Mr Chairman accepted the resignation of Lauren Storrar and thanked her for the efforts as Membership Secretary.
On the last two home games the buses were parked in the layby opposite Travelodge. The stewards told the drivers this cannot continue and the bus can be parked on Millenium way. To save further confusion it was decided that the bus will park on Millenium Way at home games, for the foreseeable future.
The possibility of a Wembley play off was discussed. The date is Saturday 26th May. The required number of buses will be provisionally booked and the club will pay the ozone pollution charge.
The game verses Sheffield Wednesday is rearranged for Tuesday 20th January and bookings are being taken. There is a probability that travel will be with the Alfreton branch.
Reading (Sat 24th Feb) A bus is booked for this game. Room on the bus is available, alas no tickets. The bus will depart from Heanor at 09.00 and Hill Top at 09.15
Queens Park Rangers (Tuesday 6th March) Bookings being taken and may travel with Alfreton branch.
Nottingham Forest (Sunday 11th March) Coach booked with option of a double decker. Regular travellers will be given priority for tickets, yet seats will be available if you have your own ticket.
Any other business
There has been problems relating to the ticket allocation and collection for all away games. After a short discussion it was all sorted out to the understanding of all involved.
The date of Thursday March 1st was arranged for the next meeting.
The meeting closed at 21,40

Favourite Away ground: Bramall Lane for the day out in Sheffield
Worst Away ground: Yeovil. Not necessarily the ground itself but the whole day. Missed the first half an hour of the game due to a coach fire on the motorway. Then took an hour to get out of the car park after the match.
Why I support Derby County: My father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all Rams supporters, so its tradition. My dad first took me when I was 10 and I’ve been going ever since.
If only DCFC Moment: That we didn’t strengthen after finishing 5th in 1988-89. I believe that team was only 2/3 players short of challenging for major honours.
Thank you Andy, a very comprehensive profile.
