MRU Finals- Brandon is Hosting!

Posted on October 3, 2013 at 9:27 PM Comments comments (41)
To All Rugby Manitoba Clubs and Members,
The Brandon Barbarians RFC would like to formally invite all clubs, members and fans out to join us on Saturday October 5th to celebrate the Rugby Manitoba Championships. We as a club take a great amount of pride in hosting events and would just like to outline the agenda for the day and some general guidelines.
The canteen, BBQ and beer garden will open at Noon until 8pm. The entire park is licensed and this means that you can consume your beverage anywhere within John Reilly Field. We do ask that no outside alcohol be brought in to the facility (unfortunately this includes champagne for celebrations) and that you do not leave the park with open alcohol.
Parking is available in our usual parking lot as well an overflow parking lot across the street that will be clearly marked. These parking lots will be regularly patrolled to ensure MLCC compliance and we ask that you all respect this.
With the amount of spectators and players expected and the beer garden being extended to include the entire park we also ask that no dogs or pets be permitted on the field. This is a liability issue and on such a busy day we do feel that it would be inappropriate to have dogs there
As Rugby Manitoba stated the first game of the day will Kick Off at 11:45. This game will take place on field #2 (the south pitch) while the remainder of the games will take place on Field #1 (which is our typical match field). The games are scheduled to kick off at 12:30, 2:30 and 4:30 respectively. We would ask that all teams be ready five minutes early to allow time for the National Anthem. For the presentation of the anthems, please line up on your half of center on the 15 yard line facing the crowd, while the officials will line up in between the two teams.
Field two will be available for warm up after the initial match, water is available in the building in our parking lot via an outside tap, and change rooms will be located between the two fields.
Rugby Manitoba awards presentation will be hosted shortly after the final match of the day, this will take place on the deck in front of field #1.
Sandy Donald and Scott Harland will be the Match Commissioners for the day and they will ensure that games start on time and that celebrating teams clear the playing field in a timely manner.
For any teams or individuals spending the night in Brandon to celebrate the end of another rugby season, we have arranged a social for the Saturday night at the Roadhouse Night Club located in the Canad Inns. Tickets will be available to purchase at the beer garden at a cost of $5.
Finally congratulations and best of luck to all teams that have qualified for their respective final, we are looking forward to seeing everyone this coming Saturday. And if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me directly [email protected] or 204-573-2772.

President BBRFC

Posted on June 12, 2013 at 9:00 PM Comments comments (25)
Please let all your Senior men know about the next senior men provincial training session this upcoming Sunday June 16th
Where: MGRP
When: 1:00pm - 3:30pm
Date: June 16

This training session will determine if there is enough interest in having a senior men's provincial squad this season.  It is imperative that we have at least 30 interested people attend this session.  If someone is interested but cannot make it for some reason please have them contact Jim Russell at [email protected].

We are relying on all our senior men to show their support otherwise Manitoba will go another year with a senior men's program.  The more provincial programs we can run the better rugby can grow in our province.
