I think one of the biggest problems you’ll have in getting people to bring their own flags is the potential hassle they’ll get when leaving the ground.

 

We’ve all seen the social media photos and vids of people walking out with flags, which have obviously been helpful on the whole, as it’s mainly been folk taking your flags.

 

I don’t really know how you get round that tbh. Guess you just hope that the natural evolution of things is that fewer and fewer people take your flags 🤷🏽‍♂️

Aye. TBH we'd already rocked to 'the other side' after the first bout of publicised "thefts". Sadly we have to expect that some of the flags will inevitably be taken, but we have to live in the hope that people can distinguish between what is Wor Flags and what isn't. Ultimately, we want to generate a culture where the fans bring their own of their own accord so it seems senseless creating a culture that prevents just that. However, we do have a duty of care for those who donate and looking after their respective donations accordingly.

 

We're currently looking into alternatives; pole bins for example, where fans can bring their own flag, pole it up, use it and easily fold it up for after when they wanna go to the pub. Also perhapd using some form of sticker system at the turnstiles etc just to whack on the flag or pole to identify it isn't wor flags. 

 

There's a whole host of ideas but it's finding the one that benefits all, most. We don't want to be labelling all our flags as it has the potential to add 5seconds to the putting together of each flag. Which sounds ridiculous but isn't when we do this en masse. We have to be lean, because volunteers already spend a great deal of time. Even over recent weeks when most people have been footy free, some of our lasses and lads have been in depoling/repoling and redistributing and that's before the new purchases come in to replace the knackered ones.

 

In all honesty, this summer has been a wake up call for us to become more organised and ensure we aren't carrying excess waste and mapping out where we keep certain materials and tools. The takeover has been one hell of an enjoyable headache for us in some senses, and just as the club is growing, so are we, some of which you'll see in the coming weeks.

 

Sorry for waffling by the way... Just giving some insight... :lol:

It’s funny how memory works - the displays had sort of fell out of the front of my mind, then this thread pops up again and I remember how fucking great Wor Flags are

 

All the best to those top folks involved, looking forward to what they do this season

Absolute shock [emoji38] 

 

@Heron is there something different planned for the forest game or are we just going big on flags and surfers?

There's been one or two plans that haven't quite come together for this fixture but that should hopefully do so in the games to come. So more of similar stuff for now I'm afraid but hopefully setting the right tone.

Everyone will be absolutely bang up for it tomorrow, I think it's probably one game where a showpiece display isn't really required. Can't wait to be back in there.

I hope so. Difficult to replicate the Arsenal game every week and nor would you want to, you could argue. For us it's just about setting the right tone again and building up to those big games/events.

Ritchie says. “When they roar, you feel that energy. Wor Flags deserve so much credit. The effect they’re having on the club – they’ll go down in history. This place will be famous as the stadium of flags. The noise, the hostility. They’re our tool.”
 

:love:
