OWING TO THE LARGE TURNOUT LAST SATURDAY WE ARE CONTINUING OUR BREAKFAST WITH THE LIONS THIS COMING SATURDAY 1ST JULY AND THE 8TH JULY. COME ALONG AND SUPPORT THE LIONS.
Good Morning from a pretty miserable West Lodge,
Well that is the Beer Festival over for another year and were we not lucky with the weather!
Thanks to the main man Percy for his massive feat of organisation and to all those who assisted him before, during and after the event. Every year the Festival grows and it is obvious that if we wish to maximise our revenue, we have to have more volunteers to assist on the actual day. The jobs are not heavy lifting but more the selling of the tokens, manning the door and staffing of our own Club stalls. These stalls are where we make our real money and it is imperative that these are run properly to maximise our opportunities. So as usual, I will making pleas for assistance nearer next year’s event and hopefully the members will respond in a very positive fashion.
Tomorrow is the First Lions Test and the Club is open from 8.00am for breakfast and refreshments. This is open to all members including children so please come along and enjoy what is sure to be an absorbing contest.
Tonight there is a Pitch 3 Fundraiser which Mike Palmer is organising and all are welcome.
Today’s newsletter sponsor is GAP Group who provided all the fencing, generators, toilets and other hardware for the Beer Festival. Thanks to Neil Dunning for the organisation and GAP Group for their support of the Club.
The Club AGM took place on Monday night and there is no change in the executive positions – President Jon Jewitt, Vice President Craig Percival, Hon Treasurer Douglas Emery and Hon Secretary Graeme Scott. Thanks to the members who turned out to make it a larger than normal audience. Normally the AGM could be held in telephone box.
The 100 Club is still on the go and we are always looking for new participants. It is £10 per month and the prizes are currently £200 , £100 and £50 per month. The more people involved the bigger the prizes. Contact me for further details.
The newsletter will be issued over the next couple of months but on an irregular basis because of club activities and holidays. The Club is open during July and August and it needs your support. If you are off on holiday, enjoy the break and we look forward to seeing back at West Lodge.
Good Evening from a sunny and warm West Lodge,
I am sending out a mid week newsletter as we have some important events coming up over the next two weeks.
Firstly of course is the Beer Festival with fun for all the family, this coming Saturday the 17th June.This year we have moved everything from the Clubhouse down to Pitch 1 with marqees in case it rains. Beer, ciders, prosecco, wine, BBQ, other food outlets, live music and entertainment for the Kids. Tickets are priced at £8 and kids go free and are avilable at the door on the day. Support the Club on this great Fun day.
The Club AGM takes place on Monday 19th June at 7.00pm. We have decided to postpone the EGM to amend the Constitution until a date later in August/early September. The amendments were to bring the Constitution into line with modern practice regarding accessibility, gender, race etc but we did not give the statutory one months notice of the EGM plus did not publicise the admendments in the correct manner. These amendments are required by outside funding sources and will have to be included in our Constitution in order to have access to these free funds. So come along to the AGM and take part in the future of your Club.
On the 23rd June, Mike Palmer reports that:
U13 & U14 pitch 3 fundraiser is on Fri 23rd June 6.30 til late.We are having a family “Pull-along Race Night”.£5 entry on the door which includes a burger from the BBQ.Great fun for all ages.
Michael Gillman, our International Ticket Convenor, has in his possession the applications for tickets for the Autumn and Six Nations Home Internationals. If you are not already on his mailing list and are interested in tickets please contact me and I will pass your details on to Michael.
The First Lions Test is on 24th June and Percy has organised : Despite the mixed results of the tour so far, we will all enter the 1st test (SATURDAY 24th JUNE) of the Lions series with a degree of optimism. We will be open to show the game with both the bar and kitchen open from 8am ready to offer you some cold refreshments and some breakfast options. We will continue to do this for the second and third tests, but only if enough folk turn up to make it worthwhile. Please support your club by getting up to support the Lions and enjoying a pint and a bacon roll!
Fingers Crossed for a sunny Beer Festival.

Whitecraigs Rugby Club
Just a reminder that the Club AGM will take place on 19th June at 7.00pm in the Lounge. The EGM is to tidy up the Constitution in order that it meets current requirements that are needed to qualify for funding from outside bodies.
I know that it is just after the Beer Festival but it is an important event on the Club calendar.
Please try and make it.
Good Morning from a sunny and warm West Lodge,
No rugby action to report but there is still training taking place for the various sections taking place, please contact your relevant coach for details. The Club Fun Day was hugely successful with great numbers partcipating.
The Mini section had their Fund raiser for the Pitch 3 works and raised £725. This makes the total raised so far to £3350. There are more section events over the next few weeks so keep up the pressure to raise the cash for the floodlights and pitch improvements.
As you may have seen over the past week, a number of senior players have been tirelessly working around the club and completing many odd-jobs that have been waiting years. Having filled a skip load of rubbish as well as filling over a dozens bin bags of litter, there should certainly be a lot more space in the club. A much needed coat of paint has been put on our beer garden fence and benches so why not enjoy a pint in the sun in the fresh new benches. Many thanks go out to all the players who helped. Please help us maintain this standard of cleanliness around the club. Also remember, we always need joiners, electricians and plumbers so if you have any trades or could volunteer for any odd-jobs around the club, please let Percy or Graeme know.
This week’s sponsor is Orr Fire Protection who sponsor the squash section. We run three male and one female team. We also compete in the National Squash league and are the only non racquet ball sports Club to do so in Scotland.
The next big Event is the much anticipated Beer Festival on the 17th June. Early bird tickets are available from behind the bar at £5 instead of £8.
The Club AGM is on Monday 19th June at 7pm.
Enjoy the sunshine today as unfortunately it is not due to last the weekend.
