Membership Update

As everyone will be aware, the Covid 19 pandemic has seriously impacted society in 2020 and rugby below professional level unfortunately has been suspended until 31 October at the earliest.  A series of meetings will take place during early September at Murrayfield and a revised competition structure for National League and Premier Clubs will be issued by mid-September, with games commencing 31 October 2020.  As soon as we are aware of the structure membership forms and season details will be issued.

We are currently unable to utilise Rubislaw due to a blanket ban by A.C.C. on sharing school facilities until 30 September 2020.  Training for adults will commence week of 31 August at Sheddocksley, with the mini/youth section commencing later in September at the same venue. Arrangements are being made to utilise the International School at Pitfodels facilities for the winter.

Dr. Fraser Sutherland is our lead Covid Officer and detailed plans regarding player and public safety are being issued before the commencement of any rugby activity.  Likewise, the Club Centre re-opens Friday 28 August with limited hours Thursday to Sunday each week. Strict Covid procedures are in place within the Club Centre with capacity of the lounge being 24 patrons.

Anyone with questions regarding any of the above should contact Gordon Thomson at g.thomson.t21@btinternet.com or 07718 905003.
