A Happy New Year to you all.
I hope that those that turned out for what was an almost summery Tartan Touch on Boxing Day didn’t suffer too many ill effects from the exertions. Given the success of the event this is definitely something that needs to be on our annual calendar going forwards.
Weekday training sessions have started again this week, with some being held indoors for the coming month. Saturday will see all the usual training sessions starting.
The U18 game planned for Saturday has been postponed.
Do you use Amazon for your online shopping?
This could be your way of earning donations of 0.5% of the net purchase price for Club funds. Full details are available on the DRFC website. Together with easyfundraising this is another easy way to generate much needed funds.
As you may have read in the press recently there has been a lot of talk about the use of headgear and how beneficial they are. The Rugby Plus closing down sale (prior to reopening under new ownership) could be your chance to pick up some new headgear (and lots of other kit) at a very good price. Offers available on their website or in the shop.
An easy way to generate funds is to do your online purchasing through the easyfundraising page. If you have not already signed up, please use this link and generate an additional bonus. From the reports that I’ve seen there are a small number of people that use the link - if the use was extended it is an easy way to generate funds for the Club. Why not use the link for all your online Christmas shopping, holiday purchases etc.
