Chairman's Update March 2019

25 March 2019 News 83

Dear friends, colleagues and members,

Phew! We made it -a successful opening night of the bar, combined with signing on night and a quiz. What was achieved behind the scenes in a short space of time is little short of a miracle -or madness- but I knew we had some brilliant people at our club and they have come up trumps. Thanks go to all who helped, including our suppliers Lancaster Brewery and Primo Drinks who have been extremely helpful in enabling the night to be a success. All that was done is for the good of our members -and I hope you will all enjoy the result throughout the year.

I am pleased to announce the support of new sponsors for both advertising and match-balls -there's always room for more!

Our next step -getting the cricket ground side of our club ready! Plenty of little jobs and some larger annual tasks -please offer whatever time you can spare to assist Oli Vincent with Ground Force activities.

Finally, we look forward to welcoming opposition for a pre-season friendly on Saturday 13th April -hope to see many of you there.

Dave Rolinson


Sponsorship Opportunities

19 March 2019 News 91

Dear all,
There are two main sponsorship opportunities available at TCCC for the 2019 season.
Match ball sponsorship. Cost £25. We have three Saturday teams and a Sunday team -that’s nearly 100 balls! Coax it out of your boss or grandparents -we are always appreciative!
Pitchside advertising board £250 + VAT. Gerald Brown had a vision for the Illawalla ground to have advertising hoardings -like some of you will have seen at Longridge CC. I would like to see this materialise -not only for the commercial revenue, but also to stop our match balls disappearing into places we can’t go! We are extremely grateful to our existing sponsors and hope they will continue to support us. If you, or someone you know, would like to support the club in this way, please contact me directly for a discussion. Who knows, we might be able to reduce player subs in future!!
Please do what you can -and spread the burden!

Signing-on night plus Quiz - 22nd March

19 March 2019 News 67

This friday sees our Signing-on night plus Quiz and the official opening of ‘Brian’s Bar’.

Dear Member - present and future,

In advance of our signing-on night, please find attached this year’s forms together with the necessary information to enable payment of subs by direct credit. By sending the forms in this way, we hope to enable signing-on night to be a smooth process. Forms will be available on the night and over the coming weeks should you wish to fill them out in the historical way.

Should you wish to make payment by direct credit, PLEASE put your name as reference. If you are paying for multiple-subscriptions in one payment, please make reference -ie ROLINSON x4, and bring your completed forms to either signing on night or nets.

Many thanks for your help with this.

Dave Rolinson
