As we come to the end of 2020, moving into another lockdown and with the Clubhouse flooded once again, there is one thing I can say with some assurance ' Things can only get better!!'
Although times have been tough for everyone, those associated with the Club have, as expected, shown remarkable fortitude. The Minis and Juniors Coaches have done a fantastic job ensuring Rugby in some form has been available for all, whilst sticking to the challenging Safety guidelines, with the Senior Coaches maintaining positivity and enthusiasm ensuring good attendance at training for the Adult Section.
I would like to give two special thank yous. Firstly to the Minis and Juniors parents, who have provided full membership payments across the board for a reduced return in terms of actual sesssions, and secondly to the Club's Vice Presidents who have not only paid their membership in full, but have provided numerous additional cash donations. Thanks to your generosity the Club is in a relatively secure financial state.
When circumstances have improved and the vaccine has been widely distributed, myself and the Committee are looking forward to hosting a monumental 'Return to Rugby Celebration'. With all the social events that have so far been postponed, this could well take the form of a Presidents Weekend Picnic Ball Beer Festival extravaganza!
In the meantime, I hope you and your families all have as good a Christmas as possible, remain healthy and I look forward to seeing you in 2021.
Up the Stags!
