That's really kind of you to offer. Unfortunately the schools don't return until after the Dundee United game so I can't distribute them through the schools.

 

I did contact Big Hearts but they already receive an allocation from the club.

 

I'm going to ask the TO to 'resell these tickets so it might be an option for you too? Any other time of the year and I'd be biting your hand off. Thanks again

Hi folks.

 

We'd spoken about this issue whereby the schools are closed and we can't get tickets for the first two games distributed through them. We'd thought that Big Hearts would be a good home for these games but sadly they already receive an allocation of tickets from the club and are unable to help us out.

 

In the circumstances I'm going to speak to the TO tomorrow and arrange for the seats for the Country and United games to be removed from the STs and made available for public sale. The issue of new ST cards this year has complicated things somewhat. 

 

Thanks as ever for your continued support.

I'm happy with this approach Paul.  My main concern at the moment is that I still haven't received my own ST and despite emailing the TO still haven't had a response so will head down tomorrow to try and sort things out.  I'm sure there won't be a problem, just hope the STs I donated are with you.  Let me know if not.  It may just be that I told them to hold onto your tickets to be collected and they've held onto mine as well.

Hi Paul,

 

Yes, more than happy for the tickets to be released for public sale.

Sorry folks - trust Hearts to muddy the waters at the 11th hour! LOL

 

With todays exchange announcement you now have the option to go online and 'sell' the tickets for the County/United games and receive 50% of the value, which given your generosity, seems more than reasonable. 

 

I need to give you that option. 

 

I was intending on going to Tynie today (now delayed as a result of this to tomorrow afternoon) so if I haven't heard from you by then, I'll simply ask the TO to make the seats available for public sale, without any credit to you - presuming that we're still able to do this the old way.

 

Just drop me a PM folks.

 

Cheers

Hi Paul - just trying to get my head around how the new ticket exchange might make things easier (or maybe the opposite !) in terms of donating resale tickets to schools through you.    Obviously it has to be 2  seats together - but am I right in thinking that the lateness of  when the resale tickets show up on the screen for a "sold out" match makes it almost impossible for you to do anything with them ?

 

Maybe a match v. Hibs/Celtic/Rangers would sell out quicker and so the ticket exchange screen would become available sooner ?

 

In other words, the ticket exchange isn't really any help  in terms of getting resale tickets to you   ?

 

Your scheme is such a brilliant idea, do you think its  worth asking the mods/admins what they think about using JKB funds to purchase a fixed number of match tickets (say 4  pairs of adult&child )  for  some games ?   That would come to about £200 for 4 pairs.  Individual fans on here could still donate tickets in the same way they do currently, of course.

Hi LS

 

The new scheme seems to be a real positive step and it's great that we're in a position where the demand is there.

 

In terms of us it really doesn't help us much - as you say, timescales could be an issue. We need at least 4/5 days to arrange pick up and then distribute them to schools. The schools need a bit of time to arrange to find them a good home - not always as easy as it sounds. You're right too in that it must be two seats together.

 

Seats can still be freed up using the old 'phone the TO' routre and I can pick them up and find a home for them. 

 

I hadn't approached JKB as they already do so much for 'charity' and already donate STs to the Sick Kids in Edinburgh.

 

Thanks very much for your positive words. It will be 10 years in November since we started this all thanks to Hearst fans generosity.

Thanks for that info about timescales  - so it sounds like a fan really needs to buy them at least 10 days  ahead of the match, so that you and the schools can have time to get them to pupils.    Is that a reasonable rule-of-thumb  do you think ?  

 

 I know its still school holidays, but looking at  available tickets right now for our next home game (Dundee Utd on the 14th)  the only area with 2 seats available right now is in Roseburn section K & L.   

 

Presumably that will be the case for all home league games (apart from Hibs)  ?

I think 4/5 days is fine. E tickets can be emailed to me and printed off and then delivered.

 

Donated tickets released from existing STs through the TO are similar to e tickets but just involve a visit to the TO to pick up.

 

Who knows how it will go. All depends on results/performances and not forgetting the little matter of the current financial crisis.
