Supporters Club Latest News
Latest News From The GIHSC Committee
The Committee last met on Monday 25th November when the following matters were discussed and actioned.
Finance – Successful fundraising had seen a cheque presentation to the Flames on 26th October 2019.
Social – A quiz night will be held on 27th January 2020 at Merrist Wood Golf Club.
Lotteries – 50-50 draws are averaging around £400 and a shirt raffle in November raised over £300.
Sponsorship Grid – The sponsor grid has raised just under £2,000 and the draw for the first half shirt for sponsors was booked for 30th November.
Away Travel – The coach to Coventry had been cancelled due to lack of numbers. It was hoped that additional people would sign up to allow the Nottingham trip to run.
Spectrum / Spectator Comfort – Several issues raised last meeting had been resolved by Spectrum management who had also done a great job with recent ice issues during games. The netting was due to be cleaned to improve viewing from the ice boxes and a couple of additional items were identified to be raised.
Flames / Hockey – The club passed on thanks for the recent donation made by the Supporters Club. The details for the league pride weekend were being finalised but socks will be sold off by the supporter’s club.
Pick-A-Puck – Further pick-a-puck games would be scheduled, but the organiser had some health issues which necessitates only selling the pucks on the top floor before and after games rather than at skate hire during the breaks.
Membership - It was agreed that now that all season ticket holders gained membership to the supporter’s club, that the overhead in processing new memberships for non-season ticket holders was not warranted. A “non-member” price will be established for social events as this is the only benefit that non-members would otherwise be excluded from.
If any supporters club member would like to volunteer for a role that will benefit the club or the team, they are welcome to contact the Chairman, Phil Boyle (GIHSC.Chairman@gmail.com).
