Minutes Of Board Meeting - 1st September

Apologies: Phil Carder


Ben Kelly has announced that he has decided to stand down from the committee due to issues with travelling.


From the previous minutes Martin advised that a framed certificate had been produced for Bernard O’Malley.


Due to Phil’s unavailability, there were no updates on finances

Membership is still increasing and is up to 212, with a lot of members whose membership had lapsed rejoining.


Race night arrangements – Rob advised that he may have a potential night sponsor.

5 race sponsors guaranteed, Alan S to talk to Elite coach, 2 or 3 other companies discussed as possibilities.

Alan J to send press details out for publication for 10th/11th. Push to sell horses, jockeys and race night tickets.


Ballot results – following the decision to go ahead with a long term project, we have been informed by Charlie Clapham that the club would prefer to go down the floodlight route. The club has suggested a meeting on 2nd October where Charlie will provide quotes and details of grants available.

Four members to attend – subject to availability, Alan S, Phil C, Bill, Martin.

The club has also asked if the trust would be willing to sponsor a game at a subsidised rate, but the board thought the money would be better spent going towards long term projects and would decline the offer.


Players re-union – trust to organise with help from Geoff Wilde, Michael Braham and the club. Three dates have been suggested in 2011 – September 8th/15th/22nd and the club to check dates and book the venue. Event open to both league and non league players plus a limited number of supporters (given 130th anniversary, suggested 130 limit).


Other events – board are still trying to find more ideas for fundraising and suggested a brainstorming session at next meeting for an event early next year.

In the meantime, Trust to push standard moneyraising such as pledges, webshop, membership and goalden lottery.


Coaches – 27 booked at time for Forest Green, little demand for Gateshead and coach likely to be cancelled, Darlington times advertised incorrectly and should be 10.30.

Trust to run members specials the first of which will be Grimsby at £13 for members and £24 for non members.


Next open meeting 14th October, next board meeting 25th November.

Coach Travel Update

We are continuing to operate our coach travel and below you can find details of forthcominmg matches and payment policy. It is worth remembering that as more people travel the price will reduce. The intention is to run the coaches over the season on a break even basis.   As last season we will ask for payment in advance and a minimum of 25 confirmed bookings otherwise the coach will have to be cancelled.
Please note that the prices quoted are the MAXIMUM the fares will be if only 25 book.
If a coach trip is well supported there will be a REDUCTION in the charge. For instance if 35 people go on a trip the price will be recalculated and passengers will be given some money back.

Saturday, 4th September . FOREST GREEN Members £25 IF PAID IN ADVANCE £28 on the day Non-members £30 IF PAID IN ADVANCE. £33 on the day. Coach leaves Haig Avenue at 10-30am.

You can book a place by calling in to the Trust Office at Haig Avenue on Match Days or by contacting Alan Scarisbrick on 07980-911693
Although the trips are open to members and non-members the reduction in price for members means they can recoup the cost of their membership of TIY in just two coach trips. Current membership cards must be shown on the coach.
