'Tis The Season....

Yesterday afternoon saw a gathering of some of Rugby’s best at the Temple for "Guido's Christmas Lunch".  Sponsored by Guido Danger with tons of support work by Ed Knaggs and Ian “4 Try” Jones ….the return to a sit down lunch was well attended.  Consistent with tradition, each person present stood and gave thanks while noting a memorable rugby moment in their lives. Memories when a young player new to the game …. questionable stories of greatness ….. happy tales of friendships remembered ….. this lunch was one for the ages

We would also love some fun community building donations from players and families - these types of donations were hot auction items last year!  Some examples: cooking supper and delivering it to the winner’s home, hosting a supper at your home, homemade baked goods delivered (1 per month for 3 months). The scope is endless!
