April 2024 Centenary Mini Tour
Venue – The Hague – Nederland’s
Opposition – Haagsche Rugby Club (www.haagscherugbyclub.nl)
Date – Thursday April 4th – Saturday April 6th
After lots of talking and procrastination we have come up with an end of season trip. We will be heading to The Hague in then Nederland’s at the beginning of April to play Haagsche Rugby Club. We will be playing on the Friday evening at the start of what is a big weekend in Dutch rugby.
Ross Liddle has been looking into flights and by far the best value he has come up with is Edinburgh to Amsterdam. We will be heading out on the Thursday morning returning on the Saturday evening.
We will be staying in the Sheveningen district of The Hague which is the cities seafront. Haagsche RFC play in this part of the city also. Richard Mann is sorting out the hotel (No hostels, nice hotels only)
We have a plan to get a centenary tour polo, centenary playing top and a smart tour jumper which will look great with a kilt on. Mark Blair is on this.
Ben is going to create a tour programme which will entail a few personal details as requested on the attached form.
We are aiming to make the trip no more expensive than £250.00. Fund raising has already commenced and the expectation is that the tour squad take it on themselves to raise money.
What we need from you each individually, is for the attached form to be completed and returned with a modest deposit to show you are committed to the trip. Once we have confirmed numbers we will meet again and go over the details.
