Please sign-up or renew your True Blue International membership before July 31st so that you have the bonus points that can make the difference when applying for tickets.
Even if you are not planning trip to a game, I highly recommend the True Blue £35 "Tier 4" package including Chelsea TV video on demand as excellent value.
When signing-up don't forget to mention you are with the Vancouver Branch.
Also, please renew or sign up for the $20 local, social membership using PayPal at our Online Shop (click on Items, then Shopping cart) or send your cheque, made out to Chelsea Supporters' Club Vancouver, to my address.

José's coming home party
Unfortunately, due to work and family commitments it has not been possible to arrange a club party night. So instead we will have a pre-season or early season José's coming home party sometime in late August. We will do the draw for the trip to London prize at the party.
