Newsletter June 16th 2017

Hello to all Kenmore Bears players and members.
Our Div 1 U15’s are in the final this weekend at Redlands RUC 2pm – WDRC Gold vs GPS Blue – good luck boys!

Tonight is the last training night until after the June/July holidays, the next training night will be July 14th.
This weekend is also the last weekend of games until after the holidays with games recommencing Saturday July 15th.
Fields will be closed until training resumes for senior players on Wednesday July 12th.

Goodbye & Good luck Evan!
This weekend we say congratulations and goodbye to our Director of Coaching Evan Thompson. Evan has accepted an offer from Grenoble Rugby as a senior analyst and leaves for France at the end of June.
We look forward to establishing a club to club relationship with Grenoble Rugby Club through Evan and look forward to getting updates on his career – all the best Evan!

Field closures – why?
This week we had a complaint from one of our members regarding the closing of our fields last Sunday.

Please be assured that we don’t take these decisions lightly. It is the call of the VP Saturday and VP Sunday who arrive at the fields at approx 6:30am (on all game days) and check the condition of the fields. As our club is in a flood plain, with heavy rainfall it is usual for our fields to flood. The cost of repairing damage to the fields is hugely expensive so if we can avoid damage we do.
We were not the only club to cancel games last Sunday and unfortunately some of those clubs who had to play games are now facing huge repair costs.

From the canteen tonight!
Entertainment – tonight we have Cohen playing the guitar and singing.
Dinner tonight – Pero’s Thai Red Chicken Curry with jasmine rice and pappadam $10.00
Byron Bay Pizzas $14.00
Lemon pepper calamari, Asian coleslaw & lime aioli $10.00

BBQ Roster tonight: 5:30pm U7 White 6:30pm U11 Black
