Dear Member
Dai Tanner Memorial Lunch 14/04/2018.......‘Vees’ v Datchworth

The 14th April was to be the annual Vice Presidents Lunch however the Club has decided, after consultation with the Tanner family, that the lunch should commemorate the passing of Dai Tanner who died in October 2016.

Dai’s work for the Club is legendary, having served the Club for over 40 years as a player, team captain, committee member, and treasurer. He was also involved with Herts. County Rugby, which included spending several years as their treasurer. He was also President elect, but had to withdraw due to ill health.

Jo and the family will be attending the lunch, including Gareth who is flying from USA for the occasion.
Note profits from the lunch which will include a crowd ‘bucket’ collection will be donated to the charity Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Early indications are the lunch will be popular with members, so book early to avoid disappointment. The cost for the lunch will be £25.00 per head and we look forward to seeing you on the day, note 12.30 for 1.00, with kick off at 3.00pm. Please tell old members of the ‘Vees’ about the lunch especially if they knew Dai as they are most welcome. Please send your reservations using the slip below to me or ring/email me or Shanks on (h)01582 620985 or (m)07803677213. If you are unable to attend the lunch and would like to make a donation to the nominated charity, please send to me making cheques payable to OVRFC.

If anyone would like to sponsor the match/lunch or donate a raffle prize please let Shanks know.

The menu for the day includes:-
A variety of roast meats (i.e. Ribeye of Beef, Rack & Rump of lamb combo, and gammon), a fish dish and vegetarian option, all served with a selection of seasonal vegetables. Any Vegetarians, please advise when making your reservation.
Followed by a selection of sweets, cheeses, fruit and filter coffee.

As deadline is approaching please return your RFU Raffle Ticket counterfoils and money in the envelope provided.
If you haven’t paid this seasons subscription please send to me immediately, or if you no longer wish to be a member of the Vees do the decent thing and let me know. So that you can be deleted from the Club Membership List.

Yours Sincerely

Tom Atkinson [on behalf of the Committee]
