Membership for 2018/19

Membership (and Youth Permission) Forms for season 2018/2019 are now available for download from the club website. Membership fees become due on 1st August but there's no harm in getting your paperwork and payments in early.

Please note that Youth Permission forms are required for all players under 18 years of age.

Subscription amounts remain the same as last season at £60 for Full, Joint or Family Membership and £35 for Patron or Junior Membership. This obviously continues to offer excellent value for money.

You can download the forms from the Membership page.

If you would like to discuss any issues or problems surrounding payment or any other aspect of club membership, please email Dawn at membership@penicuikrugby.org.

Autumn Test Tickets

With apologies for the length of time this has taken us to deal with, here are the details for the ordering process for the Autumn Test tickets for this season. The SRU have attempted to simplify the process for club Ticket Secretaries which predictably has thrown our usual system into disarray.

The first thing that you will need to do (if you have not already previously done so) is register yourself with the SRU Ticketing system. Please head to https://www.eticketing.co.uk/scottishrugby/?advcode=Penicuik and click on the 'Register' link at the top right. Fill in all the details and confirm your registration.

If you have previously registered with the SRU Ticketing system then please head to the same link and 'Sign in' rather than registering.

Once you are logged in, please take note of your unique account number which you can find in the pop-up window that appears when you click on 'My Account' at the top-right of the screen. It should be displayed in brackets after your name.

Now, please download "Application Form A" from https://www.penicuikrugby.org/downloads/tickets/autumn-2018.pdf. Fill it in - remembering to include your unique account number in the relevant slot - and pass it to Andy Law along with payment as per usual.

The deadline for receipt of ticket applications (and payment) is Monday 6th August.

Hopefully, everything after that will be plain sailing. If there are any problems, please let us know and we'll endeavour to get them sorted.

Please note that you can buy tickets directly from the SRU via the Ticketing system that they now require you to register with. However, if you do so, you will be charged additional handling fees, you will not be guaranteed your tickets and you will deprive the club of the commission that represents a significant chunk of annual income and which goes to keeping our subs and other costs down. If you wish to buy 2- or 3-game Autumn Test Series passes (which are not available through "Application Form A"), then please contact Andy Law as soon as possible for details of how to do so to everyone's maximum benefit.

Former Players' Day - 18th August 2018

Calling all former players of Penicuik Rugby Football Club.

We're having a Former Players' Day at the club and we'd be delighted to see as many of you as possible attending. It's on Saturday 18th August and there will be the chance to meet up with old team mates, watch the current senior squad in a friendly pre-season warm up game against East League Division 1 opposition and maybe even take part in a semi-competitive game as we remember another former colleague in the shape of the newly-inaugurated Gordon Wilson Memorial Cup.

In that regard, we're really keen to hear from those of you who fancy a run-around, however brief, so we can put a couple of teams together. Nothing full on, but - if you're anything like me - you all still think you can do it, so why not take the opportunity to prove yourselves right or wrong? Those of you who played with Gordon are particularly encouraged to join in !!

We'd also like to take the opportunity to bring you all up to speed with current developments at the club and to share with you our plans and dreams for the future. We really want you to be a part of that present and future, not just the past.

There will be food and beer starting from 12:30 pm. We'd be delighted if you can join us and even more delighted if you'd let us know that you are coming so we can plan catering and all the other activities. Please contact us by email (info@penicuikrugby.org), via the Facebook pages or contact Craig Donald on .

You can also help us have a successful day by spreading the word amongst your fellow former players - we don't have contact details for everyone but if you can all reach out to people that you played alongside then we can get the message out as widely as possible.

Here's to some great reunions and we look forward to seeing you all on the day.

Summer Rugby Camp - 23rd-26th July

There will be another fun Summer Rugby Camp at the club this July.

It will run from 23rd to 26th July inclusive from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm each day. You can download the booking form from the club website here - places cost £35 per player and that includes breakfast. Please fill it in and send it on to the address on the form.

It promises to be great fun and the more kids that sign up, the better it is with bigger games, more mates to compete with and more new friends to be made.

We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible !

Social Events Survey - Thanks

We'd like to thank all those who attended club Social Events over the past season.

More importantly, we would like to thank all those who stepped forward to organise those events – we are immensely grateful to them all!!

And finally, we'd like to thank everyone who took the time to fill in the Social Events survey. It's really good to get feedback on what we're doing right as a club, as well as some extra ideas as to where we can improve things. We'll be looking to implement some of those ideas in the coming months, starting with the Former Players' Day on 18th August.

word cloud of events survey responses

Incidentally, if you have any ideas for events that we might trial at the club or which you think would be enjoyed by club members, then please get in touch by whatever means works for you (email to info@penicuikrugby.org, message the club Facebook page at www.facebook.com/PenicuikRugby, speaking to a committee member, leaving a note behind the bar, whatever...). We value your contributions.

We've got a group of people to work as a Social Committee so if you'd like to help out with that, your help will be greatly appreciated and readily accepted.

In the meantime, here's some of the things that were said in response to the survey.

Some Dates for your Diary

As the new season approaches, here are a few dates for your diary.

The club will be having its traditional RBS RugbyForce club repair/tidy day on Saturday 11th August. There are a number of jobs, large and small, that need to be done around the clubhouse in order to get it spick and span in readiness for what we hope will be another successful year. There will be more details closer to the time, but for now please set aside the day and be ready to turn up and help out.

The following day - Sunday 12th August - the club have been challenged to a game of cricket by our friends at the cricket club. We hope to follow this up with a game of some form of rugby against the cricketers later in the season. There has long been a good relationship between our two clubs and we're delighted that the tradition of inter-club activities is being revived. Again, please put this date in your diaries and come along to support what promises to be a most enjoyable event.

And then on Saturday 18th August, the seniors have their first pre-season game against East League 1 team Broughton and we'll also be hosting a club former players' day. If there are enough former players then there will be a bounce game played between them and the current Second XV. Again, this will hopefully be a most enjoyable day and a great way to kick off the new season.

We hope to see as many of you as possible at all of these events.
