The membership fees of £50 for senior players and £10 for
juniors will be due before or at our AGM in January 2016 and we will accept payment in stages. We would also like to stress
the importance of our Club Lottery in contributing to our income and would ask you all to play this weekly,
its a way of supporting your club and an opportunity to win some money.
To all Members
It is not only the players and coaches who contribute
to the success of our club, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes that we sometimes take for granted . A team
on the park depends on the hard work and efforts of all club members.
We turn up on match days to a clean clubhouse and the away teams are treated to excellent
meals prepared and served by Margaret Whitelaw, the soup is always delicious as is the home baking.
Margaret ensures our playing strips are washed and ready for each match. Sincere thanks to you both.
It takes a great deal of money to run our teams and maintain our
clubhouse, in David Herriot we have a treasurer who looks after our finances with great skill, he
ensures money is made available whenever necessary and also that we have funds in the bank.
This money comes from three other main sources of income, we receive
a payment from Argyll and Bute Council for providing changing facilities for other local clubs, however
it is the efforts of two other club members who provide a constant income stream.
Our Chairman Barry Martin puts a great deal of effort into gaining and arranging
various lets for our clubhouse including weddings, birthday parties etc. as well as dog training
lessons and fitness classes for adults all providing good monetary income, this takes up a great
deal of his time and often goes without notice, our thanks, well done Barry.
Last but not
least we have John MacCallum ably running our Club Lottery, he goes round the various outlets every Monday
collecting the tickets and money, supervises the draw and pays out the winnings. Without this source of
income we would struggle financially. Thank you John. We would ask once again
for your support by buying tickets for this lotto draw, it offers good prize money to those
addition we very much welcome the support given by our sponsors, George and Katie Ross of Macs Bar, Greig and Mara Fisher
of McIntyre Butchers and Colin and Maggs Lockhart of Ardbeg Mini Market.
We also received in excess of £10,000 in grants and donations, the Big Lottery Fund with over £7000,
£800 from Foundation Scotland, £500 from ForBute and various donations from members and supporters, many thanks
to you all.
Once again my apologies to anyone I have omitted from this list, the fault will be entirely mine.
