We are super excited to announce our latest fundraising challenge, which starts on the 8th  February 21,  for a whole month!

Dundee Rugby Club are undertaking the Dundee Rugby & Togs Discovery Challenge!

We will be emulating Captain Scott’s voyage of Discovery to Antarctica.

That’s 10123.37 miles in one month, we are going to cover those miles as a club, so an estimated 208 miles per person, walking, cycling, running, rowing, any form of exercise you can.

We hope to raise as much money as possible for the club and will be donating 20% of all funds raised to local charity Togs for Tots 

It is open to everyone associated with the club; ex-players, presidents, buffties everyone!

There will be weekly updates with how far we have gone and a bit of friendly competition between the fundraisers. We also have facebook frames and a strava club for everyone to from our club to share and show their support!

More details shortly but we will be holding a Zoom meeting on Monday 11th January 2021 @ 18:30 with more info for those thinking of taking part,  including how to log your miles and where your donations are to be made.

The Big Player’s BBQ

The players have been training hard and shedding pounds in preparation for the new season. We don’t know when big Nicola will give us the green light for the season, but after all that hard work they need to let their hair down.

This see’s an extension on the times the bar will be open this Saturday from 3pm – 8pm, that’s an extra two hours. Imagine what you can do in two extra hours, so much time for activities!

 

There is an Ibiza/Hawaiian beach themed fancy dress and Addie has even arranged to cook some burgers. Get your ticket for an Ayrton Senna (tenner/£10) via this link below on Eventbright.

Annual Awards Dinner

The Annual Ball took place last Saturday 21st April at the Apex Hotel and we had food and drink and a great band.
As usual the McKay’s worked tirelessly to ensure this year’s event was another success. Well done to them and all the numerous other volunteers who help make it a wonderful evening.
One of the main reasons for the ball is that it is an opportunity to honour everyone involved throughout the season who has contributed to the clubs’ continuing success.
Here are a list of the annual award winners.
Player of the Year – Ali Mackie
Players Player – Angus Farquhar
Most Improved – Angus Farquhar
Best Newcomer – James Forrester
Titans – Struan Gartley
Kicking cup – Josh Rutnagur
Clubman – David Rankine
Supporters – Mike and Campbell Cunningham
Well done to those award winners.

Ballers!

Everyone wants to be a cash money baller, do you have the swag?

Oh S**t, Gerry did mean that kind of ball, my bad…..

Actually your all invited to our really really good event at the Apex. It’s our end of season ball and playing awards for the club and junior sections. Highlights in previous years have involved a plant pot and a salt ring, as well as an ABBA tribute band.

I was sold at ABBA, Mama Mia is a great flick.

There are spaces still available, and if you have nine friends why not book a table, if you don’t have 9 mates we’ll find them for you.

The price is£42.50 pp (Students £37.50) and that includes a three course meal and live music. That’s a bargain, you cannae get anything else decent for £40 can you, except this chocolate fountain I’ve just seen it online and it’s a cracker. Imagine having a chocolate fountain in your house, that’s what dreams are made of… Hugh Heffner didn’t even have it that good.

 

If you want to book, go on you know you want to, contact a senior club official or preferably Ken McKay  ken_mckay@btinternet.com

I’ve also heard that some of the players have dates, to avoid disappointment on seeing who actually managed to get a date, get your bookings in as soon as possible.

Watch Ireland v Scotland @ Mayfield

        

In response to quite a few queries, we can confirm that the clubhouse will be open on Saturday for the those who wish to watch Scotland continue on their unstoppable march to the 6 Nations championship!

Where else would you possibly want to watch this?!  (Ok, in Dublin maybe but apart  from there….)

Kick off is at 2.15  but the club will be open from 1 pm to give everyone a chance of that important pre-match warm-up.

Catering: there will be food available for those who wish – and at a very reasonable cost! There will be a pot or two of Irish Stew on the go, followed by a Scottish cheeseboard + oatcakes etc. Unfortunately the wine will also be either Irish or Scottish.*

There might even be a Baileys Irish Cream Cheesecake!

All are welcome to come along – but we would like a bit of heads up, particularly as regards the catering, so please let Gerry or Derek know if you are thinking of coming:

gerry@ppinvest.co.uk or dlawson@thorntons-law.co.uk

We hope to see you there on Saturday.  Keep the faith!

Herr Rojo’s Halloween Party

Halloween at Dundee High Rugby means the annual Halloween party.

 

Halloween, as we are all aware is an opportunity for younger aspiring sportsmen and woman to dress up and hunt for sweeties. Unfortunately, none of us are of such an age anymore. So, what better alternative to come to Mayfield Clubhouse and enjoy a few cold ones with your rugby family.

The party is due to kick off at 7.30 where you will be greeted with a smile and a cocktail at the door.

We have a few games lined up and a few costume based prizes (individual and group).

There are some drink deals sorted and the plan is to take full advantage of these and party well into the night (circa 11.30pm, Angus’ bedtime).

Of course, we are an open clubby, so tickets are open to friends, family and female friends who you may or may not be dating (just to clear that up for you George).

This is a tradition at this club and not a party to be missed.

Tickets cost £7. Tickets will also be sold at the door, however, they will be limited so to avoid missing out find me on Thursday and get them early.

Here are a few pictures from the last party.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN 🎃👽👹
