have been talking to a couple of people about this and think this could be a massive chance to raise funds and have a great night.the sooner a sub committee is set up to organise this the better.kenny donald has some great ideas on this as does dennis.i have some ideas myself and think davy nick should be involved also.lets try and get a meet together and get this planned.think it should be a fund raiser for brid next year and it will be supported by all the players and areas.

Needs a Ladies touch as well.

If we can get at least 20 singers it will be a fab night.

So lets see the names appearing. Shock

Don't think fundraising for Bridlington next year is such a good idea. Any amount you can hope to raise from this will be like a drip falling in an ocean when you consider how many players attend Bridlington and it would need to be distributed evenly.

The whole point of fundraising this year was to try and get our teams to the World Championships in France where there is absolutely no prizemoney.

At least in Brid you have a chance of covering your costs in prizemoney.

We are a long way short of raising the necessary funds for France, so lets not lose sight of what we are all trying to achieve.

Oh, and stick me down for the singing.

now maxi dont want to get involved in a petty arguement but we have to look at getting funds for bridlington where more people play.if we start now we have a real chance of making an impact in every sections funds for next year.we will also get the support of everyone if we have a bridlington fund seperate to an international fund.what do people think on this.

Why not share the proceeds? After all, every little helps.

I just think there is a huge concerted effort to raise fund for the International fund, and now you want to dilute this to fund Bridlington.

Facts are there are around 30 people going to France to have the International fund split between so it can make a big difference to those attending.

At Bridlington there are approx 45 in mens teams. 18 in seniors teams, around 20 odd in ladies teams, around 30 specials, around 45 Y&J's.

So we are talking in the region of 160-170 players.

And we currently have approx 5k raised for the International fund with a target of around 10k to pay for their flights and accommodation.

If by some miracle you could raise ANOTHER 10k it would mean around 60 per player. So would perhaps pay a couple of nights B&B.

I am not trying to make a petty argument out of this, just trying to make everyone realise how futile raising funds for Bridlington is due to the sheer amount of players who attend.

Get your facts right Renzie, the learning disability section decided NOT to attend France. As they assumed their would be a B event in the UK they could attend instead. And Steve said as much at the EBA AGM, he said if they knew Selsey was cancelled they may have went to France.....

But don't let facts get in the way or anything.

So why not mention them to begin with rather than pick one section out and think you were being clever.

At the risk of repeating myself, there are too many players attend Bridlington to be able to raise sufficient funds to make it worthwhile.

How much prizemoney did you get for winning the European Masters per player for the Mens A team Renzie? 40 odd each?

And every single person said how you spend approx 500 for the week, probably more and only get that in prizemoney and it's worthless. But that is exactly the type of figure your talking about raising for these same players.

Unless you can raise around 30k it won't even make a dent.

The difference in raising money for France is that it's all about the prestige of playing for medals and not money.

It's been brought up at SPA meetings countless times and it always ends the same way, Bridlington cannot be subsidised due to the numbers attending.

Raising money to send teams to France is the difference in having Scotland represented in all divisions.

How many Scottish teams attended Swaziland or Germany?

The International fund needs to raise as much as it can, and I feel your suggestions will derail this process and dilute the potential funds.

But that is just my opinion.
