With the conclusion of the BSPA AGM at the weekend it was officially confirmed that the Edinburgh Monarchs will run again in 2018, great news ahead of the Trust’s AGM this Friday evening. This will be the 70th year of the Monarchs and we are already looking forward to another exciting season.
As a result of this we are able to announce more prizes for our end of season Draw, first prize in the draw is £500 cash. Two sets of 4 hospitality tickets for a Monarchs match of your choice has been added to the list of prizes already announced. You can buy tickets online or find out more information about the draw here. Please make sure you get all tickets returned to a committee member before Fridays draw, contact us via the mailbox if you need assistance with this.
At a recent committee meeting the club again reiterated that the Monarchs Fans Trust is one of the reasons it is able to function and commit to racing in what is a turbulent time for the sport. It was an expensive end to the season for the club but thanks to the contributions of our members we have been able to help soften that blow and cover some of these costs. The Trust donated £2,000 more than our normal monthly contribution during September and £5,000 more in October. The committee discussed this at length at the last 3 meetings with the motivation being that we can help the club start preparations for 2018 with a clean slate so the board can focus on making our 70th Year another successful one.
It is our members who make this happen and the committee of the Trust and the club can’t thank you enough for the getting behind speedway in the east of Scotland. All donations large and small add up to some fantastic numbers and at the end of the 3rd year of the Trust we are so pleased with the progress we have made. We encourage all members to attend the AGM on Friday to find out more, 7.30pm in the bar at Armadale Stadium. Please come along and get involved, it is your Trust!
