October 5th - Speaker - Martyn Sadler [editor, League Express]

The man with contacts in high places!

Martyn started by informing us that we should be thanking him for his recent actions. Martyn had phoned Steve McNamara and asked him to include 6 Giants players in the touring squad so that tonight's audience would be gentle on Martyn!

He went on to bemoan the fact that The Greatest Game has an abysmal record in promoting the sport. National media coverage was at its lowest since the 1895 split. The sport desperately needs someone who knows how to 'manipulate' the media.

It was as a result of Wakefield's - Martyn's team - famous victory in 1988 over the, at the time, unstoppable Wigan and the total lack of press coverage which sowed the seeds of RL League Express. Martyn realised that not only did supporters of the successful teams want to read about their heroes but fans from the less fashionable clubs did also. It took over 2 years of planning, and in 1990 the first League Express was published.

In closing, Mick Beevers thanked Martyn for an excellent evening's entertainment. Dave Calverley reminded the audience about the Curry Night [Thursday October 21st] and the urgency to let him know how many would be attending.

Next meeting – Curry Night, 21st October [please let me know - 07887 878 425];
- Tuesday 2nd November – Guest – Chris Roberts [Huddersfield Examiner].

Just a note to thank the Giants' supporters for your very friendly and hospitable reception last night.
I enjoyed the discussion and the enthusiasm of everyone who was there.
May I wish you and the Giants all the best, with an expanding fanbase and a growing number of supporters joining the Supporters' Association.

Curry Night

The Curry Night was an excellent evening. Those who went thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had a wonderful meal at the Chutney Mahal.

Cardiff

If there is a sufficient response there will be a bus going to Cardiff just for the Saturday matches. Work on a price of around £25, but this will be confirmed once the trip is viable.

Next Tuesday, 2nd November

Tuesday sees Chris Roberts from the Examiner coming to chat with us. 7:30 for a 7:45 start.
