As previously mentioned, this Sunday Society volunteers will be handing out the Junior Dees Gift Packs on behalf of the club, to those unable to attend the Christmas party. Junior Dees can collect their packs on production of voucher 'NN' from season ticket books, or by showing Junior Dees certificates.
Packs will be available for collection in the Bobby Cox Stand, and South Enclosure, or for Junior Dees in the main stand, packs will be available in the club shopAdmin Junior Dees Gift Packs Jan 20, 2013
This morning, a group of DFCSS volunteers met at Dens to put the finishing touches to the Junior Dees Packs for those who could not attend the Christmas party. Joining Society Directors Jacqui Robertson and Grant Cook were Wendy Hovell and Carlyn Connor, and after a three hour session putting everything together, packs will be available to collect at the next home game, versus Kilmarnock on Jan 27th. Packs will be available for collection in both the South Enclosure and Bobby Cox stands.
Any Junior Dee who has yet to receive a pack can do so at the game from Society volunteers on presentation of season ticket books, or, for non season ticket holders, a Junior Dees membership card. Any member who has yet to receive a member’s card should contact Dundee FC here to request one. While we would hope to see all Junior Dees at the game, packs will also be kept for those unable to attend, and can be collected at a later date.Admin Junior Dees Party Pics Dec 19, 2012

With photographs of Junior Dees meeting deewok, the players, manager and Santa, there is sure to be one for everyone.Admin Junior Dees Christmas Party Dec 18, 2012
Sunday 16th December was the date for the social event of the year. Forget the Oscars, forget the BRITS, and forget the Royal Wedding..... This was the Junior Dees Christmas Party!
As the guests began to arrive, a special guest put in an appearance, it was only Deewok! With many of his biggest fans in attendance, Deewok was soon inundated with requests for photographs, and as we all know, Deewok is not one to let his fans down. Soon a line had formed, and Jacqui Robertson was clicking away, as the Junior Dees took advantage of this rare photo opportunity with a true superstar.
As the room filled up, over 100 JD’s with parents in attendance were then treated to the arrival of four more heroes, as Martin Boyle Leighton McIntosh, Lewis Toshney and Graham Webster turned up, allowing Deewok to sneak off for a minute, muttering something about making a phone call. Who was he phoning?’ A secret’ is all we were told, but we would find out later.
With the party games in full swing, yet another guest arrived, Mr DFC, Barry Smith, who made sure that photographs were now taking place everywhere, Deewok was back, the players were there, and now the Manager had turned up, this really was a party. With pass the parcel going on, players, manager and mascot being photographed, and juice and crisps, courtesy of Bookers cash and carry, the JDs were having a whale of a time.
Deewok was now getting very excited, he obviously knew something nobody else did, and it was time to reveal his secret, he had pulled out all the stops, cashed in all his favours, and Santa was here!
Santa had arrived with gift bags for all the children who had been good this year, but explained that he did not even have to look at his list, if they were Junior Dees, that was good enough for him. Santa spent around half an hour handing out goodie bags to all the guests, during his busy period, showing everyone that he obviously has a soft spot for The Dee, and everything Dark Blue related, he was even sporting a Dark Blue version of his hat.
Dundee FC are delighted that the party went so well, and would like to thank all the DFCSS members who turned up to help out, Jacqui Robertson was happy to help, and her enthusiasm for the party may have spilled over a little bit, ‘It was difficult not to join in the dancing and party games but it was just too busy, although I couldn't help myself when I saw all the kids on the dance floor doing the gangnam style dance, a sight that will stay with me forever. The queue for a photo with Santa was held up slightly by one very cute little boy who was telling Santa what he wanted for Christmas. Thanks so much to the players and manager who were fantastic with the kids. Everyone looked as if they were having a ball and that's what it was all about. Thanks to everyone who joined us and we hope that the junior dees enjoyed their party.'
With everyone partied out, it was time for this fantastic event to wind down, with the guests leaving happy, if a little tired. This was a great JD’s Christmas Party, and thanks must go to those who organised and gave up time to make sure it was such a success. Step forward Maurice Kidd, Jacqui Robertson, Carlyn Connor, Wendy Hovell, Nicola Ironside, Billy Shepherd and Grant Cook for organising and attending. Thanks also must go to Billy Taylor, who DJ’d the event, and Wave 102 for finding him, Alan Provan of Provan Sports along with Bookers and Batley’s Cash and Carrys, who kindly donated the drinks and snacks, Jim Fyffe, who allowed us to use the hall, with no charge, and the lovely May, who let us in, and helped us set up. Thanks also to the one and only Deewok for giving up his Sunday, and of course Santa, for taking time out in his busiest month, and lets not forget the players and manager,who all happily signed autographs and posed for pictures for everyone.
