We had a small, but
our favourite number (7) of members at our November meeting. Highlights
of the meeting were:
last season the football team has got off to a slow start but David
remains upbeat about their prospects. Follow their fortunes through our
Website & the team's own site.
Our Player of the Year for last
season was Ian Murray. Great to see a Hibs fan win the trophy.
Arrangements for the presentation will be announced soon.
Burns Night plans for Sat 18th
January are well in hand. We will return to last year's successful
venue. It will be held in The Newmarket Inn, York Way, London, at the
junction of York Way and Agar Grove between Camden and Kings Cross. And
tickets will cost £15. As this is our 10th anniversary Burns Night we're
planning on a special celebration with very special guests.
Please make every effort to
attend. Tickets will be available shortly but meanwhile you can book
through Andrew Murray.
We had a discussion re the crazy
fixtures this season, e.g. Hibs going 3 months without a Saturday home
game, 3 consecutive home & 3 away games & Hearts hijacking the holiday
fixture for the 4th consecutive year. The Chairman was requested to
write to the Club. (This letter has been sent & will shortly be
available to members). The members also unanimously congratulated Bobby
Williamson on actually standing up to the Old Firm re the non penalty
award at Ibrox
Our membership is down on prior
years with some long standing members not yet having paid up. The
Treasurer (Andrew) will issue one more reminder but end of year is
deadline to renew. Still the best value £10 in town - join up now.
Next meeting is our Xmas meeting
on 10 December. Please make every effort to attend & give the year a
great send off. If enough turn up we may twist some money for a
Christmas drink out of the Treasurer.
