...for those who spend at least an hour helping get the ground ready on Saturday morning. They will post a notice to head to the ground on their website at 8am for 9am start. Not sure if this applies to Stones fans or not. However, the free admission will still stand for a rearranged fixture should Saturday's still fall foul of the weather.
Warm Regards from the Darling of the Messageboards who has seen a verifiable 204 different teams play at home.
This offer does indeed ONLY apply to those who help out in the morning, if a work party is needed.
We have no control over when it is postponed, if it si postpone,d all we can do is try our best to keep you informed.
As soon as we know it is off, if called off, well within five minutes or so of a decision being made, we will post it on our official website, www.pitchero.com/clubs/dulwichhamlet & it will then be picked up almost as quick by our unofficial Twitter & Facebook thingmayjigs.
few hours work around 0-2 degrees for a tenner...bargain.
I will happily pay my admission into the ground, good luck to those that go down and clear the snow away, I will save myself for the Gallaghers if any snow lands nearby on Tuesday and needs clearing away from the access to the grounds....COYS
“ What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love"
Clearly it's a job that will take all morning, it may be a pointless task, depending on how heavy the snowfall is, & how frozen the pitch is..
The minimum of an hour is merely mentioned because some of our fans may want to offer some help, but cannot commit to the full morning, due to work or family commitments, but can help out.
Feel free to continue mocking, i have no problem with that...all we are trying to do is beat the weather & have the game on. As already stated...it's aimed at our own fans, not yours, but thanks for showing your concern.
The added bonus being...if it is played NWS misses it!
No one is really mocking ya, I think there were just wonders if the helping out task involved stones fans (pretty silly really as if we help clear it, it could still be called off, waste of time and money travelling)
Nice to see a club trying very hard to get a game on, shame it seems other clubs don't try as hard, ie....HALIFAX - a "cabbage patch" according to their fans, we went up on the Tuesday, it was almost perfect!
Anyways fingers crossed the snow don't fall too much - been pretty pathetic in The Stone so far, would just about class it as sleet. Obviously it all depends on how frozen the pitch is as you say, but would be awesome if the game could go ahead
dear mr mishi, the minor mocking is aimed at fellow stones aswell. no need to be sensitive. i take my wooly hat off to you and yours for doing the maximum possible to get the game on. as said before, many clubs wouldnt be bothered.
Pointless pointer outerer awarderer 2017 and no doubt 2018 for pointless posts.
