You know it is quite interesting reading. One can well understand why the Warriors, Bulldogs and Titans are down so much and the bottom four listed on the gains have so much positivity going for them.
I was in the Knights shop yesterday picking up member packs and the board in there read 12377

Accepting Knights membership is largely built around roll overs from season to season, it will be interesting to see if we can get some early wins and momentum (starting with the Sea Eagles in round 1) how much of a spike might be generated by a bit of early success.
I have only just thought about it but the other thing I've just realised is that, to this point, I haven't seen anything radically different in pre-season promotion and marketing since the Wests Group has taken over...maybe the community training sessions are a bit more of an innovation than I recall before but I wonder if they have had chance to really focus on a membership drive for 2018?
There's certainly not much news on the Knights down here in Canberra either.
Or on the Raiders for that matter now that I think about it.
It's still probably a little early to start the membership drive. 2 or 3 weeks out I'm sure you will see a huge media membership blitz
I wonder if Wests members will get some sort of offer or discount for season tickets linked to Wests memberships?
I'm a perpetual member and there is nothing I've received to date Billy...and you'd expect it would be available for season ticket holder renewals if they do put something out
Sorry Wobbles there is never any news about nothin' in Canberra except pollies.
Last Christmas the Nativity Scenes were all cancelled. They could not find any virgins and as for three wise men? Nuh. Plenty of donkeys and sheep for the manger though!
I agree with all of the above with the exception of the virgins. Needless to say there were less at the end of the year than at the beginning
They think a 20,000 membership cap would be suitable, with 5k for away members and casual attendees and the other 5k out to juniors.
Wouldn't it be great to be getting 25k+ to games again.
I had always assumed there was already a waiting list to secure reserved seating until a few years back!
Get your memberships now and hold on to them.
Maybe they should have built a bigger stadium

Just signed up to the 6-game membership for my wife, three littlies and myself
I was thinking about this earlier, but does a 6 game membership count as 1 additional member? Or does it count as 0.5 in the member count?
Reasoning is if they are going to set a member cap in future at 20k, many of those members won't be 100% game members, some may be QLD members etc. The 20k cap was set due to the seating limit in the stadium so that doesn't really relate to having 20k members though if every membership is counted as a full membership!
Good point but if there is a waiting list like they anticipate once the members 6 game membiership expires there would be someone else ready to jump into the remainder of the year, and then they should be given first choice to renew as a full 12 game member if they choose, and knowing how sort after the seats are they likely will. Down the track if all goes to plan you will only have full ticketed members and no 3 or 6 game packages
