Games and Training this weekend - 21st April 2018

A very busy weekend ahead of us this week.

On Saturday morning, the S1 squad head to Barnton (EH4 6JP) to take part in the RHC S1 Sevens Tournament. The games start at 10:00 am and the team is leaving the Penicuik Centre at 8:45 am in order to get there in pleanty of time.

On Saturday afternoon, the First XV (sponsored by McKenzie Skip Hire) are at home, where they face Inverleith in their last league game of the season. Kick off is at 3:00 pm.

Then, on Sunday morning, the Hunters (P1-P7) are at RHC - again at Barnton - for the RHC Minis Festival. Games start there at 11:00 am, so payers need to be at Barnton for 10:30 am at the latest. Previous experience suggests that the earlier you get there, the easier it is to find a parking space.

Please also note that Saturday evening sees the club conclude its Charity Auction in aid of the Eileen McCallum Trust and the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. The Auction starts at 7:30 pm sharp, and all members of all ages are very welcome. We need a good turnout to ensure that we get the best possible prices for the items we have on sale so please make an extra special effort to be there. Once the Auction is complete, we roll straight into Karaoke with Mark Burwell so come and let your hair down and show us your best singing voices.

As ever, we look forward to seeing you all at some point over the weekend.

MND and DMD Fundraiser - 21st April 2018

The club (lead by Gillian Chapman) intends to organise a Charity Auction on Saturday 21st of April in aid of the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation (https://www.myname5doddie.co.uk) and the Eileen McCallum Trust (http://eileenmccallumtrust.org).

Soon, we will be looking for club members to offer auction items for sale (services, gifts, anything - more later) but for now we need help in contacting local and national businesses to see if they will help out. We're looking for three or four people to coordinate that operation.

These are two very worthy charities with links and direct relevance to people in our dual Rugby and Penicuik communities and I'm sure that we all want to be able to make a difference. Please don't assume that "someone else" will do the job - *you* are that someone else. If you can help with this, then PLEASE step forward by contacting Gillian directly or by emailing auction2018@penicuikrugby.org

In the meantime, please also put April 21st in your diaries and start to think about what you can offer for auction.

Many thanks.

Andy
Club President
