1 Guys its been a funny old year and I want next year to get off to the
right start. I don't think we have enough ciomitted Vets toplay in a Vets
league yet and we should not be attracting good youngsters who could be
training and making their way up the club.
With the Dragons dropping out of MM1 it will currently only be the Occies
position in the Merit leagie beside the first XV in London 3
What I need to know already is how many of you Vets that may feel you
have hung up your boots would be willing to play a few selected games a
year. My dream is we get a team out every 4 to 6 weeks of all the old heads
*playing or supporting) Red Geth Bev Geoff Adams Fluffy etc with a mix of
the new or still relatively fit to do coach trips away or the odd weekend
(like torquay, etc). To do this though we need a team so if this sounds like
something you would be interested in let me know. Also if you were only
playing the odd game what sort of membership wiould you want,
A memberhsip with a full club membership (season ticket international
allocation) or something else. I would appreciate feedback as I have heard
so many different requirements in the Bar I want to model a place for the
Occies to get back what they used to be about, predominantly having a bl**dy
good laugh with mates and I am aware there are many of you that want to play
but not as part of the merit league.
2 Guys can we really start to put our money down for tour. Pils has done a
great deal of work organising and a load of you have voted for Kiev so that
is the destination, if you voted and ousted Malta you really should be
paying up. Can you confirm to me and Pils that you are going on tour. Our
tours are great fun, more relaxing than hard work as it's about having fun
not being trashed at 11 in the morning.
3 Guys Terry etc are trying to get a table for the Adam Jones dinner at the
club. Can you let me know if you want to go to this. Its balck tie details
on the main club website.
