RiG makes a very valid point. The Chairman is very accessible and approachable and already has a considerable track record for making himself available on a one-to-one to fans with issues to discuss.

As for the AGM, that's usually a pretty small, brief and staid affair that's unlikely to be a happy hunting ground for an anti-acronym insurgency. Things have changed a great deal since the Rose Street Hall!

Can't argue with this at all.

More to do with my time. They could have simply answered the 2 simple questions on this forum.

Absolutely. It's just like when I have an issue with my Internet connection, I put a post up in an unofficial forum and expect BT to get in touch, when they don't I get all upset and repeat my complaint ad nauseum. I certainly wouldn't contact BT directly to try and resolve it, that would be ridiculous.

Have you thought about changing supplier? :whistle:

I emailed the club yesterday evening with my thoughts and opinions on the matter, along with a few questions. Received a reply today saying it had been passed on to the Chairman and he would respond soon.

I will post an update as and when I hear back 

Come on mate, no need to keep it to yourself what was his response ?

Apologies, didn't mean to keep everyone in the dark. I got a written reply by post last Saturday - been a bit busy hence why I haven't updated on here. I am not going to go into too much detail on the contents of the letter as the Chairman respectfully requested that I did not post his reply online for all to read. 

Overall the Chairman was very welcoming of my feedback and reiterated that the club encourages supporters to contact them whenever they wish. The main message of the reply was that I was the first person to actually contact the club directly regarding the matter, other than the supporters trust. So beyond my email and the message from the supporters trust, the club has not received any real feedback on the variation of the badge. Obviously people have voiced their opinion on this forum but even if the club have read this (and I'm of the opinion that they shouldn't be responding officially to comments on a fans forum) then it is till only a very small fraction of the support that they have heard from. 

I'm still of the opinion that the team kit should retain the official club badge rather than the variation but unless a much larger proportion of the support voice their discontent then (quite rightly) there is no reason for the club to consider reverting back. Perhaps that petition is in order to actually get some numbers behind this?

As I say I'm not a fan of the variation being used on the kits, but if the majority of fans are happy with it, or aren't bothered either way than I'll accept it.

I just received EGM notification and see that the crest on our official stationery has that "Pride of the Highlands" crap on the crest. What a bludy nonsense.

We must have received different letters,  there is no "Pride of Highlands" slogan on the letter I got!

No not an outrage, just an example of the NAFF image of our club these days. I hope it changes and soon  (for the better of course)

They shouldn't have had any stock in the first place.

Posting 3 logos here in response to the comments on here and also in the EGM thread where someone asked for it to be posted for comparison (http://caleythistleonline.com/topic/31445-extraordinary-general-meeting-3rd-august/?page=2

 

 

 

This is the current official ICT logo

ICT Official Logo

 

This is the 'offending' logo with the bastardised banner below the badge
(apologies for the quality of the image - its a photo of a piece of paper)

ICT_PotH.jpg

 

For reference. this is our original logo which was more detailed on the eagle and thistle but was changed because it was too hard to replicate properly and to a decent quality on merchandise and clothing

EDITED to add the image below which was in fact our original logo

Current official logo is fine...not the 'pride of the highlands' version!

I agree 100%

Yeah keep our original banner below the crest. If they're so adamant about squeezing Pride of the Highlands in somewhere they could easily add the text underneath on a letterhead. 

Like so
