I hope that you have enjoyed your summer break and are looking forward to the return to training at Whitecraigs. We have our Registration Day on Sunday 27th August 2017, starting at the earlier time of 11.00hrs to accommodate those who need to register – the cost is £10.00 a month by standing order, or a lump sum £120.00. We’ll finish at the usual time of 12.30hrs. Remember, juice, rain jackets, boots and trainers to be prepared for the Scottish Summer! If you’re already registered and pay by standing order, all you need to do is to turn up and take part.
Things will be a bit awkward to start with at West Lodge as you’ll see the works to Pitch 3 is putting pressure on the space available for training. Pitch 3 should be back in action by October this year, however, for the time being we’ll have to put up with the inconvenience. We may have to bring training forward by half an hour to help with the use of the pitches until 3 becomes available for the other age groups again.
As ever, I’m going to appeal for volunteers as we’re a Club that is run by volunteers. There’s no major commitment, just give what time you have. I’m going to appeal specifically to the Mums out there to come and help so that we can send a positive message about female inclusion in the Game. We’ve already started the “Pink Panthers” female rugby touch rugby team (19.30hrs training on a Wednesday evening), so hopefully this participation will cascade throughout the age groups and Whitecraigs can field a full compliment of Women’s rugby.
I will ask our kit provider, PSL Sports to come along on the day so that new kit can be bought. Remember too that we do a kit exchange for those who have outgrown their old kit – and it raises funds for the Club.
I look forward to seeing you all on the 27th August 2017, 11.00hrs. All welcome!
Yours in rugby,
President and Micros Coach.
