This is a
special edition of the electronic update of BairnsTrust activities.
If you are reading our newsletter for the first time ... welcome to BairnsTrust as a new member! If regular receivers, welcome back to the new season to our renewed members. If you wish to review some of our previous newsletters they can be visited at the following section of the website ...
The Trust take this opportunity to thank you all for joining for the new season and appreciate all those that made a donation to the contingency fund, too many to mention individually, but very much appreciated. It has been assumed that all under 16s that have joined have done so with full parental/guardian consent.
At very short notice, BairnsTrust have taken on one of the Cabaret Nights originally planned by Drew Norloch Ltd. Fri 22/09/06 will be the date, 7.30pm till late at the Lodge Hall, Brightons Cross, Maddiston Road, Brightons. Silly Connolly v Randy Roxx, billed as a night of laughs and Glam rock'n'roll mayhem! Tickets are £7.50. Please see members of the Trust at the stall on Saturday or they can also be bought on the night at the venue. If you would be willing to donate a raffle prize, please contact the Trust by either method below to arrange uplift. We do require our membership to support this event as we take these events around the community to raise the Social aspect of the Trust. They also have the potential to be big fundraisers. Silly Connolly was a raging success at our debut Social Night.
In an attempt to raise further funds for BairnsTrust, we targeted the Aberdeen fans on Saturday by raffling an Aberdeen FC signed shirt. The draw for this took place at half time. A message of thanks for the £221 raised was sent to their club's Supporter's/Trust websites, match programmes and local newspapers on Monday morning and it appeared briefly on the Aberdeen official website ... www.afc.co.uk/
Those who requested one of our new, eagerly awaited, BairnsTrust 2006-07 Polo/T-shirt, samples should be available for viewing at the stall v Celtic on Sun 01/11/06.
You may also be wondering where your 2006-07 membership card is! The welcome pack has been finalised, but as we were going to print a late opportunity arose to have the cards "sponsored" with the possibility of a range of discounts on production of the card. Although this will delay issuing further the Trust Committee believe it will provide a great benefit to our members when finally received in a few weeks time.
The Club, in conjunction with BairnsTrust have arranged a small programme fair for aficionados on Sun 24/09/06 at the Falkirk Stadium from 11am - 3pm on the Main Stand concourse. Six of the leading programme dealers will be in attendance, so get your "wants" list prepared now! If any members can spare time to assist us on Sunday this would be appreciated. Please contact the Trust by your preferred method below.
The Trust are now willing to take advance orders for Falkirk FC AWAY programmes this season as well as any Scotland home and AWAY programmes. Again please contact the Trust by your preferred method below, allowing sufficient time prematch for collating orders.
We have also signed our first Trinidadian Trust member, who is willing to help us at events. They have supplied a couple interesting articles that appeared in the Trinidad & Tobago's Newsday (The People's Newspaper) ...
One of our members is willing to sell his 400 shareholding if any other members are interested in purchasing. Negotiations would have to be undertaken between the seller, buyer and the Club, but the Trust would help establish initial contact.
Finally, if you have any topics or articles you wish to be included in future BairnsTrust Electronic Newsletters, please respond by your preferred contact method below.
Look forward to seeing you at the monthly meeting where there will be a chance to win a prize for attendees!
