    QOS Tanner Fund

    From Richie Nicoll on Twitter and Facebook pages ->


    Another step forward - finally confirmed bank accounts which means we can get it out there and get direct debits and payments!

    Please email QoSTannerFund@Hotmail.com or send your email through here and will give details

    Really could do to having a wee kick off meeting just to establish priorities and next steps... what about a wee poll with random dates... if you could
    Pick one if interested that would be favourable and if not then suggest another

    Monday 7th October

    Monday 14th October

    Thank you all for your offers of help with the fund and is gravely appreciated. As I am out of the country until last week of November I’m keen to get things moving especially on the committee front. I’m keen therefore to arrange a meeting in which I can dial into.

    To ensure complete transparency and peace and quiet I propose setting the first meeting away from Queens and as I have a classroom in Heathhall Business Park (with brew kit!) I propose to use this if this would be accessible for all?

    The bank account is expected to be operational some point through the week so we can push the direct debit requests out there, but keen to put heads together to a) elect a committee and b) chuck other fundraising ideas out there... top ideas so far are the likes of CarBoot Sales at Palmy CarPark etc..

    In regards to a committee I’d like the following positions to be cemented:

    Chairperson
    Deputy Chairperson
    Treasurer
    Secretary
    Fundraising Officer
    Social Media / Marketing / Advertising Guru

    If you would like to volunteer for a position please either highlight it on this thread or email QoSTannerFund@hotmail.com and proposal can be voiced at the Inaugural meeting.

    Ideally would look at a date in the next couple/weeks?

    Delighted this is finally kicking off. Personally think it’s a great idea and brilliant that’s its run by such a dedicated Queens supporter.
    Just happened to notice that Dumbarton FC are the latest club doing a similar scheme.

    great idea from richie ,as long as the funds go straight to the playing staff budget and not the board which has previously been stated by richie on the facebook site im sure it should help ,lets just hope queens board dont see an opportunity to reduce there own budget to incorporate the fans funds to replace it tho .

    I suppose it is along the lines of the £9,000 that the Barflies give Queens every year for Youth Development except any money
    raised by the Tanner Fund would be ring - fenced to go towards a player recruitment fund only.

    Give it a rest. You’re like a broken record.

    They (the Board) may still reduce the budget by the same figure as the "tanner fund" produces !

    I don’t think the BOD will know what’s in the pot to be honest.

    It’s a good idea and once all details are finalised I’ll be contributing.

    Hi Folks,

    Been a while since I've been on the madsite but palmylad had advised there were questions on here

    LuisXIV - the main objective of the fund is to have as many members as possible agreeing to set up a direct debit for whatever they can afford be it £5/10/15/20. This then gives us a projection as to what we could possibly agree to contribute towards the club.

    The fund is completely transparent and unaligned to the club however once we have a projected cashflow we will then approach the board (after the obvious assurances that they won't reduce the budget (musky). It has been suggested that we also carry out various fundraising events for one of donations etc which will be looked into further. The BoD have agreed to meet with me on return from Middle East so the official line can be agreed then

    I had originally suggested 2 dates on facebook and twitter for folk to vote on which would be the best, however the results were more or less equal so i will arrange a meet on both nights so that no one is excluded. To ensure that it is completely transparent also, I have volunteered my company classrooms for the meetings and I will dial in to one of the attendee's phones.

    Date: 7th & 14th October
    Time: 19:30
    Where: 213 SpitFire Rd, Heathhall Ind Estate. DG1 3PH (If you come in from heathhall side, turn right at Marchbanks and continue down the road and we're on the left)

    Please bring along yourself, your friends and family and most importantly your thoughts and ideas as this is going to be two 'sponge sessions' where we can establish a firm set of expectations. Also if you wish to volunteer yourself for a position on the committee please make yourself known on the night or email QoSTannerFund@hotmail.com

    MTS

    Forms with the Fund account details will be handed out to all that can attend

    Well folks that Meeting #1 out of the way! we had 6 in attendance which as little a number as it sounds was still a very positive start! If you would like a copy of the minutes that will be produced over the next few days, then please PM on here or email me on the QoSTannerFund@hotmail.com and I will send through.

    As a high level overview we discussed the visions of where we perceive the fund to be going, the transparency of the funds to the club and most importantly the biggest message is that people put in what they can afford.. no set fee, just to ensure for the sake of projections that we put the same fee in every month... loads of great ideas for fundraising activities also so its certainly got peoples attention. It was agreed by all that a proposed focus for first contribution would be the start of 20/21 season which gives us 10 months now to get funds in and allows us to analyse cashflow and in turn set realistic expectations.

    Hopefully when we have next weeks meeting, more people will come along too... i know there were a few calls offs tonight which happens but those have identified next week to come.

    One action I have agreed to take away tonight is to amend the account details sheet to include information and look to find an outlet to distribute them pre Dundee Utd game.....

    Thanks again to all those that came tonight and glad communications held on strong enough from over here...

    Really good first meeting last night which included some great ideas regarding possible fund raising ideas for the future. There’s also plenty supporters who couldn’t make the meeting interested in making either monthly or one off contributions. The QOS TANNER FUND account is now open and anyone interested should contact Richie on
