It has been a week since the announcement of our Club’s 2014 Alcohol Free policy and I am so excited and really looking forward to the year ahead after receiving numerous positive feedbacks about the move. After 12 months we will really know how successful this positive and new initiative is. To be fair you can find alcohol anywhere these days if you want some. Note please that we have kept our Bar license open until 2015 for the concerned few. As I mentioned time after time that, if you continue to do the same thing every year you will always end up with the same result. So, as a forward thinking sports club, let’s all get going, remain supportive and move on to more exciting things happening this year.
Firstly, let’s all get down and support our Richmond Premier Team who are finally competing in the 2014 Fox Memorial Shield competition where we should have been in the first place. The Coach, staff and the players have done the hard work during summer and are rearing to go! The Richmond Board and our whole Club have really got behind our top team this year securing some excellent sponsors for the club. We have a great group of players including new Premier 1st coach Luisa Avaiki’s players who will be great back-up for our top team. We have some young players coming through the grade as well and we are all excited about their campaigns this year.
As a club we are also very proud that the Fox Memorial Launch this year was held at our club rooms last Friday 28 March by the Auckland Rugby League. I call on all other Richmond senior teams plus the Roses to get their teams organized and have a great year ahead. Check out some of the images from the night on our club website Photo Gallery.
