London Hibs January 1999 Update

 

Fanzine

After 20 months of talking, we have at last got our act together and produced issue 21 of Hibees Here Hibees There. Whilst this may not the best fanzine we have produced (from a design point of view) it has been hard work putting it together and I thank all of you who contributed articles for inclusion. If we sell all of our 800 copies, then the fanzine will not only help promote our supporters club in Edinburgh, it will also make us a 200 profit, which will go towards subsidising other activities within the club throughout the season.

Whilst the fanzine is still fresh in our minds, can I ask you to start thinking about articles for Issue 22 which we are aiming to have ready for the last home game of the season.

 

Burns Night Supper:

We are all systems go for yet another fantastic night out in the Holyrood next Saturday for the "London HIBERNIAN 1999 Burns Night Supper".

As you know, this is the main social event of the year for our club which has always been an excellent opportunity for those members who would not normally make the monthly meetings, to meet up with fellow London based Hibees. It is also a good opportunity to prove to the wife/girlfriend and other friends that you are not the only 'sad-it' who watches Ceefax page 311 every Saturday afternoon!

If you have not yet ordered your tickets for evening, then you are not too late as we have some left. However. I must have your final requirements by Thursday 27 January so I can pass on numbers to the Holyrood. If necessary, you can pay for your tickets on the night but I must have numbers,

Tickets this year will cost 15 a head which, although considerably more expensive thin last year, is not too bad for an almost all-inclusive night out in London. For the benefit of those who were not at the January meeting, the main reason for this 50% increase is that our food costs have doubled, due mainly too new management at the pub. We have also asked the live band to play for an extra hour and this year you will receive a free drink on your arrival in exchange for your ticket.

I neglected to include the venue on the tickets, so for those of you who don't know where the Holyrood is, then it is in Wells St, which is just off Oxford St between Oxford Circus and Tottenham Court Road. The evening will start at 7.3Opm and the bar will close at 2pm. As I mentioned in previous newsletters, Pat Stanton will be our guest of honour for the evening so there will be plenty of opportunity to have a chat with him, and have some photographs taken - we will have a camera there too!

Pat will be arriving on the Friday evening and will be going out for a meal in the Reading area with some of our members. If you would like to meet up on Friday 29 January for a couple of pints and probably an Indian, then give me a call - it will be around 8.3Opm. On the Saturday we will be taking Pat to watch FuIham Vs Northampton, so if you fancy coming along to this game, then give me a call and I will tell you where will be meeting up.

January Meeting

At the January meeting we welcomed new member David Drysdale who was the first member to join the club using our new Web Pages on the Internet We also welcomed back a few old members; Tony Connor and John & Cheryl Ewan who have been out of touch with the club for a few months.

Welcome back guys!!

As Alex Lindsay was unable to make the meeting, we could not discuss in detail the trip to Edinburgh, which was proposed at the December meeting. For our next get together on Tuesday 9 February, Alex and Graeme Walker will find out what the costs will be for the trip. It was agreed that the club would help subsidise trip' but until we know exactly what is involved and how many will travel it was not possible to confirm by how much!!
