In our club everyone pays!
Officers with 50+ service still pay to come into the game, buy their beer and pay the membership.
I do the bar and cook the food on a Saturday but still pay to watch the game.
Injured players, those with no game also pay to watch the game!
The theory being...if I do the gate and I have paid so will you, don't care if your son is playing...you pay!
League officers, county officials and referee's, whether they have their free pass or not will not get in without a go at the 50/50 either.
I love it....lol
