As most of you know already we have a Dinner planned at Highgate House on Saturday 17th January after Blackpool at home.
It will be the tried and trusted formula of a 5 course meal, speeches and presentations, disco and some drinking along the way into the early hours. As in every other year done with a heavy subsidy from club funds – that’s your money we’re spending!
After several aborted attempts over the last 12 months or so this one needs to go ahead before they become a distant memory.
To do that we need YOU!
Why do we need you? Because as a member of this supporters club we need your support for our functions, and throughout our 39 years the standard of our Dinners is what has stood us apart from the other Wolves Supporters Clubs.
Also if this one fails to take place again, I won’t attempt to put one on for the 40th Anniversary at Molineux next year as it’s 5 times the effort and if people aren’t interested in dinners any more then I can accept that and move on.
Similarly with guests past and present from the football club. I’m more than willing to chase around for VIP’s to come for the evening – but not until I have a strong enough commitment from the members for it to go ahead. 3 times in the last year I have had to relay back that our event was now not going ahead due to lack of support by the members.
So to go ahead I need 60 of you to commit to come on the 17th of January, BY THE END OF OCTOBER, should that fail then I can have an easy life and we’ll think of something else to spend our time and money on.
Sorry to sound so stroppy about this, but a lot of effort goes into making the dinners a success each year – it’s like having a family wedding every year – and three times I’ve tried in the last 12 months so this is your last chance!
Please reply by email either way so I know where I stand and can either press on with the arrangements or cancel in good time.
