Reds In Your Club – Jono Lance and Teti Tela

As we announced a couple of days ago, we are honoured to be hosting two current Queensland Reds players this Friday night at training. Please click here for more info.

We also will have a canteen special of Thai “Reds” Curry cooked up by our chef Andrew!

Reminders and Regulars

All Parents Please do not “drop and go” your children, you must be present during training. We also request that parents stay off the fields during Friday night training (except Cubs & U6). 

Training equipment Please do not leave tackle pads etc unattended. Children are not to play with the equipment unless supervised by a coach.

No alcohol on the fields Please be aware that Kenmore Bears alcohol licence does not allow alcohol to be taken outside of the Clubhouse precinct. Do not take alcohol on the fields, or in the playground areas.

BBQ Duties

5:20pm – 6:30pmU7 Gold     6:25pm – 7:40pmU13 Red

Yeah, it’s cold!

It’s winter and again we’re all shocked that it’s cold at night! So, please warm up on the club’s patio area under the gas heaters, and get your hot drinks, mulled wine, and the Thai “Reds” Curry from the canteen.

Working Bee

We’ll be holding a working bee during the school holidays, to do things such as cleaning the BBQ area. If there’s anything you think you can help out with, please let us know. We’ll be detailing more potential work in the coming days.

QRF Raffle

Thank you to Queensland Rugby Foundation for giving the club the opportunity to raise money at the Reds’ game last weekend. Two families from Kenmore Rugby Club accepted the invitation to form part of the “50/50” team scouring Suncorp Stadium selling raffle tickets for the QRF’s 50/50 competition. (If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a raffle whereby the tickets are sold between the hour before the match and half time, then the kitty is split with 50% going to the raffle ticket winner and the other 50% going to the QRF’s selected charity or other cause). Last week QRF offered to split the 50% between the junior rugby clubs who put up volunteers. The Kenmore volunteers sold $850 of tickets (10% of the total) hence we raised $425 for the club. Fantastic effort!

Featured Team of the Week – U6 Harlequins

These boys have only been together as a team for a few months, but they sure know how to play great touch rugby already! Under the expert guidance of Mark Maiden (Manager, left) and Richard Magoffin (Coach, right) they are slicing and dicing their way through the opposition, and ready to shout “GO BEARS!” for photographers  😆 

From left to right: James Landers, Dylan Newell, Max Maiden, Joseph Hook, Lachlan Rau, Jake Edwards, Zachary O’Connell, Adam Magoffin, Harley Edwards, Caleb Buckeridge. (Sadly Oliver Berger was not available for the photo that day.)

Fun Fact! Harley Edwards was named after the Harlequins team in which his big brother (now U14) was playing when he and twin Jake were born.
