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 Annual General Meeting in the Warm Up Area of the Falkirk Community Stadium on Mon 15/03/2010, 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.
February Fans Forum
Another successful fans forum was held on 22/02/10 in the Amarillo Bar at the Falkirk Stadium. There was standing room only as fans welcomed Steven Pressley into the management hotseat. Steven was at the top table along with his assistant Alex Smith, Managing Director George Craig, Chairman Martin Ritchie and BairnsTrust Board Rep Brian Guthrie. Fans got the opportunity to ask any question to the management team with questions ranging from tactics, team selection and youth policy to stock selection in the club shop!
We are grateful to the management for attending these events to give fans the chance to air their views and ideas. This is key in building supporter relations and to ensure players, management and fans come together to be part of the Falkirk family.
It should be noted that Steven Pressley has since changed which dugout he uses in order to influence the standside linesman after it was suggested at this event!
BairnsTrust AGM 2010
The BairnsTrust AGM 2010 will now take place on the rearranged date of Monday 19th April 2010, 7.30pm in the warm-up area at the Falkirk Stadium. All members are encouraged to attend and get involved or simply come along to see what goes on. Non-members are also welcome but will not have voting rights.
General Knowledge Quiz
BairnsTrust will be hosting our first quiz night of 2010 on Monday 22nd March at 7pm in the Castings Social Club, Etna Road, Falkirk. This will be a general knowledge quiz and will follow the usual format of £10 per team of four to win a prize of £100. This is always a fun night where you can find out how much you know, or not! If you would like to enter, please give your team name to any committee member, at the BairnsTrust stall or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Teams can also just turn up on the night but pre-entry is advised. Get your friends involved and come along, we look forward to seeing you there.
BairnsTrust are always on the look-out for keen supporters who are willing to lend a hand. This could be selling merchandise on the Trust stall an hour before a home match, attending and participating in the monthly meetings on the third Monday of every month or helping to organise a fundraising event. It doesn't have to be much but any help will be appreciated. If you are interested, please e-mail email@example.com with your availability or present yourself to the Trust stall on a matchday.
The stall will be open as usual for the next home league game of the season on Saturday 13th March against St Johnstone. There will be official Falkirk FC merchandise on sale, back stock of old programmes which you may have missed, unique BairnsTrust merchandise not available anywhere else plus the usual team will be on hand to take your queries or questions.
