Cardiff Blues Supporters' Club Committee Summer Update
29 July 2013 15:32pm
Whilst you are all enjoying this lovely summer we are having, the committee of Cardiff Blues Supporters' Club are busy preparing for next season ...
Annual General Meeting
Our AGM is taking place at the Arms Park on Wednesday 7th August and by now, all of last season's members should have received an information pack relating to the meeting (either by email or by post), including a voting form for the Supporters'' Club Player of the Year Awards for last season. If you haven't yet received your pack, by all means drop us a line via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We have at least two vacancies on our committee this year so if you're interested in becoming more involved with us - we'd be delighted to hear from you! No previous experience is needed, all we ask is that you attend one committee meeting a month, help out on matchdays (on a rota basis) and contribute to some of our trips and events. Some of the things we do include writing articles for the match programme and website, manage our own communications channels including Twitter, email and Facebook, and raise money for charity - over £11,000 raised last season. We're always looking for new ideas, so if you're interested why not send us an email or give Chairperson Sarah a call on 07792 017784.
Membership for Adults costs just £10 and for Juniors (17 and under) it's only £5. We will be sending out our membership packs at the start of the new season and these will contain the 2013/14 member pin badge and this year's gift which is a branded can holder - perfect for keeping your cold drinks cool! You'll also get exclusive discounts on our away trips and other exciting membership benefits.
Trip to pre-season friendly at Worcester
We are running a bus to the game (Supporters' Club members and non members all welcome!) so why not leave the car at home and join the trip!
The bus will depart from Westgate St (Gate 3 Millennium Stadium) at 12pm, with the return trip leaving at approximately 6pm. If you are a member of the Supporters' Club for 2013/14 - the cost for an Adult is £12 and Juniors is £8, with non members costing £15 and £10 for adult/junior non members respectively.
All seats need to be paid for in full in advance and this can be done via the CBSC website (using the link above) now.
