Just 8 members braved the cold to attend the meeting.
The next game is Arsenal – an early start – pick up at 6 am in Bideford and 6:15ish in Barnstaple.
Italy trip – there are 6 members making the trip to Italy at the end of the month. An early flight from Gatwick makes it far more sensible to stay overnight prior to flying out. The Holiday Inn at Gatwick has since been booked. At the start of the season there were club funds earmarked for a European away tie and it was agreed that the club would fund this overnight accommodation/parking using part of these funds, all those going having already met the cost of flights/hotel/tickets etc.
West Ham game 22/2/2015 – 5 members have booked to go, travelling up with Somerset Spurs.
Wembley 1/3/2015 – tickets go on sale from Monday 9th February to club members. Giles has drawn the short straw to try to apply for tickets for several of the club members. The unknown is the number of loyalty points needed to obtain a ticket.
Leicester game -21st March. Lisa has agreed to drive.
Aston Villa game on 11 April – Kevin Payne to drive. Giles needs to know by Wednesday 11 February. Category B game – price £65.00.
Last home game v Hull on 16 May – anyone wishing to go needs to let Giles know by 24 February at the very latest.
Some are talking of applying for tickets for the last game of the season away to Everton (24th May) but nothing was formally decided. Similarly, there is a possibility of doing the Stoke away game (9th May) but there was only one taker from the 8 at the meeting. If anyone is interested in doing any of these please contact Giles asap.
Finances – to make it easier from an administration point of view, the club is looking to offer payment of your North Devon Spurs club membership by direct debit. This can easily be done online now at minimal cost. Look out for more details in the next newsletter.
Next meeting – 7 May 2015 – Green Man, Barnstaple
