The club runs a very successful "50" Club with an average 100 members each month and this raises a sum in the region of £1,000 per annum, which helps pay for travel costs, making the "50" Club a major source of fund-raising for the club and as such the continued support of existing members is of vital importance.
We would also like to increase the number to reach the 150 if at all possible.
There is a monthly draw of the existing members which takes place at each monthly committee meeting.
Each member pays £2.00 per share per month with 50% of the income going out in prizes.
You may take as many shares as you wish.
If you are not a member please complete the bankers order below and return it to Olga Burton, Raasay, Grainpark, Kirkwall KW15 1UL or alternatively you may send a cheque for £24.00 for each share you wish, or you can set up a Standing Order, this will ensure your place in the monthly draws for one year.
Please email quantity of shares to firstname.lastname@example.org if not sending back the below form. Cheques should
be made payable to Orkney Rugby Football Club and sent along with the form to me.
N.B. Those who filled in a bankers order in the past need not do anything, unless of course you wish to purchase more shares.

The SRU have published an article about Angus Buchanan, the man who scored Scotland’s first try in an international v England.
Angus is mentioned on page 2 of the ORFC 50th Anniversary Book and he has strong Orkney connections having been posted to Orkney with his bank. His wife and two of their children are buried in the St Magnus Cathedral churchyard. Peter McKinlay, John Copland and Ian Carse contributed to the research conducted by the SRU for this article.
There is also a connection through Angus to J K Rowling’s work.
What links international rugby’s first match to a proud family with enduring roots to the Orkney Islands and to the Harry Potter author JK Rowling? The answer would be ruled too fanciful if it were created as the story of a modern-day comic book hero...
