Blues Winter Training

Winter training continues this SaturdayĀ with theĀ senior men, who are encouraging the juniors to join them. With 10 sessions, at the Lees Dome, we should have a great ability to keep our bodies ready for the season. These are full contact training sessions, with coaches being present and fun guaranteed. It is a 10$ drop in fee. JUNIORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO JOIN AND PARTICIPATE.

Details:

Saturday 5:00 – 6:00 PM

EORU Mens Team Training

After last years successful 2-0 run the Rep side is back for 2017. we had 11 various blues representing EORU in the 2 game last year and hopefully that number will grow. We have an amazing history of sending players to EORU in mens and Junior.

Blues Classics Recruitment

Blues Classics have registered to play in the Vintage Rugby Carnival. We need to start putting a team together.
It would be good to get someone to coordinate the team, separate from the organizing committee.
The age group is 40+. There are two levels of play; competitive which has regular rucking, line outs etc OR social where short line outs has everyone on their knees, no competitive lineouts, scrums etc. The draft itinerary has Opening Ceremony and reception on the Sun. Aug 20 late afternoon. The reception includes food, beer and wine; Mon is a rugby day; one game with the opportunity to play with other teams or drink beer with 600 rugby friends; Tues we are looking at an International Business Reception, free food, beer and wine for those who register; Wed another rugby day; Fri a rugby day and Sat night a banquet with food, beer and wine included. There may be other activities which are not included in the price such as the Craft Beer Festival or a Red Blacks game if there is one scheduled.
The cost per player for the weeks activities is $350.00. This includes the above mentioned plus the hidden costs to put the event on: tent rentals, entertainment, athletic therapists etc
If you are interested in participating please e-mail leepowell@rogers.com

Blues Kukri Custom Store

The winter sale is incoming, a chance to order custom Blues Kit.

This year we plan on having rain jackets, track pants, Bucket hats and playing gear. Keep your ear to the ground as the store will be open for 2 weeks.


Communications Coordinators for the 2017 Season

So the Comms team is looking for volunteers to Ā help with content for the 2017 season across all our teams. This includes Photos and Game Reports or Match summaries, the name is still in focus group testing. These items would all be published on our website and spread across our network, mostly going out on the Tuesday of each week. We are looking to connect everyone in the club with the results and successes of all teams across the club. This would include:

  • Score, location, league
  • Line-up for the game
  • Scorers
  • 250 words on how the game went
  • Clear blues bias is allowed and encouraged

If you’re interested in helping the club out you can fill out this google form HEREĀ 

Also, speaking of Photos, you can find all photos associated with the Blues hosted on Flickr HERE
