Along with the first bit of snowfall today comes lots of news - so be sure to read all the way through!
- Save the date for the evening of December 23rd! Can you think of a better way to start your holiday weekend than spending the evening with your rugby family raising money for the vision fund? Budd Bay's quest for our own field is about to get a big push forward, and we'll be kicking it off at our Holiday Party. Stay tuned for further details - but book the event on your calendar!
- Barbarian practices begin at 6pm on December 6th at Skyhawks Park. Practices will be Tuesday and Thursday. Please remember that we have a new registration process that is now open online.
- The Steelheads will have a "Recruiting/Intro to Rugby Session" on December 13th, 6pm, at Skyhawks Park. Regular practices will then begin on January 3rd, Tuesday and Thursday, 6-8pm, again at Skyhawks Park. Please remember that we have a new registration process that is now open online.
- The Buffaloes will be resuming their regular season play on January 17th, also at Skyhawks Park from 6-8pm. For those of you that haven't finished paying for the fall portion of your dues, please do so so that you are eligible to play again in the Spring! You can log in and pay your dues here.
In other news, the club still does not have a Treasurer. Please, if you have any ability to help out, we are in desperate need! We cannot go into our Spring season with 'Business as Usual' without having a financial accounting of our situation. Things like field costs, travel costs, equipment costs, dues, fundraising and donations all need to be tracked and accounted for, and without a treasurer, we can't do so. Not only does this leave us in a poor situation come tax season, it also means that we can't continue making purchases for players if we don't know how much money we have!
Finally, often around this time of year we put together a gear order. So far, I've not received any requests for gear. Any particular items that people would like us to consider? In the past we've done team T-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, bags, blankets, umbrellas, etc. Keep in mind that we typically need to do a bulk order to be able to get a decent rate, but if enough people want a certain item, we'll put an order together!
That's all for now, enjoy the lovely rugby weather!
