it depends on who gets the money from the Bar but I think Ulster Rugby sell the rights to run the food and drink to the highest bidder .

with the hours of sale specified .

It provides a guaranteed income without the hassle of staffing insurance etc .

with defined hours of sale those running the bar have a defined max turnover since they know exactly how many pints they would expect to sell per hour in each bar and this will not be increased by the provision of entertainment .
( The bars are possibly already selling close to the expected max )
The limitation of selling hours is due to the location and difficulties providing security ( for drunks control )
Of course those wanting " better bar facilities ( more drinking time )can guarantee everybody will behave themselves and are willing to compensate UR if they don't .
As my old Da once said when the opening hours where 10 - 10
" if you can't get drunk in the hours provided your not trying "

Tell me Ron'n, for I know we have sold off the bar receipts, but when typing that did it ever occur to you that if they can make the offering more attractive to the bidders that they will get higher bids?


Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm???????????? Just wondering, did it occur to you that might work favourably for Ulster & their "drink partner".

Rooster, as you know well, given I stand there with you more often than not, I know we have that entertainment.

I'm not decrying it, but that came after the summer ST holders meeting I referred to, though I can't remember if it came during that season or did we need to ruminate on it a bit longer.

Clubs like Tigers & Quins may offer their superior entertainment at every game, I've no idea, I just think that for one or two, maybe all three of the SDC games & possibly any afternoon ko in InterPro games something a touch better might be done, but we seem to lack even the slightest idea of how to stage something over and above the dead basic offering.

I know in this vile little statelet any change takes several decades to bed in, maybe someday when Fit & I are dead people will get something more than just the same old dreary shyte on offer, and that's just the rugby. :roll:

Even Sorries have post match band and bar open for a few hours

Quins bar was only open 2 hours after the game but it allows public transport to ease and a warm place for a sup

I tell ya what might boost bar profits a little. Have a few more people pulling pints.
A serious suggestion though, What about a bar card that you can pre load cash onto like golf clubs or school have. It would help cut queing time and get more punters through the bars quicker.

Bar is sold to Mount Charles so up to them if they don't have enough staff Ulster still get their share no matter how many or few pints are sold.

Perhaps one might purchase a club "champagne" flute for the Fizz Bar?

Schools use fingerprints instead of cards now.

Anyone think this would be a good idea at Ravenhill? Would surely cut down on the waste clean up post game? Anyone have any strong negative views on the issue?

Used it in France, but it tends to encourage you to only order 1 pint at a time. Prob a good thing on a French trip. Not great for any sort of serious session at the hill.

So do Stortford in National League 1.

But more people pulling pints is usually a better idea.
