Second XV game vs Lismore - 28th March 2015

Unfortunately, the game for the Second XV vs Lismore IIs that was due to be played at Inch Park this afternoon has been CANCELLED.

Lismore were unable to raise a team. Please make your way to the public park to cheer on the First XV instead.

I believe that beer will be available for purchase over the bar.

Games and Training this weekend - 28th March 2015

Here is your weekly update on what's happening at the club over the weekend. Please note there have been several changes to the schedule since Wednesday so read this carefully to make sure that you end up in the right place at the right time.

On Saturday, the First XV play their last league game of the season. The game is at home, against Forrester, and kicks off at 3:00 pm. A bonus-point win in this game will see the boys finish 3rd in the league which would be a tremendous result given the way that the early part of the season went.

Meanwhile, the Second XV will also be in action, away to Lismore IIs in possibly their last game of the season before we switch the focus to sevens. That game also kicks off at 3:00 pm.




On Sunday, unfortunately the Hunters have been let down by Linlithgow and Murrayfield Wanderers so there are no games for the P1-P7s. Training instead for those age groups will start at 11:00 am.

The U14s have managed to pick up a last-minute fixture away at Gala Red Triangle. That game kicks off at 11:00 am so players need to be at Galashiels for 10:15 am. Contact Alan Rice for more details if you need them.

The U15s also have a game, kicking off at home at 12:30 am against Lasswade. Please note that this kick-off time is an hour earlier than previously advised. Players should be at the club for 11:30 am.

There is no training or games for the U16s this weekend.

Private Function - 28th March 2015

Members should be advised that a Private Function will take place at the Club on Saturday 28th March.

Club Members will not be asked to leave the bar, but the Management Committee ask that you be respectful of your fellow member's event and do all that you can to ensure that it runs smoothly.

Easter Camp - 13th/14th April 2015

Once again, James Sloggie and the team will be running an Easter Camp for P4-P7 boys and girls at Penicuik on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th April. The sessions run from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm on both days and the cost is just £10 per child.

Please get your bookings in early so as to avoid disappointment. There is a booking form available on the website (here) with details of where to send payment, or you can hand it in to Andy at training (with payment, preferably in a clearly-marked envelope)

Parents Meetings after training

Just to remind you that we have a Parents meeting after Hunters (P1-P7) training every Wednesday evening. At the meeting, we go through all the important notices for the week ahead and award the two children that have worked the hardest (in the eye of the coaches) over the past week the coveted “Star of the Week” trophies.

Unfortunately, attendance at the meetings have been declining over the past month or so. This makes it difficult to be certain that everyone has got the messages about games or training sessions and any other events at the club. It is also disappointing for the kids - if they have won Star of the Week but have already left then they won’t get their just reward for the effort that they have put in and the ones that are staying don’t get the full recognition that they deserve because the room is only half full.

I recognise that we all have busy lives - I can testify to that myself - and that you may want to dash off to get tea or to get to the next appointment, but I urge you all please to give us just 10 minutes of your time after training. If we haven’t finished the notices by 7:30 pm then by all means feel free to make your excuses but otherwise PLEASE take the time to come into the club and hear about what’s going on and who is doing well.

I look forward to seeing you all after training tonight and on subsequent Wednesdays.
