London Hibs Members
11th November 2001
First sighting in a while of Iain
Tully and Grant Ramsey and first meeting for
Kenny Miller a new member.
Rose, Alex Lindsay, Mike Inglis and
Andrew reported why Brian our
intrepid chairman was absent last night as he has
just come out of hospital after suffering an h…., he…, hea.., hear..,
sorry cardiac attack.
Andrew said Brian asked him not to use THAT word. He is
home now, recovering and is reasonably comfortable. When Andrew saw him
last weekend he said he
was on serious medication and had to take seven YES SEVEN
pills a day. How he loves that word. Brian suggested our competition
"Guess where the chairman is
this week?" is postponed until next year.
We all pass on our best wishes to
Brian and hope to see him soon.
Due to poor ticket sales and the
uncertainty of Frank and players attending, we
decided to postpone the event for the short term. It was hoped to arrange
something in the spring.
All ticket sales will be refunded. It was hoped we could
use our deposit with Hibs to either obtain a hospitality package for
use as a prize in the
Burns Night Raffle or to be offset against our next event
at Easter Road.
The chosen venue is the Newmarket
Tavern, York Way, London. Tony and Alex are
organising the event. Tony confirmed the date was to be 19th January and
we already have
confirmation that Jackie Macnamara will be one of our special
guests. Tickets will be £12 and this covers a haggis, tatties and
neeps dinner, a live
band for dancing, whisky toast and a late licence to 6 YES
Details will be posted out as soon
There are now 100 paid up members,
however, there are still some members who have
not paid their subs. If you are one of them then please do so as soon
Unfortunately David Drysdale was not
present but Andrew stated he had been to
some of the last few matches. Both were against Rangers winning one and
losing one. In the last
match in the APFSCIL Cup London Hibs were superb with
a 5-1 win.
Attached is a copy of our latest
merchandise list. Mike Prior said it was not
too late for those last minute Hibby Christmas presents.
Next meeting will be Tuesday 11th
