Now then... recently the club finances came under scrutiny, so we have put a new process in place to protect the team and myself from accusations.
But, I've been really really surprised by the fact that you guys think we deserve a portion of the pot for the work that we put in to keep this place going.

The admin team and I do put a lot of hours into this place on a purely voluntary basis. The membership fee and proceeds from stickers etc go towards hosting the website, buying flags and banners etc. Anyway, I digress. A new PayPal account was set up completely independent and separate from any of the admins, so we can ensure that any withdrawals are legit.

This has left us with a redundant PayPal account that no longer gets used... so I thought why not use it in some way.

If anyone feels that they want to give their support to the team rather than the club itself, you can now do so by chucking a few beer tokens to us via PayPal... or just buy one of us a drink at an event. This isn't a plea or a beg to anyone, but I'm not gonna lie and say that the team don't deserve a free pint every now and again, even if it is just because they put up with my crazy shenanigans. So if you feel that we deserve some sort of recompense for the work we put in, you now have the chance to do it.

Any money collected will get split between the admins (we'll argue %'s between ourselves).

This thread will be stickied so that you can view it.

The PayPal address to use is team@elgrandoc.uk.

Thanks in advance to all of you for the support you give the club, because without you we wouldn't have a club to run!

And just as a side note, any money put into this pot will NOT go back into EOC. Any money given will be split between the team members and we will use it to treat ourselves. Just want to make that clear.

You are more than welcome, people were not kidding when they said they appreciate the back scene hours and crap you sometimes take for little reward to help us all with our purchases

Not sure I'm confortable with this...
Dont, When i first brought my van the thermostat had gone and i didnt even realise. This site told me what the problem was and how to fix it for the grand total of £8, I had a stuck caliper, this site advised me of the problems of the sticky slide pins and taught me how to fix it. That fix cost me £7 for a new pin. People have talked me through changing the filters to service it by myself, i meet people regularly now through this site (tonight is one of the those times) and have had a few good days out from it. £12 a year and a couple of pints is worth it everyday of the week!!
@RobP you cant have one out the funds, ill put one in your hand myself in a couple of weeks in whitby ;)
