You are cordially invited to attend the Monthly Meeting in the Warm Up Area of the Falkirk Community Stadium on Monday 15th February 2010, 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.
No January Meeting
Unfortunately there will be no January meeting. This is due to the postponed Scottish Cup Tie against Kilmarnock being rearranged for the night that it would have been held - Monday 17th January 7.45pm kick off. Therefore, the next BairnsTrust meeting will take place on Monday 15th February at 7.30pm at the Falkirk Stadium.
Share Rights Issue
Following the agreement by FFC shareholders at the recent AGM, fans have the unique chance to buy shares in Falkirk FC at a reduced price for a limited period. After an extremely successful evening held last month, BairnsTrust are holding a third information evening. This will take place on Sunday 17th January 2009 between 2pm and 3pm at the Falkirk Stadium. Shares are priced at 68p per share with a minimum purchase of 100 shares. Please bring along a proof of ID (eg Passport/Driving License) and a household bill.
Following the tremendous response to the BairnsTrust 'Magic Moments' Calendar 2010, stock is now limited. These A3 sized calendars are a must have for all Falkirk fans, featuring 12 colour packed pages of "all time greats" and historical Magic Moments from Falkirk Football Club's glorious past. They will be on sale on the stalls of the concourse at the Falkirk Stadium at the Dundee Utd game on Sunday 24th January and online here
