Subs are now due – new rate explained!
3's game tonight is OFF!
Tomorrow at OC's
• Our second pre season game last Tuesday did not take place as both coaches agreed it may harm their Warwickshire Cup games this weekend. Tonight's 3rd XV fixture has also been called off as Stratford have pulled out due to a lack of players.
• Tomorrow the first XV are at Old Coventrians in the first round of the Warwickshire Cup. We have a good looking team out. Kick off is 3pm and OC's have advised they will be charging £3 at the gate – the funds to go to their Injured Players Fund. Come along and support the guys, new and old.
• Next weekend, 6th Sept there is our first league game v Silhillians. Our new 2014/15 programme will be on display for this game. Who will be the cover star this year?
• The weekend of 5/6/7 Sept will actually see three games at Kenilworth. The Colts have arranged a trial game with Old Leamingtonian Colts on the Friday night (5th). There is the league game with Silhillians on the Saturday (6th) and on Sunday (7th) the Barbarians are taking on Princethorpe Old Boys, kick off @ 1pm.
• The Colts will also be in action on Friday 12th Sept, under the lights, with a fixture against Broadstreet, 7pm.
• Membership subs for this season are now due. This season the annual subscription fee for membership of KRFC has been much simplified and will be £95 and a discount of £10 is available if the subscription is paid in full prior to October 31st. The optional Vice President (VP) membership rate is still available, at the rate of £120. There is now no Associate Member level. The membership for a child playing for the M&Js will be based on a single family with one playing child @ £95 and the M&Js have retained the option of charging an additional premium for a second, or more, playing child, at a rate agreed by the membership at the M&Js.
All membership grades (Life, VP and Member) are eligible for International Tickets. The full detail on Membership is given on the web site. Membership and standing order forms are available on the web site as well as behind the bar with Paul.
• Minis & Juniors Registration will take place at the main club this weekend on the 6th Sept from 2pm and at the Cow Patch on Sunday 7th from 10am.
• This season we are continuing to offer Player Sponsorship @ £120. It is hoped that the sponsors from last season will continue but there are other players available at £120 (+vat). Your name will be publicized in the programme with a link to your web site (if applicable) from the KRFC site.
