Well, more of a talk really on our club and its glorious past, being given by Ian King at the Croydon ClockTower Centenray exhibition next Monday evening.

You need to get a ticket in advance and their are only a limited number of places, but it is FREE!

You need to reserve your ticket by calling the Clock Tower Box office on 020 8253 1030, but please only reserve a ticket if you are definately coming.

If you haven't yet been to the Centenary Exhibition, it'll be a great way to kill two birds with one stone.

I thought this was a thread for people who would get nagged prior to the Valentine's Day fixture :o

I think so, but ring 'em up to check.

Closes sometime in March so don't leave it too long though.

During the interval, the RNFC will be delivering the 2006 Ron Noades Memorial Lecture.

A collection will also be taken. No coins please.

How long is a piece of string - probably finish around nine o'clock
but there will probably be a bit oif discussion/Q & A at the end
unless I've been heckled out of the room !!

As agreed, don't try any strong arm recruitment tactics at this event - you are likely to meet with hostility.

We need to concentrate on tomorrows Beer Hall Putsh to get the numbers up.

Thankyou Ian for that excellent talk, I really feel that I learnt a great deal about the history of our beloved club, especially the formative years

Judging by your posts, that wouldn't be much of a problem for you...

BTW, well done Ian. A lot of stuff I hadn't heard before...

Very interesting evening. Thank you Ian.

Surprised there wasn't more there.

Equally surprised that the centenary project had a meeting the same time - I would have thought this would have been great interest to them (Don?)

Unfortunately got dragged out before the time I was particularly interested in - starting from the ascent up the leagues circa 1960.

Is there any more planned? What was the video for?
