Open top bus celebration

edited April 2012 in General Charlton
Does anyone know if we will be doing this or anything about it? Imagine we would be anyway. Probably a week or so after the season.

    Been discussed already. Not gonna happen, we've won (hopefully) the 3rd division. Relief and an enjoyable achievement worthy of celebration, but still, nonetheless, our 3rd worst finish in the last 30 odd years. So hardly our finest hour.

    Won't happen, it would be a nightmare as many fans wouldn't bother coming to it and the local area around Woolwich etc. is all Arsenal, so imo there would just be a bunch of empty streets.

    It works in places like Reading as they are the only team for miles around and therefore they are supported by pretty much everyone in the area, we have too many rivals nearby, there would be too many complaints from locals that couldn't care less about football, and I don't think they'll let us close the roads. The Olympics and the London Marathon are already going to be screwing up the local traffic enough as it is.

    Personally I would love it to happen but I am on going on holiday the day after the Hartlepool match so I will miss it anyway!

    Did we do this for the winning of the play offs?

    Will happen when we have just beaten Barcalona in the Champions League Final but that's still three years away.

    A round of fish paste sandwiches and two bowls of Angel Delight.
    I do agree with PaulSturgess though.

    Just as an added bit to this, both Norwich and Brighton had open top bus parades when they won League 1 in the past two years.

    One club towns with a natural town centre/focal point.

    Where would we end up, Woolwich? I don't fancy getting mugged thanks!

    Don't know about an open-top bus but Slater has volunteered to foot the bill for a quick ride on the 486 and has promised that the lads can all sit on the top deck as long as they don't stand up when it's moving and promise not to smoke.

    Travel from the Valley, around the Greenwich one way and end with a presentation on the balcony of the Queen's House :)

    We did have a celebration after the play offs - but I think it sounds like Saturday is going to be celebration enough. Then from the next day, we should focus on One Aim part 2.

    Always found it a little bit strange that we had this for the play-off promotion but not for the champions promotion 2 yrs later. Evidently, scraping through is more of an achievement................................;-)

    I gave Norwich fans stick for doing it as like us they shouldn't be in the 3rd Division in the first place. We can have one next year when we get promoted.

    i really dont get all this "only 3 rd division" - you can only win the league you are in and we have done that in some style. Really wierd even calling it our 3rd worse in 30 years. To me it's about enjoyment and there havent been many more enjoyable in the last 30 years!
