Will the construction get underway before the fundraising event on January 19 or after ? It will take a lot of hard work to get it completed for the Leigh game on March 17,good luck to everyone involved.

We really need people to get behind this dinner , batley regularly make a success of theirs and we badly need the supporters to make an effort to join in . I have sold a few tickets to non club men and i urge all who can attend to do so . If this is not a success it will be a right kick in the goolies .

Yes GFDU , BISSA have had 8 annual dinners , all a success,and generating a substantial profit. If you had other like minded people, like yourself, the Rams would have a successful squadbuilder association.

Unfortunatly 35 quid is alot of money to some fans when were in a recession and then you need drinks on top of that and no doubt theyl be a auction and things.... To some fans getting a season ticket and supporting the friendly games is the only thing they can do, especialy those not as well off and with families and morgages ect.. maybe we could have a stand donation at the fax game though for those who cant afford to attend due to the price but do have some money theyd like to donate?

That is a very fair point DTID but my reply would be that other clubs supporters manage to support their clubs functions and they surely on the whole cannot be generaly better off than our people can they . We still have the cheapest best value season tickets around but still some of our fans moan about the cost .
One bloke i was talking to the other day was complaining about admission prices yet he smokes £15 worth of cigarettes a day ,I understand it is difficult for a lot of people but the simple fact is that without supporters putting their hands in their pockets we will not survive .

I for one would like to attend, in particular to support these efforts. For a whole host of reasons I am unable to but this doesn't mean that I, and many others like me, am unsupportive.

Is there any other way to make a contribution to this effort?

For those that can't attend the dinner,we could have bucket collections around the ground at our two friendly games,so we could all say we have done something to contribute to the fund.We could even try to get Halifax and Bradford fans to give something,they like a good collection every now and then.

I agree that timing for this dinner is terrible. I was last paid just before Xmas and the next payday is Thursday 31st jan. Since then we have had xmas and the new year and I have just bought 3 season tickets. With this in mind £70 for a pair of tickets is a big ask.

You are seen as a club official be it true or not Keith, it really needs to be 100% independant from the club

Tom

I'm in a similar situation to BSJ - fact is my social life is largely on hold at the moment. If there is a special account for the project, I could drop off a cheque to the office on sunday - who would I make it payable to, to ensure it went towards the fund ? Also, although I contribute to DREMA and squadbuilder an amount I know I can comfortably afford, there are occasions when I have a bit of spare cash which I would be prepared to donate to squadbuilder on an ad hoc basis. Is there a facility for this.
