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 21st February 2011, 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.

Leiutenant Stardust - Friday 1st April

As part of the continued effort to raise money to sponsor the Falkirk Academy, BairnsTrust would like to invite all fans and their families to an excellent night of entertainment from local band Leiutenant Stardust.  The night will start at 7.30pm on Friday 1st April at Grangemouth Town Hall and will include a four course meal, music from Lt. Stardust, followed by a disco provided by DJM entertainments
 
Tickets are priced at only £25 per person and are available via e-mail, from the matchday stalls or from any BairnsTrust committee member.  Remember, all profits made go to the Falkirk Academy, so please support this event if you can, as it will be an evening not to be missed!

February Fans Meeting
An informative fans meeting was held on Saturday 5th February to allow supporters to come along and hear Fans Board Representative Tom Paterson explain his role in the lead up to and aftermath of the concerning winding up order published in the press.  A full breakdown of events was detailed, followed by a constructive debate on the role that fans should play in the future of OUR club.  There were many interesting points made and a few areas were identified as to how BairnsTrust can progress and gain momentum, at a time when everyone associated with the club needs to pull together. 

BairnsTrust would like to stress that it is not, and has never been, unduly concerned over the running of the club and the HMRC issue from earlier this month has been resolved.  However, it is clear that every business in this financial climate is struggling to some extent and the club need supporters to continue to turn out in numbers and buy season tickets early, to aid cash flow.

Any BairnsTrust member who thinks they have skills or experience which would be useful (ie business, accounting etc) please make yourself known by e-mail or at the next home game.

2011 Calendar - Price Reduced

The official Falkirk FC calendar for 2011 produced by BairnsTrust is still on sale throughout the Falkirk area.  Priced now at only £5, all profit goes to the Falkirk Academy.  Production costs have been met by sponsors, therefore, every sale goes towards the Academy. If you have yet to buy yours, please do so as soon as possible whilst stocks last.  This is a very worthy cause that is strongly supported by BairnsTrust.

The calendar is available online here

It is also stocked at the Falkirk FC stadium shop; Wishing Well newsagents, Newmarket Street; Camelon newsagents (next to the Copper Top); Grangemouth Post Office; Cow Wynd Post Office; Sandy Monfries General store, Brightons & Barbers Pole, Bo’Ness; as well as on a match day from the Family Marquee and all BairnsTrust stalls.

Irn Bru Tops!

League sponsors Irn Bru have launched a campaign to see which team can collect the most Irn Bru bottle tops before May 7th.  You may have seen the orange buckets outside the stadium at the last home game, so now is the time to start collecting!  The team with the most will win £10,000 towards youth football.  Please get everyone you know involved and help Falkirk win

Family Marquee Success Continues

The family marquee is proving to be a popular addition to the family matchday experience.  Situated outside the main stand, it is now open from 10am on match days providing a family-friendly place to get together with a multitude of games, entertainment, football coaching and refreshments on offer.  BairnsTrust are now running the 'tuck shop' inside the marquee which supplies food and juice at reasonable prices.  This is not just for family season ticket holders - all fans, young and old, are invited to come in on a match day.

Volunteers are always needed to continue to make this a success.  If you would like to help please get in touch or simply show up on the day and introduce yourself!

A selection of merchandise is available in the marquee and at the match day stalls as usual.  You can also still browse the existing BairnsTrust merchandise HERE
