90th Anniversary Ceilidh - 4th October 2014

As many of you will be aware the club has reached the ripe old age of 90 this year. Following the anniversary dinner earlier in May, a club ceilidh has been organised for Saturday the 4th of October at Shottstown Miners 7pm till midnight to celebrate this important event in our history.

Building on the success of the recent Mexican night, the ceilidh is open to all club members young and old as well as family and friends.

Tickets are £5 each which includes entertainment for the night and as much stovies as you can eat. These are now available from committee members or send us a message on email or Facebook.

Look forward to seeing you all on the night

Regards

International Tickets

Details of the prices for the tickets for two of the three 2014 Autumn Tests (Argentina, New Zealand) and for the home games in the 2015 6 Nations (Wales, Italy, Ireland) as well as the details of Autumn Test Passes and the Season Passes have been posted here.

Please note that the Autumn Test against Tonga seems to be in a state of limbo. I have no details of location or price. It is also NOT part of either of the Season Pass packages. I expect the lack of information means that it will be played somewhere other than Murrayfield. As soon as I get details of prices for that game, I will put them up.

Similarly, I have no details yet for the away games for the 6 Nations. Again, they will appear in due course.

If you would like to place orders for tickets, please go to the relevant page on the website, select the number of tickets that you want in each category. The form will calculate the total amount due. Please print that form out and hand it to me WITH PAYMENT by the date specified. Details are listed in the forms themselves.

Commission
For information, the club receives varying amounts of commission on each ticket sold through the club for home international matches. This varies from game to game and season to season. For this season, 5% of the ticket price for Wales and Ireland 6 Nations games, 15% of the ticket price for the Italy game and 25% of the price for tickets for the Argentina and New Zealand games will go to the club. For the season pass tickets, 15% of the Full Season Pass ticket and 25% of the Autumn Test Pass tickets comes to the club. This is a significant source of income for the club and we urge you to buy all your international tickets for family and friends through this service.

A note on Handling Fees
We also charge a small handling fee on each ticket (2% of face value - max £3/ min 50p). This is considerably less than the fee that you would have to pay if you ordered the tickets yourself with the SRU online system (currently charging £2.40 per ticket or £4.20 per ticket for the Season Passes). It is also the only source of (small) profit for the club on tickets for away games. It has been pointed out to me that no such fee is charged if you were to pitch up at the SRU Ticket Office and buy the tickets yourself. This is indeed true, but the cost to you in petrol would more than outweigh any savings that you thought you were making. The club also would not receive any commission if you were to adopt that route. Any money remaining from the handling fees after the cost of processing payments through the club bank account has been deducted goes directly to supporting the club’s work.

Tickets for the Scotland vs England Game 2016
Its a long way off, but our club ticket allocation for the 2016 England game will probably be based on our 2015 ticket uptake. Priority for 2016 England tickets will be given to those who buy tickets this season should this be the case. Tickets will be in short supply for that game.
