Charter Flight Interest - Minsk/St. Petersburg
Can we of course immediately point out that we are not being presumptuous here and as life long Hibees we know we should never be too optimistic. The reality however is that should we be lucky or good enough to progress in this tournament we would only have a week to organise things and if we leave things until the last minute the only people who will pay is our own supporters.
Prior to the flight for Molde we sought to establish the level of interest for a Charter Flight for our supporters. While this was helpful there were a number who had indicated their desire for such a flight but did not progress to purchase. The flight sold in just over 24 hours with a number on the waiting list.
With all of this in mind we would like to be better prepared should we get through. A very preliminary discussion with Agents suggests that St Petersburg would simply not be possible in the time available bearing in mind Visa requirements so we are not taking that interest any further.
To help us establish the level of true interest in this we are inviting Members to make a donation of £5 to HSL. Donations made by 12 noon tomorrow will help us to understand the level of interest. By 12 noon tomorrow if the numbers suggest that Non Members would easily fill any potential shortfall we will invite Non Members to make a donation of £10 to HSL. This exercise allows us to :
(a) Understand demand
(b) Email this priority group quickly after events unfold
If this is of any interest to our supporters it is important that the following is fully understood and accepted :
- If we donít qualify there will not be any refunds
- If a flight cannot be secured at an affordable price we will not progress matters and again we cannot refund any donations made
Please however bear in mind where your donations go, so in either circumstance our Team benefits.
We have made enquiries for a day trip and indicated that we believe that our supporters would not have any interest at a price greater than £650.
If you believe this is something that you would take up please donate at:
Please remember you can only donate from your Members page. You will appreciate that we are simply trying to offer some assistance here so please only respond if your interest is very serious. We will not respond directly to individual emails at this stage as we are just establishing the level on interest, if any.
