Fund raising
It is pleasing to read of the various fundraising efforts taking place. The effort made by Nottingham supporters is particularly moving.
I have had a little idea buzzing around my feeble brain for some time and I offer it here for comment.
The idea might be called 'And a pint for the club' and basically it involves adding the price of a pint to a round of drinks. To make accounting easier the 3 could be put into a labelled bucket on the bar. I fully appreciate that this seems to be an additional cost on the 10 on the gate scheme just announced, but as both are entirely voluntary, it allows donations to be made to suit the pocket. Both schemes build on the idea of many people making relatively modest contributions. These are tough times but as my granny said as she p***ed in the ocean, 'Every little helps'.
I hope this does not tread on any toes, it is a only suggestion made for comment.

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday and having a chat and having a pint with you. You will find us all in the Rowe Honda supporters bar situated in the far left hand corner of the ground.

Re: Fund raising
An update.
A fine, upstanding and public sprited reader sent my suggestion to the club and they have decided to put the idea into action for the Nottingham game.
Buckets, tubs, gzunders or other suitable containers will be placed in the bars before the match. Please feel free to make a voluntary donation. The survival of professional rugby in Plymouth seems to me to be well worth the price of a pint.
I realise that I have shot myself in the foot because nobody will buy me a beer now because they will feel obliged to buy one extra. Buying my own beer will be a novel experience for me but you're never too old to learn.
Incidentally, I hope that The Redoubtable Mr Mule has swayed those who have forsaken Brickfields in favour of the local watering holes into reconsidering their decision.

Re: Fund raising
Excellent idea North End Rambler lets hope we get the price of a pint from all those who don't donate on the gate tomorrow, if we all get into the spirit of saving "our club" it will be a massive addition to the other monies.

The club is ailing, buy it a pint please.

Complete the following sentence:

'When my grannie has an urgent need 'to go' during the night she uses a receptacle which ______________ the bed'

She usually calls it her p***pot.
