Hi team, unfortunately we found out late last night that Squamish wasn’t able to host us this weekend. They had 170 kids already and couldn’t add anymore due to field size etc. Too bad, I was looking forward to getting out of the city and the Gondola ride and hike would’ve been great.
 
My kids are on professional days for today and Monday (again!) which had me concerned that many might be away for the weekend. Can I ask that you respond this morning, if possible, if you’re able to attend training at trout lake on Sunday. If we have many that are out of town perhaps a break in the action is required. Doug and I are here this weekend but thought we should ask who’s around.
 
If the numbers are good we will train as usual. Thanks for your replies.

Hi team,
fantastic work last week at the United jamboree. Very proud to see our grade 2/3s running with a full squad. Great weather too for a change. This week we are training at trout lake at 10:00. I see a jamboree scheduled for the 24th in white rock/south surrey. there’s some talk of Squamish inviting us up for a joint practice and match and possibly free tickets to a gondola ride in Squamish. This would be 17th April I believe and could be a great Sunday event for families. Last year my family checked out the old Britannia mine in Squamish and that too is a lot of fun. I’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
 
Big thanks to rugby dads Andrew, Dave and Angus for helping me out last week in Doug’s absence, as well as Mens Scribes Gavin and Evan! Bring any friends as the season is winding down that might be interested in next season. I think all the kids loved the kids against parents match at the end, perhaps we can keep it up?
 
See you Sunday, advertising sunny and 16 c.
 
BRING YOUR MOUTHGUARDS
 
Ps, if you see I forgot a parent in the email thread please forward on for me and let me know. I’m struggling with the old iPod/pads, cellular phone thingmes. 
 
Cheers, mike
