9th Central Midlands League `Ground Hop`

Again we have managed to revert back to our regular Friday evening fixture and four on the Saturday.

We kick-off at 7.45pm on Friday 16th March 2012 with a trip to the Brian Wakefield Memorial Ground as hosts Bilborough Pelican entertain Belper United in the Black Dragon South Division.

On Saturday 17th March 2012, we begin with a trip to the Norman Archer Memorial Ground, the home of Clifton FC as they host Real United in the Black Dragon South Division at 10.10am, before we head to the Greenwich Avenue Ground to see another two league newcomers, where Basford United face Notts Police at 1.00pm in the Black Dragon Division South.

We then cross over Counties to Derbyshire to the Stonelow Playing Fields, where Dronfield Town face Thoresby CW in a Black Dragon North Division match at 4.30pm, before finishing at the Hall Corner Park, where Glapwell play local rivals Parkhouse FC at 7.30pm.

Transport

As in previous Bonanzas, a coach will be booked for the event to transport hoppers between games. Coach transport is only available on the Saturday, and can be booked separately or as a package.

The pick-up point for the Saturday Morning will be Nottingham Railway Station and on Saturday evening will going back to Nottingham Railway Station.

A timetable will be available with your ticket. Please note that the coach travel must be booked in advance.

Please Note though there is NO coach on Friday, there are lots of Buses and Trains to near Nottingham Railway Station to Bilborough Pelican and I will include this information in with the information pack with your tickets.

Accommodation

As in previous years, we have decided not to make any bulk accommodation arrangements for this event, and to let you do your own thing. With the coach leaving Railway Railway Station on Saturday morning, it may be wise to book bed and breakfast in the Nottingham area.

Programmes etc

All clubs will be made aware of the number of programmes that will be needed on the day. The number will be based on the response to these forms, so please tell us if you intend coming to the event! Programmes will be reserved for those buying advance tickets only, as they will be included in the ticket price (see below). The only guaranteed way of obtaining a match programme will be through the advance ticket. As before, we will have them `packaged` so that all five programmes can be collected at the first match.

Copies will obviously be available at the grounds too, but at the full price, and availability will be subject to demand. Extra programme packs must be paid for when ordering your advanced ticket.

Match Tickets

Year in, year out, you can rely on us to come up with a bargain, and this event is no exception!! Advance tickets for the CML Bonanza offer a substantial discount. Admission to each game will be priced at £3, and programmes at £1.

An advance ticket will be priced at £15, giving admission and a programme for all five games. That’s a big saving of £5 – effectively we’ll give you your programmes for free. Admission is available on the day for those who do not wish to buy tickets in advance.

Please remember if you buy a advanced ticket, it helps the away club as well, as entrance money on the day, only goes to the home club. So for a few extra quid, if you are missing say one or two matches, then please think about supporting the away clubs as well as the home ones who make the event possible, because without their help, the event wouldn’t be possible.

Certificates

Certificates will be presented to each hopper who attends all the matches who purchases an Advanced Ticket. These will be inserted inside your programme packs, this saves on printing too many or not enough. The certificate comes as part as your package.

Trading

Club badges will be available on the day at all clubs, and no doubt lots of other people will be selling things at the grounds too!

If you wish to bring a stall or stand to all or any of the games, please contact Rob Hornby (01623 – 486678) as soon as possible for arrangements to be made with the host clubs.

`Unofficial` trading of the kind that normally goes on at these events is positively encouraged at all of the grounds on the hop. If you want to flog some programmes that you happen to have in the boot of your car or whatever, that’s fine with us. The only proviso we make for traders is that you MUST hold a ticket for the event. This was decided on after someone turned up at Nettleham and just decided to trade without permission and without a ticket. SAEs

When booking for the Hop, remember to include an A5 (that’s the normal size of a programme) stamped addressed envelope for your tickets to be sent out to you. Please check your envelopes carefully, some people are still getting this wrong resulting in extra charges from the Post Office. In this case, extra payment will need to be made before your tickets are despatched, so please get this right!

Booking and Payment

You may book for the Hop by completing the attached Booking form, and returning with your payment and the above mentioned A5 SAE.

Once payment has been cleared you will receive your tickets etc. If you are using the coach, then can you please let me know early, so I can cater for everyone.
