Minions!

Postby Foresttownstag » Tue Apr 15, 2014 4:29 pm

Has won the vote for Fancy dress theme for our last game of the season vs Bristol Rovers!

Hopefully others who voted for different ideas will come together with the majority & travel down as a minion as it could look brilliant. JR of London Stags will be advertising this further through social media & local radio stations.

Below I have listed some links to outfits I have found!

Paul said he has got some minion masks available
Would finish the look off or could do yellow face paint?

Most of the outfits have hoods which would be enough tbh. Even an advert in the programme or an announcement at the next home game would be good.

I am getting a megabus service from London Victoria at 9am, arriving at Colston Hall (not too far from Temple Meads) at 11:30

Coming home I am getting the megabus service from Colston Hall at 1800, arriving back in Landan at 2045

Why megabus I hear you ask? £16rtn - Much cheaper than the train

Would you care to meet up in Bristol?

For info ladies and gents;

Twitter
I hit twitter last night tweeting the Stags players and club officials I follow asking them to RT my post to promote and support what we are doing - Some of them have already done so and I am sure others will follow

Facebook
I have pushed this via face-book via the MTFC pages and my own that I am aware of

Mansfield Town FC
I spoke to Paul Nyland yesterday. He will gauge opinion with the SSA to see how many minion masks to get in for the club to sell as he won't want to have loads of minion masks left over - Understandable

Martin Shaw/Stagsplayer
Martin has kindly agreed to promote and support this over the airwaves when he is on stagsplayer

Radio
I have spoken to Jason Harrison who will;

- Plug the plan of action n the sports bulletins
- Mention it to Paul Cox et al during interviews with him for the radio
- I may well be on the radio again with more advertising/promoting most likely on Stags FM pre-Torquay match

The Chad
The Chad are only interested in doing something post event rather than promoting it - Of course, without helping to promote it they may have a disappointing article....

Any other suggestions ladies and gentlemen?
