Saturday 25th October at Vallis Way promises to deliver a feast of rugby from the Men’s Section plus Race Night entertainment for players, their wives and girlfriends, and members and supporters of The Club.
During the afternoon there are three home matches:
- Men’s 1sts v Chinnor, a top of the table Zoo Sheild clash on the 3G pitch
- Men’s 2nds v Rosslyn Park, Park riding high in MMT2
- Exiles v Hammersmith & Fulham
After the match all will retire to the clubhouse for post-match hospitality and match awards.
In the evening we have a Race Night. This is a fund raising event for the forthcoming tour to Bucharest where we are the hosts of Rugby Dracula Old Boys, a pint of beer costs just 90p, and the traditional Ottoman cuisine is based on a wide range of vegetable and tripe soups with a characteristic sour taste [Wikipedia]. Put the dates Friday 15th May to Monday 18th May in your diaries now. Also start working on getting your appropriate tour approvals in place.
The Race Night is being hosted by Adam Hulmston and Des Crinion. But don’t be fooled – this is a professionally hosted Race Meeting from www.exclusiveracenights.co.uk on the BIG SCREEN.
There will be eight races during the Meeting, with the first race at 20:00. Before each race there’s an opportunity to have a flutter on the Ealing Trailfinders Tote. In between races there will be spectacular musical entertainment, and various raffles. All proceeds go to the Bucharest Tour Fund.
So Saturday brings forth a feast of rugby and post-match revelry plus all the excitement of a “Day at the Races” in the club house. And an opportunity for our new and old players to socialise in a civilised way with their partners and friends.
Entrance for the Meeting is £5 per person, payable on the night.
This event is open to all members of the club so come and join in the fun.
