Thanks, Boycie.

It has the makings of a good night - as with any such event, it needs a good, healthy audience to carry it and make it entertaining - it a fans' event (albeit to benefit the two charities) - so please, folks - help us by getting your tickets!

It's only a fiver - a fraction of the price of many forums held nowadays.

We'd sooner sell plenty of tickets in advance though will sell at the door on the night if some remain.

Another note: 14th November, a day before the event, is World Diabetes Day; it is the day on which (in 1922) insulin was discovered, which regulates the body's sugar balance and of course has to be administered by diabetics to control the disease.

I'm not diabetic but have lost friends and family to the condition (as with a stroke) - so we hope to provide a good football night out and support the nominated charities generously.

Thanks all.

YES I'm shouting - sorry, but this can be a forum and a half if we get a good audience!

* No Rams' midweek match - no excuse not to come!

*Gibbo's initial post-Radio Derby appearance

* Event to benefit Diabetes UK & The Stroke Association

* Only £5.00 ticket entry cost (block booking discount available) - the more tickets we sell in advance, the better raffle / draw prizes we can buy for you to have a chance of winning (prizes already includes a new signed football, arranged for us by N Clough, signed books, etc)

PLEASE come and have a good Rams' night out on 15th November - support the forum, and make it happen!

Tickets will be on sale in the DW Soccerdome foyer between 12.00 midday and 2.30 pm on Saturday, beflre the home game with Blackpool FC.

Thanks all!
