BairnsTrust Monthly Newsletter... For Falkirk Bairns Everywhere!
If you are reading our newsletter for the first time ... welcome to BairnsTrust as a new member. If you wish to review some of our previous newsletters they can be visited at the following section of the website HERE.
You are cordially invited to attend the Monthly Meeting in the Warm Up Area of the Falkirk Community Stadium on Monday 16th March 2009, KO 7.30pm.  There will be a full agenda for discussion, but if you have any concerns you wish to raise, please respond to either BairnsTrust or post your query on the message board at our website and we will try to cover on the night.  If you are unable to attend, the Minutes from the meeting will appear on our website later for your perusal HERE.

Fans Forum 17/03/2009, Park Hotel
A date has been set for the rearranged fans forum where supporters can ask questions of the current Falkirk FC management team.

This will be Tuesday 17th March 6.45pm for 7.00pm start at the Park Hotel, Camelon Road, Falkirk.

BairnsTrust acted quickly in conjunction with the Club to bring this opportunity for fans to ask questions of the current management team.  However, the evening first chosen had to be postponed because of a last minute call off by FFC personnel. 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.  Tickets for the original date are still valid and all remaining tickets are available from the Falkirk Stadium Ticket Office now.

Any fans unable to obtain a ticket please e-mail questions to 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 Elections
The two candidates for the position of Alternate Falkirk FC Board Representative 2009/10 have been finalised.  They are Thomas Paterson and Sandy Monfries and both will be present at a hustings evening taking place immediately before the March monthly meeting (16/03/09).  This will begin at 7.30pm so come along and the two candidates will be happy to take any questions you have.  Voting papers will be sent out after this and the winner announced at the AGM in April.

BairnsTrust Stall Expanding!
