PONSONBY RUGBY CLUB ANNUAL LUNCHEON

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 16TH 2016 AT MID DAY.

It follows the very successful Roast format we have held over the last couple of years. The first one being for Bryan Craies and the second for Keith Nelson.

This year we will be Roasting Phil Gifford aka Loose Head Len. Phil and Loose Head have been great stalwarts and club members for over five decades. Many of our players have had their rugby careers highlighted and advanced by Phil and Loose Head and this will be our chance to say thank you.

At this luncheon, as it is an important fundraiser for the Club, we anticipate running a “Silent Auction”. To this end we are seeking donations of goods, services, memorabilia or items which would be suitable for this cause. No item too big or small. If you can assist, please advise Sandra Ioane or myself with the details.

Tables of eight may be pre-booked at a discounted cost of $950. Start putting a team together and keep September 16 free. Individual seats $125.

Table or individual bookings with Brian Lough or Sandra Ioane at the club.

In line with modern trends we are endeavouring to notify as many people as possible through email. If you receive notification of this event from more than one source, please don’t be alarmed as the Club holds several data bases. We do not mean to harass you but just want the event to be a sell out again.

JNR RUGBY CANCELLED 30 JULY 2016

Please read the message from Auckland Council as below.

All Junior Rugby (U6-U13) is cancelled for tomorrow Saturday 30th July. This is due to the continued atrocious weather over this past week, the Auckland Council has closed most of their grounds.

This needs be adhered too. The ARU work closely together with the Auckland Council and obviously we do not want young players to miss their Saturday games, but the bigger picture is to make sure the grounds are not badly damaged so that future games can go ahead.

Please note:  the only games going ahead are games drawn at College Rifles due to the nature of the surface.
