Keep an eye on the weather and check here or social media for updates.
It was a funny old day as I gathered all of my stuff and headed off to create a selling pitch at the top of Castle Street but then the heavens opened and I could not get going.
I went back when the rain stopped but by then it was a bit gloomy and it seemed that folk were scurrying home before more rain came.
However, before packing it in for the day I popped in to see our friends at The Orcadian Bookshop. Low and behold they handed me £150 from books sales in the shop!!
Needless to say I was delighted and it proves that some folk are still buying the book, perhaps, as Christmas presents, but maybe for other reasons too. Which is great news.
The Orcadian staff have been brilliant helping us with the book from start to finish of this project. It involved all of their office and production staff initially and we got good support with the promotion of the book through their journalists. Then the bookshop staff helped us to promote and sell the book. ORFC are delighted with the help we have received from all of The Orcadian staff and it is a big thank you to each and everyone of them.
Logo staff also deserve a mention too because Mary and her folk also sold books for us in the early days.
So I’m a happy man and will try again next Saturday to sell a few books for Christmas but I will move my pitch over beside the supermarkets in town as The Orcadian Bookshop is obviously doing so well for us in town.
Have a nice festive folks and call me on 878339 or 07415 680706 if you want to buy a book for a loved one or yourself – at only £25 its a bargain and its packed full of interesting stories and statistics about the development of Orkney Rugby Club over the 50 years of its existence.
The club runs a very successful "50" Club with an average 100 members each month and this raises a sum in the region of £1,000 per annum, which helps pay for travel costs, making the "50" Club a major source of fund-raising for the club and as such the continued support of existing members is of vital importance.
We would also like to increase the number to reach the 150 if at all possible.
There is a monthly draw of the existing members which takes place at each monthly committee meeting.
Each member pays £2.00 per share per month with 50% of the income going out in prizes.
You may take as many shares as you wish.
If you are not a member please complete the bankers order below and return it to Olga Burton, Raasay, Grainpark, Kirkwall KW15 1UL or alternatively you may send a cheque for £24.00 for each share you wish, or you can set up a Standing Order, this will ensure your place in the monthly draws for one year.
Please email quantity of shares to firstname.lastname@example.org if not sending back the below form. Cheques should
be made payable to Orkney Rugby Football Club and sent along with the form to me.
N.B. Those who filled in a bankers order in the past need not do anything, unless of course you wish to purchase more shares.
