  1. When my kids were little back in the first division first time round the club did family hospitality a couple of times a season. All the players were involved after the game. At one there was a giant chocolate fountain and my kids still go on about that day. My youngest won a signed ball, every table had one to win, and it’s still pride of place in my living room. Stuff like this should be done again. It was always a sell out.
  2. To be honest im really confused over the foundation. It was launched at the 25th anniverary ball the other week and all the funds raised (over 27k from the auction alone) was in aid of the foundation. But there seems very little detail anywhere on what exactly this foundation is about or as you say the governance around it.
  3. This makes it very strange that somebody who was so commited and as you say right in the middle of different things to up and go like this and not at least finish what she started. Where does this leave the new foundation that she was key in setting up?
  4. I have always liked the idea of the killie trust. https://killietrust.killiefc.com/ Its been very sucessful in raising much meeded funds for the club while geting a fans representative on their board.
  5. definately will be going, still smiling from yesterday, cant wait.
  6. I just feel its really bad timing to come out and request more money from the fans. Just now there is a feeling (rightly or wrongly) with a lot of fans that money is being squandered and money spent in the wrong areas. By this I mean not dealing with simple day to day stuff, filling hospitality (most have been half empty this season), selling naming rights for the club, advertising boards, even not being able to purchase a scarf in the club shop on match day! We have a new so called marketing expert but this far in the season I can see no improvement. So before I part with even more of my hard earned money, I would really like to see what the club are doing to maximise their revenue streams. Maybe this is happening and we are just not seeing it, but this is what I would need to know before I start donating money into the club.
  7. That was the one I was on about the other day to you, the Cheiftain, it was a brilliant night.
  8. Read the auditors notes on last years lodged accounts and make your own mind up on that one.......
  9. If you have a negative balance sheet then in that situation any business is bankrupt and no accountant would sign off the accounts.
  10. It’s gives the club an asset on their balance sheet and removes a debt in accountancy terms the club is no longer bankrupt. It stops the rental payments having to go through the accounts ever year (which didn’t get paid) which would be owed to tulocchs then requiring a letter of comfort to allow the accounts to be signed off. Tullochs could have called in the debt which would have ended the club. As part of the deal Tucllochs have also given up the naming rights to the stadium. This can now open up a lot of income if the club manage to sell these naming rights to another company.
  11. All very odd as the official website shows that we currently have two number 8s lol
  12. The one at my office was start of December if I remember correctly, not sure about the trust one but it was some time ago.
  13. I get lots of e-mails from the club, and yes im a season ticket holder, but never got an e-mail regarding this ball. I knew about it due to my work as the owner of the business I work for got an invite to purchase a table. The supporters trust also got an invite to purchase a table but there was nothing as far as I could see generally advertising the ball until last week.
  14. Definately aimed at the great and good of Inverness unfortunately, £120 way to expensive for the avarage supporter. Been offered to selected groups and businesses, obviously not sold out to them so being offered to us, 3 weeks before.
  15. Its a big no from me too. Not all our supporters live in the town and im one of them, so moving from Saturday to Friday night would definately stop me going to the games, in fact a season ticket would be utterly useless as I very rarely get to midweek games as it is. I just would not physically be able to attend and get back home. Also seeing what happened with the attendanced at the scotland games shows moving from a 3pm Saturday does not really work for the majority. I also agree with the above comment that it would only really stand a slight chance of working if we also switched to summer football.
