Hello Mums & Dads

HRFC Festival 2016

Thank you to everyone who contributed at last Sundays festival: whether you were a game coach, one of the roll makers on Saturday (yes there were 400 to make!), a BBQ, home-baker or Kitchen Helper, Evvy, the Pitch coordinators, one of JP’s many assistants, one of the  U14 age group, the Youth volunteers (Daniel, Malcolm, Aidan, Calum and Cameron), Niall the HRFC MA and anyone who we have forgotten!

Daniel HRFC Festival 2016

It was certainly one of the best rugby festivals that JP or Paddy has ever run (or attended)!! So again thank you – until next year!!!

 Easter

1000-1100 – Fun Games for Kids, Mums & Dads (yes, Mums and Dads too!!!!).

TROPHY

Please ensure all trophies are returned on Sunday if not done so already.  If you cannot make Sunday please confirm with age group coach and organise trophy drop off with JP

The club will be supplying Easter Eggs for those taking part, but we would ask that our fantastic home bakers provide their usual tasty fare to go alongside a cup of tea or coffee during the awards.

“Swap Shop” – I am sure that you may remember swap shop from your youth (or does that give away Paddy’s age!!!), we would love you to bring any rugby kit that is already too small for your kids to swap (remember there is still one more match at Strathendrick).  We will run another “Swap-Shop” at the start of the season as most of the kids will grow like weeds in the sun!!!

Hillfoots Dinner Dance 2014

 

The Dinner Dance is Hillfoots’ social event of the year – the one night when all sections of the club get together to celebrate our achievements across the season.  And what a season – the 2014 Dance is sure to be one to remember!

 

We’ve seen record numbers in the Junior Section, from the Tag Tigers right through.  Our U16s took the Caledonia Midlands league by storm in their debut season, losing only one game and winning the title.  Not content with the league in the bag, the boys also made it to the final of the Caledonia Youth Bowl, finishing runners-up to Perthshire.

 

Not to be outdone, the seniors have also enjoyed their fair share of success!  Our 1st XV has more than made up for a disappointing season last year – rejuvenated by new Head Coach, Stuart McGee – the boys wrapped up Caledonia Division 2 Midlands at the weekend, beating Kinross 42-0 and continuing their undefeated run.   

 

In a difficult season, the 2nd XV continue to field a team in Caledonia Division 4 Midlands.  In only their second year out of the reserve leagues, they have recorded some great wins over local rivals Alloa and Stirling County.

 

And who could forget our infamous Cast Tups?  The veterans’ side is well known across the country – and internationally! – for their special brand of rugby, keeping old friendships and rivalries going retirement after retirement!  In a big year for the Tups, the guys will travel to Beauvais to help our old friends celebrate their 50th Anniversary in May, before hosting the Scottish Golden Oldies Festival in Tillicoultry in August. 

 

So, there will be much to celebrate at the Devonvale Hall on Saturday 26th April.  More than a decade has passed since Hillfoots last fielded a league-winning 1st XV, and with the continuing success of the Youth Section, the future is looking bright. 

 

Please come and help us celebrate everything that makes Hillfoots special.  Tickets for the dance are available now for just £25; including a three course dinner and entertainment.  The evening gets underway at 6.30pm, with dinner served at 7pm followed by the awards ceremony.  Then it’s party time!

 

You can reserve your tickets via the details below:

Junior Section – please see Mike Power or JP Ward

Seniors – tickets are available at the bar, or by emailing Derek Paterson (derek_paterson@hotmail.co.uk)

 

If you have any questions, please contact Derek on the email above.
