few miles away. Got that pencilled in already.

I want to be the one eyed dinosaur ' Do-you-think-he-saw-us '.

But on a serious note, there is a wealth of talent and experience out there waiting to be given the chance to be involved with fundraising BUT if the owner doesn't want to let people in then it ain't gonna happen.

I think a figure of 14 grand was mentioned one year: raised from the sporting dinner with guest speaker on the Friday evening and a Northern Soul dance on the Saturday.

The marquee was then used for the end of season function on Sunday lunchtime

General Discussion / Next season start date
« on: June 19, 2020, 08:29:56 PM »
I read an item today which suggested that Sept 5th or 12th is being tentatively considered as a restart date for step 6 and above. There was no mention of whether supporters will be allowed into grounds at that time.
