      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.

There's a few of us flying out to there and then travelling to Vilnius

We're staying in the Memel Hotel, which has fairly decent reviews and is well placed etc - also decided to do a wee trip to Nida on the Curonian Spit.

The trains are around €12 one way but can't buy online as you need a Lithuanian bank account - from what I've read, you can buy on the day if needed

Looks fairly decent and with the direct train, makes it easy to get to, with the hotel sorting out a taxi from the airport for us (€30) but I suppose since you're going the other way and control the time you leave, the airport coach would be good for you?

Just reading on an FB page about a plane bound for Palanga almost being diverted due to Scottish laddies being bawbags. This true?

We quite liked it and whilst not exactly rocking at night, some decent places to eat and get a few drinks etc

We were the 'other' group there, we spoke as you were waiting for your pal to fly in :ok:

Spent the day at palanga on the beach, visited nida and managed a few late nights so fitted my requirements

As you say a tad quiet at night but it's not like you'd of thirst, still pubs open till 0200 which was probably late enough

Beer was honking tho :(

It's not a new thing on football trips. Always a few arseholes that can't handle the drink or know when to stop
