On7.09.13 the 3 arms of the Club are organizing a whole club function. Put this date in your diary now.
Ladies By now hopefully you are aware that this season we have tried to open up the club to the whole family by starting a ladies 7’s touch rugby competition. This is for all ladies (incl mother and daughter combinations) – there is no requirement to have a child in the club prior So feel free to invite your friends both young and old. The time has now come for us to begin. As we have school holidays beginning next week we will run the first few Mondays as a “meet and greet” where we will get up-skilled on the rules and begin to formulate teams for the season – as well as get sizing for the new ladies jerseys. We have a number of coaches and referees lined up to assist us with the knowledge of the game and the skills that will help us enjoy the experience.
On Saturday April 6 and 7, club volunteers undertook planting of stabilization shrubs on the eastern banter of Boronia Park 3, in anticipation of the oval being finished. In total there was around 2,700 square meters to be planted. This weekend had been set aside for this massive task and the club had undertaken to plant 500 shrubs for the council over this period. It was clear by lunchtime Saturday, that the overwhelming enthusiasm and generosity of our volunteers would smash the quota and as we had more volunteers arranged on Sunday, more Shrubs were required! In total 1,200 holes were dug, plants inserted and mulched in-place. With volunteers arriving all day long, many armed with spade and barrow, it was a tremendous effort by all involved. Special mention should also go out to Meredith Kirton, who volunteered to oversee the planting for the club and was there the entire weekend. Thanks again to all those involved.
