I agree, its an awful lot of money.

In addition to this, why a non league club would want a black tie dinner rather than a more informal event, I don't know. Just my opinion though............ I suppose its each to their own.  :dontknow:

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:

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:

Sadly not what I was expecting. Last time I went with Err in Doors, was 2004 and the marquee on the pitch. Tickets cost £30 a head and cost me about £200 for the night with drinks and taxis, but with a 3 course meal, auction, raffle, comedian and footie speaker and was an absoluetely fantastic evening.
The last meal I had at DHH last year was poor. Warm would have have made it almost edible and now £130 a head for a meal and a half bottle of vino and an auction and raffle. For me and Err in doors with formal hire, and new frock for the missus, tickets, spending money, taxis thats about £600 at the cheapest for a pretty dull sounding evening.
Sadly, will give that a miss, even though Tax deductable.

Will players and staff be buying their own tickets? :dontknow:

Maybe it's designed more to attract would be investors and new wealthy interest, than the average punter (?)
Something more informal, may also be arranged

Keep up Grissles.
The Chairmans vision will not be realised, by a few oik's having a Mead & Turnip night in the Blue & Gold. Mark has been given a job to do, and this is the first step. Other non league clubs have such nights. So why not Lynn.  The 4000 York gate will have opened up a few eyes, to the riches, which may be on the path to the promised land. The majority of Owners who embark on this path, are not bothered if some fans are left behind, as others will be prepared to pay more, to take their place. It happens from the Premier League downwards. If promotion is achieved you can expect all match day costs to rise, even with or without revenue from television. It will be a necessity to match the big hitters above.
Enjoy it while you can Griss. :cheers:

#Make Lynn Great Again
