Parade Float Arrangements - 25th May 2019

The tractor and trailer for the Parade will arrive at the club at around 9:45 am on Saturday morning ready to be decorated.

Can all willing volunteers please assemble there at 9:45 am ready to perform the usual balloon-based magic. The more bodies that turn up, the easier it all is and the quicker we'll be done.

Once the trailer is sorted, we'll head to the back of Beatsons' ready to roll. Those who are going to ride on or walk alongside the trailer (and we'd like to see Senior players, Midis, Hunters and parents alike) should be at the link road for 12:30 pm, with painted faces and playing strips. There will be club strips available for those that don't have their own.

NOTE: As was the case last year, there are to be NO water pistols or any other such devices brought along. Instead, please bring along whistles and similar items to make some serious noise and to liven up the afternoon.

Finally, a big thanks as ever to the Gladstone family for the loan of the tractor and trailer and to our driver for the day, Bev.

Looking forward to another fun day.

Hunters at Murrayfield - 26th May 2019

In all the excitement of the Hunter and Lass Parade details, please don't forget that the Hunters (P4-7) are at Murrayfield for their Tournament on Sunday.

All players need to be at Roseburn Park for 11:30 am. If you are not able to make this tournament, please make sure that you let your child's coaches know.

Congratulations to John and Jack

Congratulations to John S and Jack R.

Both have been selected as part of the wider Edinburgh U18 training squad for this summer's Regional Age Grade Programme. The programme kicks off next week with regular training sessions, culminating with games against the Borders, Caledonia and Glasgow in late July/early August. We'll post up details of the kick off times and locations of the games closer to the time.

We wish John and Jack (and their team-mates) all the best.

Hunter and Lass Parade - 25th May 2019

Saturday 25th May is Hunter and Lass/Penicuik on Parade day and we'll be taking part with our usual float.

Please put the date in your diaries and watch out for further announcements which will detail the arrangements for dressing the float and for when and where to turn up for the parade itself.

Incidentally, we'll need lots of help from club members in running the club on the day so if you are formally bar trained and can help out for a shift (or even if you are just available to collect glasses for an hour or so) then please let us know.

Hunter and Lass week

It's Hunter and Lass week, so we've got a few changes from the normal weekly activities.

On Wednesday evening, it's the Hunter and Lass Pram Race which finishes at the clubhouse. The Shows are also in the Public Park. Experience has taught us that there is little point in trying to run Hunters training sessions and there won't be room for Tartan Touch so both of those are CANCELLED this week. Please do come down to enjoy the Pram Race though.

On Saturday, it's Penicuik on Parade. We're hoping to have our usual tractor and trailer entry in the parade, so we'll need help with decorating the trailer at the club in the morning. The parade will form up on the back road between Beatsons and Screwfix/Howdens at around 12:00 pm. We need as many players (of all ages) in attendance as possible please, with playing strips, face paints and whistles. Please note, we are NOT allowed water pistols or any other such frippery at all this year. The parade will finish at around 2:15 pm/2:30 pm and prizes for floats will be presented in the park at 3:00 pm. The club will be open through the afternoon for club members. We'll have the Pro14 Final on the television too.

(And on Sunday morning, the Hunters (P1-7) are in action at Murrayfield Wanderers Tournament, so look out for other announcements with the details for that)

Open to everyone, it requires no previous experience of rugby at all. All you need is a willingness to give it a go. Kids, adults, grandparents - everyone is welcome to join in and have fun. Just head down to the Public Park (opposite the High School) on a Wednesday evening to join in. We start at 7:30 pm.

Fun Awards Day - 15th June 2019

This year's keenly-anticipated Fun Awards Day will be on Saturday 15th June. Please put the date in your diaries and start to think about your award nominations.

We'll be starting at 4:00 pm - slightly later than in previous years - but we'll have all the usual fun and games and then we'll hopefully roll on into a barbeque and an evening event. As ever, watch out for announcements with more details as we get closer to the date.

If you have awards nominations that you'd like to send in (serious or not-so-serious), then please email them (in strict confidence) to awards@penicuikrugby.org.
