Tag Finale BBQ Review (Please also see Photo Gallery page on right)

Well what can I say , great rugby played in great spirit with great weather and great company - what a day. A big thank you to everyone who has helped in whatever capacity throughout the season and on our final day, however big or small a contribution, it has all combined to provide a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable experience. I apologise for not being able to name everyone in person who has played a part this year, (no doubt we would still be there now if I had). Needless to say everyone's efforts are really very much appreciated in building our teams and club ever stronger.

For the record it's 123 yrs (not 113 yrs as I stated) that the club has been bringing people together to enjoy rugby football and each others company. Talking of figures, we managed to raise a clear profit of £246.55 (11/12 new Jerseys) even after the cost of all medals for both Vikings and Predator teams - Alan Sugar would be chuffed to bits!

We will pass on 25 jerseys to the Predators, currently leaving 4 for the Vikings. I am however aware of at least 8 jerseys that are still to be returned, so if everyone can make a big effort to return as many jerseys as possible by the end of May, then we should easily achieve our min' target of 25 by September.

I will be looking into printing new sponsors on the jerseys over the summer, so to ensure your jersey matches that of the rest of the team, please can you make every effort to get yours back to me as soon as you can if you still have one?

Have a great summer, take a well earned rest, and I look forward to seeing you at the Family Funday on 28/08/10 (or at any of the meetings to help organise it from now until then - first one is next Thursday 29/04/10 @ M.R.F.C. 7pm in the downstairs members lounge).

Due to the Gower Cup being held this Sunday we aim to celebrate the end of our first season together by giving the current beach team 'Mumbles Predators' (next season's U7's team) a big welcome to rugby on grass at Underhill Park this coming SATURDAY (not Sunday) the 24th April at 10.30am. We will aim to give everyone a game (including any willing parents at the end if we have time!) before a team photo and a short presentation.

Volunteers are welcome to offer their services - I will orginase the purchase and delivery of refreshments, but would really appreciate any assistance in the cooking and selling of food and drink on the day. Our aim is to raise funds towards providing a full compliment of jerseys for the Predators next season.

London Welsh are also visiting and will require the junior pitch at 12.30pm for a 1pm K.O. against Mumbles U10's so all are welcome to stay on and support this match too, and to return to the clubhouse afterwards to continue to enjoy the end of season festivities.

If you would like to have your say on anything at all to do with the club then everyone is welcome to attend and contribute. If you can't make this meeting (or would prefer not to speak out yourself), then you can put any comments or suggestions through to me to raise on your behalf.

At this meeting the club would also like to discuss proposals for a Junior/Family Fun Day on Saturday 28th August followed by the "Jimmy Cracker 7's" senior's tournament on Sunday 29th August and Bank Holiday Monday 30th August (to recover!). If you can assist in any way on this proposed "FAMILY FUN DAY" e.g. catering, fundraising activities (facepainting etc?) selling programmes / lottery tickets, assisting with teams, or if you simply have any positive ideas for this inaugral event then please come forward and get involved in the meeting and assist your club.
