Dear 200 Club Member,
Welcome to Newsletter number 17.
My apologies for the later draws for May and June but I’ve been away.
The winners for June are
£200 – Number 153 – Tim Morel, from the Mini & Junior Section
£100 – Number 7 – Hywel Jones, from the Walking Rugby section
£50 – Number 49 – Gillian Rackley, wife of the 1st XV Manager
The cheques are on their way to these winners and congratulations to them.
We have spent some of your money. As you know 50% of the subscriptions go towards Club projects which may not be possible within the RRFC Club finances. We have paid for lots of Club photos to be reframed and on the NatWest volunteering week-end, Mike Brooks, Phil Wilson and the new Club Chairman Stuart Spindler put them up in Rumbles Bar and it makes a great display. This was completed by putting up the Honours’ Boards and the whole room is becoming a good history of Reading Rugby Club. Next time you are at the Club, go upstairs to Rumbles and have a look. We still want some more memorabilia so ………….
IF YOU HAVE ANY OLD TEAM PHOTOS THAT WOULD HELP TO COMPLETE THIS FINE MEMORY OF READING RFC THEN PLEASE LET ME KNOW, email@example.com . IF THEY NEED REFRAMING IT DOESN’T MATTER, THE 200 CLUB STILL HAS A LITTLE MONEY TO ORGANISE THIS.
STUART HAS ASKED Luan and Alan FROM THE LADIES’ SECTION BUT IF THERE ARE ANY LADIES WHO HAVE ANY TEAM PHOTOS FROM PAST YEARS THEN PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
We all want this to be done before the start of the new season, about 6 weeks away so don’t delay, contact me!!!!
We had 186 members in this draw and we have potentially 3 new members for next month and 3 who should be rejoining. That leaves only 8 numbers to be filled so if you know someone who is thinking of joining then please tell them to hurry up!!!! It may be that we will have a waiting list, that would be great as we had 55 members at the start of 2017. My thanks to the 200 Club Committee for all their hard work in increasing the membership.
Also thanks to all our loyal members and to the new members.
We have some further requests in from RRFC and I should have more news on those next month.
Enjoy the lovely weather and your Summer holiday
The new season is just about 6 ½ weeks away, not long now.
