    Basil, what are these new revenue streams? My apologies, I cannot remember what they are and it's just so much easier to ask you instead of wasting time trawling through looking for the answers. needle in a haystack springs to mind and less grief asking you. Cheers Bud

    I am sure he won't. Bazil is really really confident there is no appetite for saving the pot. I am equally as confident the tide is turning. All I want is the option to be available for members when all other options are uninspiring or downright ridiculous (footballs & goals for a top flight professional football club etc). There will be options that merit voting for but, looking to the future, I genuinely believe, having a rainy day fund will serve the club better especially as, income is up now, finances are healthy(ish) and we don't know what the landscape will look like then. Having a pot of cash then could make the world of difference.

    Do you ever stop to think, it is ok for folk to have differing opinions? You complain about what you perceive as folk complaining. The irony is not lost. The SMISA guys and I agreed we all want the same and that is the best for St Mirren and we acknowledged, its just how that is achieved that our thoughts differ. I respected their thoughts, opinions and arguments. Hopefully, reciprocated and if/when the need arises in the future, we will talk again. As they said, they are always willing to talk and it is much more productive than going back'n'forth by email or on a forum.

    Oh aye, i'll still be submitting a members resolution in time for the SMISA agm. That is Saving the pot is an option on all future votes. If the majority of voters choose to spend each and every vote, at least, we will all have had the option to save the pot (if voted for by 2/3 of those who vote at the agm That is all I am looking for. That option [emoji3]

    They did. There was a ps saying, if up and fancied meeting for a chat. So we did. [emoji3] My reply back was "as happens, i'll be up Tuesday." We met, had a chat. I appreciated the chance to sit down and have a natter about SMISA and hear things from the horses mouth (so to speak). I certainly have more understanding of the machinations and would recommend to anyone, if the opportunity arises, have a chat. As Maureen Lipman used to say "it's good to talk"

    Save the pot. It's like garlic bread, It is the future Under Rule 26 of SMISA' constitution, I will be proposing a members resolution for the pot to be saved for when SMISA has bought GLS out and have become the majority shareholder. It will be submitted in time for the AGM in 2019. Lets roll the dice and let the paying members decide if this is an option that is worth having on each and every future £2 pot spend voted.

    on 11/20/2018 at 08:09AM, Bazil51 said (albeit on the accounts thread in General Discussion but the points are pertinent.) Couldn't have put it better myself. Perfect illustration and justification for including a 'Save the pot' option on every future quarterly spend vote. Nothing to fear and the voting members can decide to spend or save. Democracy is indeed, a beautiful thing.

    Me and you have become St Mirren version of the chuckle brothers with our version of to me, to you on this. Oh yes there is/oh no there's not..... I think it has potential and only by putting it on each and every vote will the intelligence be gathered to demonstrate there is an appetite or not. Going back to my turning tides analogy, if the tide isn't turning. the Spend It Now folks (the SINners) have nothing to fear from its inclusion. to you..... [emoji23]

    I don't think SMISA has an appetite to put it as an option as it "was intended to be spent" previous votes are suggestive the members will back club related options at just about every turn. That said, there is nothing to fear by putting a save option on every vote. As you say, democracy wins. If there is no appetite for it, it won't get the votes. Having the option will shut me up completely about it. I hope SMISA share your confidence and vote to put the option on. If grass seed for the Simply Dig arena comes up as an option or something just as ludicrous and wins a quarterly spend vote, if "save" has also been an option, there'll be no bumping of gums from me.

    Oh dear, Me and you have managed to debate and disagree quite successfully without the need for bullshit. "almost LPM level infact" 🤣🤣 is probably the weakest insult these pages have ever seen. Outlandish as it may seem to you. As explained a couple of times now, The option to "Save the pot until the buds is bought" has never been put to the members. Save it and add to a future pot has. This is quite a differesnt question (imho). For that purpose, there is no data. There is data that members have preferred the option of spending now on club related things rather than saving it to be spent as part of a bigger pot at a later date (& not after btb is complete) That may give you confidence of the members not having an appetite to save the pot but i'll make an outlandish claim on epic LPM proportions to say, i don't agree with you on that. Hopefully we will get to find out if there is your appetite or not. Another revolution of the wheel and we are still in the same place [emoji23] .

    No, there is not. The question posed previously was to save the money and add it to a future pot. That is quite a different question to "Save the money until The Buds is bought.
