Two down on last season for a start. Family membership is for 2 adults and 2 kids, whereas I need it for 1 concession and 3 kids. The 2 youngest grandkids have other commitments and hardly ever come, but I always got them season tickets so they would feel part of the club. I believe they were counted in the attendance figures for every match, even when they didn't turn up, but since then I have turned 60 and can't afford to pay more than twice what it would cost me for myself (concession) and the eldest grandson (junior), so the Rovers could end up losing 2 potential future adult supporters.
I hope that I'm wrong, but I can't check in the brochure because every time I try to download it my computer freezes.

Steve,
Why not just buy one concession membership and 3 Buccaneer memberships? The 3 will cost you £105 plus whatever membership level you decide to buy? That should work out a lot cheaper than the family package. I'm at the shop today from 10 so give the office a ring if you want me to go through the options or give Veronica a ring in the week and we will sort out the best package for you

Got to say, Family memberships leave me cold. If your family doesn't match the club's view, they're no good to you. Better to have a "build your own family ticket" with a quantity discount.

What I'm saying Phil is that it's not worth buying Buccaneer memberships for the youngest two because they hardly ever come due to other commitments on a Sunday. Last year I got the first two for a fiver and the third for a tenner. That was worthwhile for them to feel part of the club, but I can't afford to pay £70, so I won't renew. Is there still a package for 1 adult and 2 kids like last year? If so, there should be a package for 1 concession and 2 kids, otherwise this would be discrimination on grounds of age! Even if it's 2 and 2, concessions should be allowed in this package because it is possible to father a child over the age of 45!

As far as i know there isn't a package for 1 adult and 2 kids. I am only going on the information i have. As far as juniors getting into away games on the season ticket is concerned i am sure they can but i would confirm it with the club.As for 2 concession 2 kids again i would check with the club.

I don't know about Korea, it looks like you have made a career of matrimony. Give it up you have no time to go to matches. Incidentally if your gardener is from North Korea I should watch my china.

Phil,
There was a package for 1 adult and 3 kids lat year, it cost me about £145 (whatever last years adult season ticket was) plus £5 each for the first two and £10 for the third, so I think it cost £165. If the club are not repeating this, I fear they will lose out in attendance numbers when they are trying to achieve the 2,500 average criteria, or have the goalposts moved again?
Regarding a family membership pack for the over 60's, I feel I need to contact the club on the grounds of age discrimination.
