      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

  1. As an aside you are only entitled to compensation if your flight is cancelled in the next 2 weeks - after that its refund or rebook afaik
  2. mm first off they cancelled your flight - so as a minimum they owe you 250 euro per person secondly on the eu compensation form I filled out ( attached it when I submitted to Aer Lingus) there is a separate section on additional expenditure - I didn't have to use it as we got on the next flight but I would imagine its for additional costs https://ec.europa.eu/transport/sites/transport/files/themes/passengers/air/doc/complain_form/eu_complaint_form_en.pdf This will certainly cost ryanair big time and can expect a mea culpa from them but TBF in my experience if it is their fault they pay up pretty quick - within 2 weeks of submitting form Your travel insurance not paying out is likely because they are expecting the airline to compensate
  3. Speaking to the YBIG guys 300 stg a month would be par for the course
  4. I am over it ............the therapy helped
  5. I am ignoring you as you didn't respond to my canoeing post
  6. what am I supposed to do during work hours ? work ?
  7. only seeing this now ! As an Ireland fan I first joined as you had an uncanny knack of going where we/I were just about to go to eg Tbilisi ( though never made it as Russia invaded and we ended up in Mainz) Bari, Stockholm though the last not exactly off the beaten track Whatsapp has problably been a factor as well , hopefully something will remain - spent far too many hours on here when YBIG was quite it would be a shame if there wasn't a MB for Scotland fans
  8. but there are away trips to think about/planning Sept Oct Nov 18 - clearly being at the wc finals will have an effect as the euros and 3 aways was in 2016 financially and holiday wise challenging - still it would be a nice problem to have
  9. strange they haven't confirmed a date for the draw, given who and how many will attend though fixtures are decided by computer these days
  10. surely the matches are next Sept Oct Nov qualifiers start Sept 18, I would of thought Nov 17 for the draw but a. cant find anywhere the date of the draw anywhere b. it might be a bit close to the wc finals draw having said that I distinctly remember we knew we had 3 aways in set oct nov after the euros on 2016
  11. anybody know when the next euro draw is
  12. Molly Malones - good irish pub ran by a half dutch YBIG away regular https://mollyinamsterdam.com/
  13. was canoeing down one of St Croix tributaries near Danbury Wisconsin a fortnight ago. Drove up the night before and camped by the river . drove up river in the next day and paddled down all day to camp, cooler beer fishing etc . Weather on the Saturday was goergeous but the mosquitos were out at night and mine and the mrs legs were destroyed despite trousers and bug spray. Fishing was crap, never got a bite on the sat but caught a bass on the fri night by the campsite. Great time though the whipperwill Sp ? bird I could of throttled and it was a bit sad hearing the dogs in the background going bear hunting Heavens opened the next day so shelved the idea of another day on the river and packed up and headed south
  14. think they imported a whole load of german coaches 20 + years ago.
  15. don't know if its still on iplayer ( was a few weeks ago ) but Wild Ireland - Edge of the world was a stunning nature documentary about the west coast though I don't quite remember that many sunny days - some of the beaches were Bermuda like ( albeit slightly cooler) Monty Halls Irish adventure still on covers Connemara etc Bord Failte probably went out and spent their UK budget in the pub the next day as they couldn't better it Wild Altlantic way has been heavily promoted , take a walk along salthill promenade and kick the wall at the end Go for a pint in Naugthons (Spelling ?) on the main street - none of that stag/hen bollicks allowed Kinvara - looked a nice wee quite spot for a stroll, also the sky road heading north from Galway
