After a longer barren period than a certain Mr Morrison in front of goal , Nottingham whites finally fired back into life with its first meeting in over a year ( or 4 managers in Leeds years )
An enthusiastic throng of 36 new and old faces ( plus another 10,000 outside ) descended upon the Peacock pub on Mansfield road ,Rumours that someone misread the text and was sat in the peacock opposite Elland Rd have not yet been proven. Optimism filled the air for the season ahead with actual conversations of on field activities and grand signings rather than the usual were all doomed before a ball is kicked .. or miss kicked in Mr Morrison’s case .. however dark clouds gathered over head as the meeting time approached .. maybe another ominous warning from the fickle football gods in their relentless unforgiving torment of our beloved damned Leeds United !
For those that missed the action here are the minutes
1: Membership renewals are now due , cost remains at £10 for the season . It was suggested that members put a £30 deposit down to cover themselves if they can’t make a game without a good genuine reason when a ticket or bus as been booked on their behalf . This would be repaid to all members at the end of the season if they had incurred no unnecessary avoidable costs to the club .. This will be discussed further at the next meeting
2: Website .. Please make the website your first port of call for anything to do with Nottingham Whites
3: Annual trip to Scarborough , there are still some limited places available please contact Rich if interested in going
Bus leaves city at 7:30 am and Phoenix park 7:45am
4: Orders are now being taken for the following games .. Burnley home , Reading and Bristol City away
Please let Andy know if you are interested in any of these games if you haven’t already booked a ticket or transport
5: We are going to try and expand our name via social media .. This task has been handed to Holly official leader of the new generation brat pack
6: It was voted that for now the Peacock will be the official pub for future meetings , as always members are welcome to suggest alternative venues if they feel it would benefit all of the members
7: AGM .. The AGM is coming up if anyone is interested in sitting on the committee or wishes to have a change the current committee please put your name forward at the next meeting
8: Rich raised a point that it was brought to his attention that last season some members were unhappy with some of the decision making from the chairman . Not Bates for once.
All members present were given the chance to freely air any concerns without prejudice .. No members came back with any response apart from possibly a change in the Christmas party venue and Rich was given a unanimous vote of confidence by the whole membership present.
9: The above mentioned Christmas do will be held at the Greyhound track for a NW memorial evening in early Jan 2016 to coincide with Tony Buck passing 5 years and other members that we have sadly lost in recent years
10: Away travel on the coach next season will be same as it always has been .. Strictly No alcohol on board the coach , but we will stop off for dinner and to stretch our legs on route
11: Andy to speak to ex local player Steve Hodge regarding attending a future meeting to talk about his time at Leeds .. This will be reported back at the next meeting
12: It was asked if we could mix it up on home games with varied stop offs from the usual ones currently taken .. Rich will look into this as a monthly alternative
13 : Next meeting to be confirmed .. keep an eye on the website
