TFI Friday 29th Aug 2014™

This is a real TFI Friday™ notice. It’s back despite complete indifference by most of the population. FREE nibbles© along the front of the bar and some of the side bar for your appreciation. DodJ willing the bar will be open by 5.04 as the first of the new season. There will be a guess the wine and cheese competition® of a good example of viniculture under £50 per bottle. This week will probably be closer to that first digit but definitely under the £50 mark. Rules are rules after all. Make it your first stop after work every Friday and if you don’t work well stop off after whatever has filled your day! If you want to provide the wine, cheese or nibbles someday please just say!


Thanks to all who supported the last pre-season game on Sat v Falkirk. Dundee missed a kick under the posts which would have won it but basically a very young Dundee team will have learned a lot about senior rugby. We picked up a few injuries which won’t help but Falkirk gave us a good test and looked a decent team.

Thanks to all our volunteers who helped on the day it is much appreciated. Always room for more!

A well supported wine and cheese made the club busy and that’s great. Many thanks and look forward to seeing you again soon at Mayfield.

Remember the Cup game away 30th Aug v Kirkcaldy 3pm KO.

Still a few spaces at the 1st Lunch club prior to the game v Marr RFC on the 6th Sept.

Sportsman’s Dinner at the Invercarse Hotel 17th Sept and if you would like to join the Club table just nobble your favourite contact. It’s a great occasion and the Club needs your support. Brian Moore is the headline speaker so sure he can handle any heckle. Neebs this is not a challenge!

There is a massed iced water challenge on Sunday at Mayfield if you want to join in at 12 midday. Could be a world record according to Guinness! Or was that a man drinking Guinness? No matter, come along for some fun and watersports. Bring your own towel.

Ice Bucket Challenge

Dundee Eagles Rugby Club have been challenged to take part in the worlds latest fundraising craze – The Ice Bucket Challenge.

We would like to get as many PLAYERS, OFFICIALS, COACHES, SUPPORTERS, PARENTS, PHYSIOS, BAR STAFF, etc from the Eagles and Dundee High Rugby involved.

This will take place this Sunday (31 August), 12noon at Mayfield. As a large number of participants is expected we may not have enough buckets so have arranged for a Fire Engine to supply the water

Please share this amongst your contacts and help us make this THE cold water challenge to remember!!!

Donations should be made to Cancer Research UK and Motor Neurone Disease Association

Almost a TFI Friday™ 22nd Aug 2014

Yes it’s a very early “almost a TFI Friday™” but for a very good reason. Advance notice of two events. The first proper TFI™ will be Friday 29th August so please get it in your diary NOW. The bar will open at 5.04 to give Dod a chance to get organised (hence the early notice!) As it is the 1st of the new season there will be special FREE Nibbles on the bar© and a special prize for guess the wine© from one of our sponsors who I can’t name just now because I haven’t asked them yet! But it will be special a bit like my needs! If you want to organise one of the famous TFI’s in the future please just put your hand up. On second thoughts maybe just email me!
The second and more importantly as it occurs this Sat (23rd Aug) coming is the Wine and Cheese from 1pm prior to our last pre-season friendly v Falkirk at Mayfield with a 3pm KO. FREE entry and wine and cheese on presentation of a pearl diver. That’s slang for five pounds yes only a mere £5. Bank of England ones acceptable and all other Scottish or NI ones also acceptable. No white sided, British Linen ones or poor photo copies please.
