Supporters Club Latest News
Latest News From The GIHSC Committee
The Supporters Club Committee is happy to keep Flames Supporters informed regarding matters that have been raised and discussed at their monthly meetings.
The Committee last met on 8th August when the following matters were discussed and actioned.
Fundraising – card payment systems were discussed for possible use by 50/50 ticket sellers. It was agreed that we should ask the supporter’s at the “Ask The Flames” meeting (see below) to identify whether card machines were likely to boost 50-50 sales. The machines carry a cost and will add to the process for the 50/50 so we would want to be sure that they will increase the take to cover this.
Social Events - A Meet The Players event will be held on the 28th August. Soft drinks and pizza will be provided. £7.50 per ticket was agreed as a cost and payments will be collected via paypal.
An Ask The Flames event will be arranged the same day. This will allow supporter’s to ask questions. This will be free to enter. The Action Suite at the Spectrum is booked from midday. The Ask The Flames session will be from 12 to 1.30 with the Meet The Players from 2pm to 3.30pm. The room will be cleared between sessions to ensure ticketing for 2nd event is valid.
Away Travel - A coach company had been booked and 5 trips are planned with Nottingham on 10/9 being the 1st . Coaches will not be run at a loss.
Spectrum – New ground floor seating is due to be installed in July. Work is ongoing to improve the ice for the 2022/23 season.
Sponsor Grid - The 2022/23 grid will open at the pre-season event. The format will revert to pre-covid format with over £20 sponsors getting on ice photo and under £20 sponsors getting their name on the grid.
Volunteers – We need more volunteers to act as door stewards and 50-50 sellers. If you would be able to help, please email GIHSC.Chairman@gmail.com and you will be put in touch with someone to discuss.
Spectrum – The rink is looking good with new seating and some painting done. A new sound system is being commissioned but will not be in place for the season. The club have been promised security team improvements and additional Spectrum door staff this year.
Puck Sales - A suggestion was made that we could consider selling game pucks marked up with the goal-scorers. This is being looked into. Signed puck sales for kids go free nights will also be arranged.
Kids - Kids colouring pages will be available at games.
