Don't Miss the Boat!

Week in and week out readers of this site are exposed to what CW rugby is all about, in fact this year we celebrate a Decade of Presence on the Web. Every year it becomes increasingly expensive to run a rugby club with increases on every turn, from increases of player insurance fees; union dues rising due to operational costs; increased travel costs; gear and medical supplies and to rental increases for the very field on which matches take place! Our Fundraiser Dinner is the MAIN source of operational funds. It enables us to feel proud of our individual player achievements and those of our teams, e.g. boys and girls U18 fall, Age Grade B.C. Championship; and our men’s Premier team currently sitting in second place in the league with only one loss in ten games! Our playing programs are for girls and boys, men and women from six to sixty! This does not include those who have a multitude of memories that roll around as we think of our time as Castaways, Wanderers or now as CW-ers. What a wonderful fraternity (and now for many, a wonderful sorority), our club has been and continues to be. We hope that everyone who is able to be in attendance will at the Union Club on Saturday 23rd, 6:00 for 7:00 p.m.




Our Dinner is rapidly approaching, so today we bring you a few of the other auction items available, either to prepare to bid or make a proxy bid; more often than not to be purchased under face value.  If you cannot attend, you can place a proxy bid today HERE.
