Fans Forum 24/02/2009, Park Hotel
A date has been set for a fans forum where supporters can ask questions of the current Falkirk FC management team.
This will be Tuesday 24th February 6.45pm for 7.00pm start at the Park Hotel, Camelon Road, Falkirk.
BairnsTrust has acted quickly in conjunction with the Club to bring this opportunity for fans to ask questions of the current management team. The night will take the form of a question-time style with questions being written and submitted before the forum begins.
Due to a capacity of 320, entry will be by ticket only which will be available on a first come first serve basis. Supporters clubs registered with FFC will be allocated a minimum of 10 tickets per club. All remaining tickets are available from the Falkirk Stadium Ticket Office now.
All fans unable to obtain a ticket please e-mail questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on the messageboard.
There will be a raffle on the night to win a number of Falkirk FC prizes and The Falkirk Herald have been invited along with Central FM and Falkirk TV.
BairnsTrust are delighted to announce the signing of another Corporate Sponsor.

Following consultation with a number of fans groups regarding first team performances, BairnsTrust raised these concerns with the Falkirk FC Board on behalf of the Falkirk support. This was in the form of a statement of the current fans view and several questions for the management team. The BairnsTrust committee will publish the outcomes from this as soon as these have been finalised. This will most likely be in the March electronic newsletter.
A large selection of programmes are available at the BairnsTrust stall on match days and orders can also be placed for all Falkirk FC away games for a small handling fee. Stocks are limited so get in quick to avoid disappointment or pre-order yours now by e-mailing email@example.com!
Do you require a copy of the Falkirk v Ajax friendly programme? BairnsTrust can supply, along with the various Scotland programmes from the games held at the Falkirk Stadium. We have also branched out into French football and have FC Lorient v Rennes progs available from the game on 20/12/08.
BairnsTrust has recently acquired the Club's large selection of programmes from the past few seasons. The initial idea is that these will be sorted into bundles and given away as part of a goody bag to local school children and young fans attending future Falkirk home games.
The matchday stall is also now fully stocked with official Falkirk FC merchandise. With the closing of the Kirk Wynd shop on 31st January, this is the perfect location to purchase FFC goods. Please pay a visit to see our collection.
You can also still browse the existing BairnsTrust merchandise online HERE.

BairnsTrust are still seeking a Secretary. This Board Committee position can be undertaken by anyone, not necessarily in employment or even a Falkirk FC supporter and will receive full assistance from fellow Committee Members.
Any member who has not picked up their 2008/09 BairnsTrust Membership card from our matchday stall will receive it by post along with their AGM documentation.
The committee are currently compiling a hard copy newsletter to compliment the electronic version and reach a larger audience. This will provide information on all activities which BairnsTrust are currently involved in and will hopefully encourage more people to participate in these for the benefit of BairnsTrust and Falkirk FC. This is planned to be handed out free at a home game in the near future.
