Anyone going?
Please support any events put on to help the club.
Or just sit back and say the friends do nothing to try to raise funds.  :welcome:

And do nothing for the fans :cheers: :cheers:

I take the point and would agree that it would be great if events were well supported but maybe bands are not the thing people want to support?  Hopefully a change in genre will provide a change in fortunes but if not then maybe alternative events are the way to go.  Appreciate it is still a bit 'chicken and egg' - the FotL needs to expand it's membership / relevance but without successful, well attended events, whether they be band nights, quizzes or whatever, it will struggle to do so.  Unfortunately the current financial situation for many households, that is only likely to get worse during next season, isn't really going to help things.

I agree, its a difficult one. All the Fotls committee can do is to keep trying.

As you mention, the current financial situation won't help. I believe it could well have a bigger impact on people's lives in the coming months than some currently  realise.

Hopefully these events are well attended and people such as John are supported in their efforts. If that's not the case, I don't think it can just be put down to people not supporting the Club. Many will have more important things on their minds at the moment.

In fairness it seemed that when Malc took over as Chairman it seemed like a new, forward thinking FOTL was upon us.  Since then its been a bit of a damp squid.  Even a basic thing like an online membership was beyond them, this despite several assurances it was on its way.

Can we just concentrate on the coming event and discuss the FOTL somewhere else, trying to put a positive across here! :banghead; :banghead;

John, what you are attempting to do is very positive, and you know I wish you every success with it.

TONYM  there are no exact choice of genre, music, etc. But being a member of a regular social club involving live music, this is definitely the best choice out there to get punters in...they have a hard core off  followers and guarantee a decent turnout.. Well done everyone involved 👏👏👏

Sorry to disappoint Mallard,the guy who was dealing with the online membership left the comeittee,as soon as I can get it arranged it should be on the club page! Until then if people wish to join they will have to to do it the old fashioned way,fill in a form and either post it or hand it to a committee member.If needs be I can post a form to people with a stamped addressed envelope or possibly walk to their home? :sad: :sad: :sad:

John. Wroxham is a long way to walk.   :laughcry:

If you undertake that, would you like me to sponsor you?   :laughcry:

Appreciate we all have different tastes, I wouldn't imagine we would pack out the B&G with my choice of music and pleased to hear that you think IV Geezers are a good choice and should get a crowd in which is what we would all like to see.  I guess this is the sort of band we are looking for with their 'own' following rather than having to rely on FotL members, hopefully those who go will enjoy themselves and the B&G can become a viable venue on the local music scene.

Other genres are being looked at for the future,what is your particular taste Tony? :cheers:
