Scribes Minis:
Hi Players and Parents,
This weekend is a rugby Jamboree hosted by the Bayside Sharks in South Surrey and should be a lot of fun, with a lot of clubs attending from Nth Vancouver to Abbotsford.
The games start at 10am and finish 11:00am – 11:30am. If we can have everyone there by 9:45am to organize our teams that would be great. I hope to see you all out as our season has only two more Jamborees this season, hopefully we’ll get some nice weather for it as well.

Please remember mouth guards.
