FIRST MEETING and EGM Monday 19th August - Vipers 7.30pm

There will also be fitness test and those wishing to take partshould be there in time for it to start at 6.30 pm! (development squad, it is a must!)


The season is nearly upon us and it is time to dust of those smelly boots and get yourself ready for the fun that lies ahead in the 2019/20 season!


The first members' meeting will be combined with an EGM for the adoption of a revised constitution to take account of our affiliation to the RFRU, the inclusion of a "data officer" within the Committee's structure, as well as the allocation of a "Safeguarding Officer" role to one of our existing Committee. The calling notice for the meeting, together with the accompanying constitution can be found here. You will also note that the Committee has proposed the appointment of new Vice Presidents and these will also be dealt with as part of the EGM.


As part of the normal meeting you will also be able to collect your handbooks, provided you have paid your subs! Subs can be paid directly or on the night in cash. Subs for the coming 2019/20 season are £15 for active referees and £10 for all other society members and referees in full-time education. You will also be required to re-state your agreement to our data terms and conditions.


Tom will also be delivering training on the "Decision Tree" relating to High Tackles and how to award the correct level of sanction, as well as the new directive to avoid front row loading.


It will be a busy night and the committee looks forward to seeing you all there, in the meantime, the newsletter can be read here.
