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.
There will be touch rugby on at K.G.S. this Sunday @ 1300.
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.
This is a reminder that Orkney RFC will be fundraising at the Blue Door, Kirkwall next week (Mon 11th June to Sat 16th)
We still need volunteers to work in the shop which is open Mon-Sat from 9:30am - 4pm
If you can help out with a stint in the shop, please contact Nickie Milne on mobile O7795 434 508 or via email ASAP.
