Michael White called the meeting to order and welcomed members who had come to observe.

1. Apologies for Absence
No Apologies were received.

2. Minutes of Meetings
Paper copies of the minutes from the previous two BairnsTrust meetings were distributed in view of Kirstie’s computer problems. These will be approved at the next meeting if in order.

3. Matters Arising
i ) Michael White advised that Brechin had added their support to the Justice for Falkirk campaign and offered a financial donation should the legal route be pursued
ii ) Michael advised that the next FFC Board meeting was scheduled for Monday 21st July and it was therefore agreed to delay the next BairnsTrust meeting by 24 hours

4. Logos
Michael showed a selection of logos to the meeting. The consensus of the meeting was between the original and one of the new logos but with slight modification. Brian, Alastair and Michael are to take this forward and present the finished article to the next meeting

5. Video Update
Previous anomalies relating to the proposed video have now been clarified and at present SFA/SFL contracts are awaited within the next week. In addition to the previous agreement Adamsons have now also offered to pay for the licences and confirmed they will carry any losses in return for 50% of any profit. The Committee warmly welcomed this.
Brian is currently working on scripts for the video and has been conducting interviews with players at Little Kerse. He is also looking at an impressive list of potential sponsors including Tri-gone Snacks, Behind the Wall, Pinnacle, the music industry and local companies.

6. Web Site
Kirstie showed the meeting computer page shots of some of the Trust web pages of other clubs. It was agreed the establishment of a web site was a matter of urgency and a sub committee of Kirstie Stephen and Brian aided by Wayne Toft, Jean Toft and Jim Patterson were charged with taking this forward and reporting to the next meeting. The aim is to have a web site up and running within 4 weeks.

7. Fundraising
Brian presented the idea of FFCUK t-shirts based on the designer label. The Committee enthusiastically received the idea and Brian was given the go-ahead to have 500 of these produced as soon as possible.

8. Other Business
i ) Kirstie queried whether or not Eddie Healey had been re-paid or if he still held shares in the club. Michael is to find out and draft an appropriate letter to Mr Healey to thank him for his help in saving the club, his patience over the past few years and expressing the gratitude of Falkirk fans
ii ) Stephen passed out a draft letter to update members and re-launch the Trust. It was agreed this letter should be sent out once the new logo has been agreed.

9. Date and Time of Next Meeting
In view of the proposed Falkirk FC Board meeting on 21st July, the next meeting is scheduled for 22nd July 2003 at 7.30pm in Elliots.
