Good Afternoon from a dreich West Lodge,
The never ending feeling of Groundhog Day continues apace. However, there is a glimmer of light on the horizon as it was announced today that we are having an announcement about the roadmap for the future on Thursday but with no dates to be mentioned.
I hope that everyone is staying safe and keeping to the new code of conduct that is required to keep the R number well below 1. Many thanks to the members of Whitecraigs who are working on the frontline services that have been under extreme pressure over the last two months.
The Club is here to help in any way it can during lockdown- whether you need shopping collected whilst you isolate or just a friendly chat to keep you going – just message firstname.lastname@example.org
The Senior Awards Dinner was held virtually, which saved the Club from the annual carnage but denied the bar a hefty take. The winners of the various awards were as follows:
Player of the Year – Jack Ramage
Player’s Player – Michael Christine
Most Improved Player – Daniel McPhail
In the under 18 category winners were:
Player of the Year – Greg Innes and Struan Beaton
Player’s Player – Luke Barber
Most Improved Player – Lucas Parry and Scott Fosbury
Congratulations to all the winners.
The Car Wash is open for business with social distancing in place. The Clothes Bank in the car park is ready to be filled with all the clothes that you have cleared out over the last few weeks.
If you can, please support our sponsors during this difficult time. They support us and we can support them.
The Clubhouse is closed at present but there has been use of the grounds for exercise and dog walking. My biggest annoyance is the casual disposal of dog waste bags around the Club. Please take this home with you as someone has to clear it up (generally me). Also, please do not congregate in the beer garden area as I noticed a number of empty beer/wine bottles in the bin. This area is now exposed to the road and it does not give a good impression of the Club.
The Club continues to operate as best we can at the moment with virtual committee meetings, challenges, quizzes and award nights. When we return to rugby is unknown and not in our control but I would expect that grassroots contact team sports will be well down the priority list.
We would like to thank all members who are continuing to pay their subscriptions by standing order as this income is essential for the financial well being of the Club. There are still bills to be paid, pitches to be maintained and this income is vital to ensure that when we reopen, we do so in the best possible position.
As ever thanks for your continued support and stay safe and be sensible.
