The Senior, Junior and Social membership forms have been updated for the new season. You can complete them online or download & print them at home.
If you are completing a paper form, please ensure it says “Valid from August 2018" at the bottom. Older forms are obsolete and should be discarded.
Karen Brough is the new Junior & Social Membership convenor & her contact details along with Steven Bruce (Senior Memberships) & Olga Burton (Treasurer) can be found on the relevant forms or the club's Contacts Page.
Players / parents are reminded that they must also complete a SCRUMS registration in addition to completing a membership form.
Only paid up members of Orkney RFC who are SCRUMS registered will be able to play rugby this season.
Olga will be at the club tomorrow, 18th August during the Doddie Gump Fundraiser to help with any membership or SCRUMS enquiries.
In addition to the 5K walk, there will be Rugby, BBQ, Bouncy Castle & home bakes - so get along to the club from 12:30 for a great day out and get yourself & kids sorted for the upcoming season!

TOUCH RUGBY & CALCUTTA CUP VISIT
Thursday 14th June 2018
6 - 8pm at ORFC
The Calcutta Cup is coming to Orkney Rugby Club!
The historic cup, won by Scotland in February, will be in the county on Thursday 14th June and after visiting schools in Stromness & Kirkwall it'll be on display at Orkney RFC.
Alongside this visit we are hosting a touch rugby come and try session open to everyone from 6-8pm.
Touch is a game that can be played by anyone of any age and the teams can be mixed abilities, mixed age groups and mixed genders so anyone who fancies a game of touch come along to the club on Thursday night.
The games will be on the pitches behind and around the rugby club and all folk have to come along with is any sports playing gear (colours and styles don’t matters as we sort teams out on the night), and suitable footwear – boots, trainers or some other sporting footwear.
You will also have the chance to get a picture with the cup itself.
We have a new registration system with the SRU which is sending out emails to members to confirm their membership and it could be going in your spam / junk email boxes, meaning you might miss it.
Could all players / members who used the old SRU registration system please look out for any emails from the address below in your junk mailbox (or in the account you used to sign up if it is different than your usual email address), thanks.
