  1. Sorry to hear you ill. Get well soon. (John G)

  2. People often say that no-one is irreplaceable. This certainly does not apply to Steve Adams, it will be impossible to replace this great guy who got on well with everyone he met, and always worked his socks off with cheerfulness and massive enthusiasm. He was always happy to stop and chat about all things Wednesday. I am sure that his friends, all Wednesday fans who met him, the schools he visited, Wednesdayite who helped to fund his Tricky Wingers activities, will all remember him with fondness. My sincere condolences to his family. I will miss him and his
  3. To be fair James, the "irrational critics or abusers" (your words not mine) tend to be in here whenever anything is done by Wednesdayite. Perhaps a more "rational" place could be found. ;)
  4. Please let it rest James. I do not want to get involved in any more arguments between individuals. I think I have had my fair share these over the past few years. Just relax and start the New Year without this stuff. That's what I hope to do.
  5. Thanks for that Kevin. Let us hope that everyone feels the same. I accept the point about publicity and communication but as you can see from this thread, there are many pitfalls. John
  6. Theold rules as you might recall from your time on the Wednesdayite Board, said more than what you have quoted. They actually allow for funds to be transfered to a similar organisation with similar aims and requirements. When the problem started to be addressed, it was immediately thought that transferring the funds to a different unconnected organisation would be the best course of action and it was this which was being investigated. At all times, after the embarassment of the earlier failure, we were trying our best to deal with the issue in the best possible way for everyone who had any of
  7. For the same of clarity, and in the hope that this personal abuse rubbish can stop, the remaining members of the Wednesdayite Board did not attempt to transfer the 'old funds' to the new entity. The legacy funds were 'ringfenced' until a proper pathway could be found to deal with them properly. Despite comments on here, the funds were never 'lost' and the intention was always to use them as required by the 'rules'. The new entity, as reported to the members and with their approval, was set up to carry on the core activities plus any others which could be delivered by the remaining few volunt
  8. I am sure that the few people who work hard on match days in the Wednesdayite car park will be pleased with the first two posts in this thread back on page 1. It is the car park volunteers efforts which have raised the funds to purchase the hats whilst providing a much appreciated service. Sadly, the third post started off nicely but was spoiled by the second paragraph. As often happened previously and predictably, the thread has quickly gone from positivity to become a source of unnecessary argument and personal conflict. That is why most of those who were trying to sort things have stopped
  9. Attendances? - Probably much higher than the number of grumblers on here.
  10. My early impression of this thread was that Neil was using it to create an "Owlstalk Discussion" as he has done so many times previously, a view which was reinforced by the appearance of the "Piegate Scandal" title. Peter, in his attempts to support the Academy, has set up a couple of Hirsty's Bar events and has received support and encouragement from staff at SWFC. As I understand it, he was originally quoted a price for the event which was thought, at the time, likely to put people off. A decision was made to leave out the food option this time and get the events under way as soon as
  11. No glossing over going on! Issues are being looked at and will be reported on when there is something to report. There is nothing wrong with people asking questions and these are being noted, but sometimes patience is needed while issues are being progressed.
  12. Reesh There isn't a silence. Current members of Wednesdayite, many of whom have been members for several years, have been informed of the situation and of suggestions for the future. Members were given an opportunity to ask questions and vote on proposals either at the members' meeting held after the Forest match or by using an online ballot. As is proper, a report of this meeting will shortly be on its way to members. I hope that this report will be published on the Wednesdayite web site in due course. We have not sought to deny any errors, nor have we blamed others for mistakes whic
  13. An official and complete report of the meeting will be posted on the Wednesdayite web site as soon as possible. As far as the car park is concerned, preparation of the site before each match along with more efficient and effective ticketing, accounting and analysis have led to several improvements. Paul's "post match analysis" has led to tweaking of the procedures and has also indicated an increase in the number of non-members (and visiting fans) using the car park. During the close season, a huge amount of work - mainly by Paul and Jeff - has created more useable space on the site
  14. Oh and despite what the blue spectacled person might have suggested (sorry I lost track of most of it) we are not interfering in any way with this new group.
  15. The arguments on here were, especially lately, primarily personal disputes and were not related to the work which Wednesdayite was doing to ensure that the core activities could continue. These include getting the car park ready, sorting out the Lounge arrangements, setting up the Away Travel for the season, making arrangements for distributing Smile tickets and of course the Primary Schools coaching scheme - as well as planning what could be done in the coming season to support the SWFC Academy, Community Programme and SW Ladies. These have all being going on for many years now and we were
