Rugby Force Day Thanks - 11th August 2018

Huge thanks to everyone who turned up and worked so hard on Royal Bank Rugby Force Day to make our club look ship-shape ready for the new season.

Gang-master Andrew Mitchell had the jobs lined up and Messrs Beveridge (I and A), Horrell, Skirving (C and apprentice B), Young, Mitchell R set to with various painting, drilling and cleaning jobs. Yvonne Mitchell painted the railings and the bar surround whilst Gavin McQuillan scraped the assorted residues off the bar ceiling and polished it all up and Morag McQuillan and her sidekick for the day, Steven Ritchie, tidied and cleaned the kitchen area. Mitchell F pitched up and paintedn variously over door frames (good) and himself and his phone (not so good). Sean Thomson put in a late appearance and made an impression by standing spectacularly in the paint and then spending the rest his time in the shower, checking over Bev Senior's tile-cleaning work.

Prior to all that on Friday night, Sarah and Dawn Law did their stint by cleaning the referees' room and Alan Rice tidied the kit room.

Collectively we:

  • Replaced all the fluorescent tube lights with LED equivalents
  • Installed electronic safes in all the changing rooms
  • Scrubbed the referees' changing room and shower
  • Moved the weight holders on the cage onto the back wall to make more room
  • Took down the photos, painted the back wall of the bar area and replaced the photos
  • Tidied and cleaned the kitchen
  • Cleaned the messy splashes off the bar ceiling throughout
  • Painted the bare wood on the bar surround
  • Replaced broken and missing tiles in the showers in changing room 1
  • Tidied the kit room
  • Painted the railing at the front of the club
  • Cleaned and mopped the floor in the weights room
  • Tidied the paved area at the back of the club
  • Replaced the panelling and light above the front door
  • Painted the walls in the corridors
  • Scrubbed the floor in the foyer
  • Cleaned and re-painted changing room 1
  • Replaced the broken coat hooks in changing room 4

... all of which will make a difference to the way the club looks and feels.

Those who missed out on all the fun will be pleased to know that there are still several jobs (large and small) that need doing within and around the club which we'll be looking for you to help with over the next couple of weeks. Please speak to Andrew Mitchell to let him know when you will be able to make your contribution to the cause and to pick a task.

Once again, thanks to everyone who helped in what was a great team effort.

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.

Autumn Test Tickets Update

Thanks to all those club members who have submitted orders for tickets for the Autumn Test matches. I recognise that the new SRU system has made it a slightly more convoluted process but coming through the club system is still the best way to secure your tickets for these games and the club is very appreciative of the commission that we earn from your purchases.

The good news is that the SRU have now extended the deadline for ordering tickets so if you want tickets and have not yet ordered them then you now have until Friday 24th August to get your paperwork and payments to me.

The process remains as follows:

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.
