You have a very viable point there Equalizer I haven't been in the South Stand Bar as yet but your right the queue for a drink in the main bar is to say the least unreal not enough pumps or staff to cope bet It's bad for a sportsmans dinner with big drinkers.

I really hope the loss of the sponsorship monies doesn't create Dewsbury to many financial problems. The last thing rugby league needs is the loss of such a traditional club.

Good luck in securing new funding and for the season barring of course this Sunday.

Good fans are the Dewsbury folk.

PS please make sure Roger the Ram comes over to Leigh Sports on Sunday.

I can't remember how many times I have fancied a halftime pint only to be faced with a queue that sent me back to the terraces. I believe the pro drinkers deliberately miss the last 5 mins of the first half in order to get to the front of the queue. I know we can't all be served at once but surely there's something that could be done. Every pint NOT sold is revenue lost.
Is it possible/legal to pre-pull pints? Surely most orders are for a pint of lager/bitter, you'd soon work out how many to do. How about rounding up/down the prices to make change a bit quicker too (are you really bothered about 6 or 7 pence?)
As for opening the Southstand bar after the game... I agree with equalizer, it would need to be made a bit cosier, but might work - especially in the summer.

At most theatres you pre-pay your drinks for the interval, so yes it is legal to do it. It is quite simple, just pull 10/20 pints of lager and bitter in advance or pre-sell for half-time and have them all pulled and pre-paid. And for those who insist on a freshly pulled pint they can queue up.

It just takes some initiative, even if you throw a few pints away, you make more overall.

And to those fans who park on the road or have their pre-match pint elsewhere just park in the ground £20 for whole season and drink at the ground. Every bit helps the club.

Decent beer although its not about the Huntsman or H.H its about the Rams selling more beer.

Maybe HHWMC and Huntsman are relevant as one sells cheaper beer and one sells better quality beer, so people would choose to drink at those two establishments due to one of those reasons

Aye - and the dream is the lower bar turned into a cosy little real ale pub selling ossett brewery beer served up by nigella lawson (or a lady with similar qualifications), kevins pork pies on the bar and with reruns of match highlights of cuurent and past matches on the telly - problem is, if I went in I'd probably never come out again. :o

If you want to help support the club, drink in the club's bars. It is a rugby club and not a pub so will never sell the best range of beers etc..Every pound more spent at the club helps. It is only 14 Sundays out of the year, that leaves 351 days to drink wherever you want.

I already do - but there are limited opportunities aren't there. Does the bar open at dinner times or nights other than matchdays and functions?

So, we start out with the really bad news that we've lost our main sponsor then the fans on here determine that the critical factor in all of this is when the bar is open and what beer is served. That'll fix it I guess.

Call me a Cassandra if you will but I foresee problems heading the clubs way because of this loss of income.

Good luck with sponsorship and for the season. As long as that doesn't carry on to the Bulldogs matches :)
