After the ballot we are severely lacking in tickets, nothing from the standard pot, only 2 from the execs, and the loyalty pot didn’t fair any better.
There will not be a bus to the game, most people have decide to drive down and stay for at least 1 night with some staying 2 nights, we have rooms in the Premier Inn Cambridge Central on Newmarket Road.
There is a pub called the Corner House opposite the hotel so that is convenient for a drink, the web site shows it opening until 00-00 for those not going into the center be good for a beer after the game, there is one pub closer to the ground called The Wrestlers Arms, a real ale pub that also serves Thai food. then opposite the ground there is a curry house Pipasha which is open until 11pm
There will be members travelling without tickets, so if anyone hears of anything locally in Cambridge please let us know.
I think the majority of our members are on the 0904 out of Stockport so see you either on the platform or for the late comers when you get to Euston
There are a couple of people not picked up tickets that are travelling independently, please ensure you do so before Friday evening
For the members of the loyalty pot who have to pick up their tickets at Loftus Road, please make sure you are there for 2pm to avoid queuing and still be able to get in on time, don’t forget your passports or driving licenses
We’ll let everyone know where we are going in London, one option is Hammersmith, unless anyone has any suggestions?
The next meeting will commence at 20-00 hours, so if you can make it please do so, there has been a lack of support for the past couple of meetings, so we would like to see more people there
On the agenda will be the following :
Tickets for home games
Tickets for Away games
Transport – home and away
Fans Forum – Questions
Location of Meetings
There will be one bus going to the game on Tuesday evening,
First pick up will be Buxworth at 17-00 and then the normal stops
Last Friday was the MUDSA annual dinner, with quest speaker Gordon McQueen
The branch were lucky to have 3 tables and from feed back everyone had a great evening
Thanks go to members of MUDSA for the tireless work they do in organizing this, to Bob from 1919 who provided the transport allowing all the members who attended to have a good time without worrying about getting home afterwards
Sue Kilroy whilst did not win the ball or the shirt, was a lucky winner of a signed Ryan Giggs photo in the raffle.
Any members who would like to put their names down for next year, then we can add them to the list
