As you will all be aware we were due to have our AGM this Sunday. Due to a number of factors we have decided to postpone the AGM. The main issues are the Scottish Government’s delay of the move to phase 4, the current outbreak in Coupar Angus and the lock down until Monday of some of our members who work at the Chicken Factory. The last point would have prevented some of our members from attending. We will communicate a new date and arrangements for the AGM as soon as it has been agreed. Thank You for your understanding in this matter.
All Members are entitled to make proposals to introduce changes to the organisation, rules and running of the club at the AGM. Any member who wishes to make a proposal for debate and decision at the AGM should detail it in an e-mail to Andy Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org by COP 23/8/20.
All Office Bearers and Committee positions are due for election/re-election at the AGM. Anyone wishing to apply for one of the positions should forward their details to Andy Simpson on email@example.com by COP 23/8/20. Each application needs to be supported by a proposer and Seconder. For reference the positions are – Chairman, Bus Convenor, Treasurer, Secretary, Social and Fund Raising Secretary and Committee Member.
The BRSC committee met, to discuss preparations for resumption of club activity, as and when we are able to. It is clear, it will be some weeks, before football in Scotland, is played in front of anything other than token crowds. In the meantime however it is important that we do whatever we can to ensure the club and our members are fully prepared for the restart of our activities. To that end we are planning to hold an AGM at the end of this month. There are some important discussions and decisions this year as we adjust to whatever the new normal is. This is the first of a series of communications we will issue in advance of the AGM. The current plan is to hold the AGM at 10 am in the Gig on Sunday 30th August. It is earlier than normal as the Gig is now being used as a public Bar during opening hours. No alcohol will be served or consumed at the meeting. The meeting will of course comply in all respects with the latest Scottish Government COVID19 regulations. Arrangements for the meeting may change at short notice as a result of any changes to Covid19 regulations or the football calendar.
One of our members, Elise Imison is doing the Blue All Over Fun Run. See the link below if you wish to sponsor her.
You will all be aware by now that the e-mails are out for the renewal of Season Tickets. It is important that the BRSC has accurate information on which members have Season Tickets. This information is included in our registration with Rangers. It is also used by Rangers to determine what our allocation of tickets for Cup Finals, Semi-Finals and away matches should be.
We request therefore that all members inform Shirley Stark when they have renewed their Season Tickets. You can do this by e-mailing Shirley on firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning/texting her on 07747 085 725.
When you contact her can we ask that you confirm your Rangers Number, Contact Phone Number, e-mail address and whether you have joined My Gers.
If any member is not renewing can we ask that they inform us ASAP as we may be able to get another member who wants a season ticket to take it on.
We previously announced that the 2020 BRSC AGM would be held on Sunday the 7th of June, which is just 4 weeks away. Although we are expecting announcements from both Nicola Sturgeon and Boris Johnson on the way ahead today, I think it is safe to assume we will be unable to hold our AGM on that date. The AGM is therefore cancelled and we will publish details of the new date. time and venue as soon as we are in a position to do so.
In the meantime we will try to progress as much as we can through notices, facebook and e-mail. If you are aware of any members who are unlikely to receive updates by any of the above methods please pass any information on.
Something creative to pass the time for the young and maybe not so young. If you have any problems downloading or printing I can e-mail a copy. Just drop me a line on email@example.com
The Blairgowrie Rangers Supporters Club and the Donald Cargill Memorial LOL had booked Howes shop in Blairgowrie for the week commencing Friday 3rd April. As a result of the guidance on social distancing given by the Government yesterday, the decision has been taken to cancel this shop.
We have another shop booked for later in the year and hopefully by that time, things will be back to normal. We will advise on the details for that shop nearer the time.
Rangers vs Celtic, SPL, Sunday 15th March, Ibrox, Kick Off 1200
As you will all be aware the game this Sunday has been cancelled. As a result our bus is also cancelled.
It is not clear what will happen with the planned fixtures for the rest of the league season. If they are to be played at a later date we will organise transport as soon as we know what is happening.
If the League Season is not to be completed we will hopefully be back to normal for next season and we will communicate our plans when they are known.
We have a Committee meeting tomorrow at 1200 in the Cartwheel and one of the things we will discuss is whether people want to do something socially and what is practical in the interim. If you have any proposals for this please let one of the Committee know or feel free to come along to the meeting and join the discussion.
