Our annual Quiz night has been arranged for Thursday 7th November 20.00 start. This very popular evening of laughter and heavy thinking is not to be missed. A team of four or less with an entry cost of only £1.00 per person is the norm, and all proceeds go to our annual charity fund raising. Last year was a record year for the sum raised, so the bar is set to better it. We give very good prizes out for the winners and hold a really good raffle with lots of wonderful prizes. Remember the date and be at the Heanor Miners Welfare Club early on Thursday 7th November. Your quiz master this year is Mr Graham Waterfall.

We are sad to tell you that the mother of Steve Housley one of our committee persons passed away recently. To Steve his family and all concerned we send our deepest condolences.
Membership fees will be collected on the first few weeks of the season on the buses to the games. The fee is £1.00 per adult and free for children under 12 years of age.
To all existing members the good news is that nothing has changed from all arrangements as you know them. For anyone wanting to become a member then it could not be easier. Just embark on a bus going to a home game or an away game, pay £1.00 and you will be given a membership card which you are asked to carry with you every time you attend a game. The bus fare to a home game is £5.00 return to Pride Park. One way journeys are costed at £3.00. Non members are asked for £6.00 which with the extra £1.00 you could pay membership and pay £5.00 every trip. The times and pick up places are to be found on the Upcoming Fixtures page.
Away games. members wanting to go to away games have to fill in a form giving the full deatils of what the form asks for. This is not Heanor Rams rules it comes from the DCFC ticket office. Details regarding this procedure are more advanced on the Upcoming Fixture page
Special events are always being arranged. In November we have a Quiz night then in December we have our annual Dinner evening. Weekend trips will be arranged so that where there may be an away game in the vicinity of Blackpool or Cardiff a weekend jaunt is planned so any one can have a day by the sea, go to the game, evening entertainment, and have an enjoyable occasion. (If the Rams win).
The Branch has run a weekly number draw for many years and numbers are available for anyone who wants to join. Cost is 50p per number, per week, and prizes of £12, £8 and £5 are currently paid out every week though this can increase if additional people take part. Steve Housley now runs the draw, yet you can ask any committee member if you are interested in joining.
During the season fund raising events are staged with the proceeds going to a local charity. This charity is decided upon members submitting a charity for the committee to decide upon. If you have a charity in mind then you are most welcome to suggest this to any committee person.
