Brief & to the point:

1. The Quiz Night was an excellent evening. Everyone enjoyed the 'Quiz With a Difference'.

2. Next meeting is on Tuesday, 10th August, 7:30 for 7:45 start. Guests: James Deighton [Radio Leeds], + others tba. Venue: Turnbridge WMC.

3. Regular monthly meetings at Turnbridge WMC, 2nd Tuesday of every month for the foreseeable future. [Tuesday is the most popular judging from the paper questionnaire and the various forums' questionnaires [full results will be posted when I have a bit more time].

4. Additional meeting in September [provisionally 4th Tuesday] to appoint the committee and formulate the 'mission statement'[!] [volunteers anyone?].

I am aware that I don't post much these days, but it would be great to see some [all?] of you next week.

Join Huddersfield Giants Supporters Association and become a Ghostbuster!

This week the Huddersfield Giants Supporters Association had James Deighton as their guest speaker.

Mick Beavers welcomed JD, Mr Rugby League on Radio Leeds, who gave an entertaining insight into the life of a media reporter. Stories ranged from ‘entertaining’ episodes at Wakefield to the nakedness of a well known Rugby League coach.

In conclusion James told the tale of how he frightened the living daylights out of one of Rugby League’s hard men [no names!].

As a child, James found out that his house in Leeds was haunted. He recounted many sightings by his whole family of a sceptre from the middle ages. It transpired that the ghost was the spirit of the person who buried victims of the plague – the burial ground being beneath James’ house!

The doctor who moved into the house after the Deighton family had left lasted 2 ½ week! There are reports that the visits are still happening.

In conclusion, Dave Calverley thanked James for a very entertaining evening.

The next meeting – for all supporters - will be at Turnbridge WMC on Tuesday, 7th of September with the first AGM on the 21st September, at the same venue.

For further details please contact Dave on 07887 878 425 or e-mail da.calverley@PhotoLens.co.uk.

Please note the change of dates. I have made, let’s say, an error!

Meetings will now be on the FIRST Tuesday of every month. Mick has done an outstanding job with the speakers so far and his list of potentials is never ending!

The initial AGM, as stated above, will be on the 3rd Tuesday [21st] of September. The attachment is a nomination form for the election of the trust’s officers. [It is NOT a closed shop so feel free to nominate people.]

There will probably be a Curry Night on the 3rd Tuesday of October [19th] at the Chutney Mahal [bottom of Chapel Hill].

With regard to the website, please follow the links on each page to view the proposed version [click here].

The new site is nowhere near perfect yet. And the address you see in your browser is a temporary one. This version of the site should go 'live' towards the end of October with the 'true' address [www.GiantsSupporters.co.uk].

Please let me have your thoughts [click here].

October 5th - Speaker - Martyn Sadler [editor, League Express]

The man with contacts in high places!

Martyn started by informing us that we should be thanking him for his recent actions. Martyn had phoned Steve McNamara and asked him to include 6 Giants players in the touring squad so that tonight's audience would be gentle on Martyn!

He went on to bemoan the fact that The Greatest Game has an abysmal record in promoting the sport. National media coverage was at its lowest since the 1895 split. The sport desperately needs someone who knows how to 'manipulate' the media.

It was as a result of Wakefield's - Martyn's team - famous victory in 1988 over the, at the time, unstoppable Wigan and the total lack of press coverage which sowed the seeds of RL League Express. Martyn realised that not only did supporters of the successful teams want to read about their heroes but fans from the less fashionable clubs did also. It took over 2 years of planning, and in 1990 the first League Express was published.

In closing, Mick Beevers thanked Martyn for an excellent evening's entertainment. Dave Calverley reminded the audience about the Curry Night [Thursday October 21st] and the urgency to let him know how many would be attending.

Next meeting – Curry Night, 21st October [please let me know - 07887 878 425];
- Tuesday 2nd November – Guest – Chris Roberts [Huddersfield Examiner].

Just a reminder that next Tuesday [1st February] Mick has organised Nigel Wood of the RFL to come along and speak to us. I’m sure there are many questions we would like to put to him!! Town are at home this night, so be wary of where you park otherwise the car park man might try and charge you. Stick to the club side.

Our first Wednesday meeting [16th February] will be a games evening. £1 per person to enter with the winner collecting a substantial monetary reward for his/her efforts! Bring along some guests so that we can have am all-action event!!

In the near future we will be honoured to have as our guest our Club Chairman, Ken Davy. I’m awaiting confirmation from Ken, but we have pencilled in the 3rd Wednesday in April. This will be an all ticket event limited to 75 attendees. Initially it will be open to members only. So if you are a member you have until the end of February to order your [free] ticket. After that they will go on sale to other supporters at a price of £2 [I’m sure a fellow committee person will correct me if I’m wrong with the price]. So, if you’re not a member why not join now for only a couple of pounds more than the cost of seeing Ken? Visit the website for an on-line or downloadable form:
www.giantssupporters.co.uk/Forms/Membership.html.


Remember that all our events are to be found on the Calendar pages of our website:
www.GiantsGupporters.co.uk/Editorial/Calendar_2011.html.
