Christmas Children’s Party – Our annual Children’s Christmas party takes place this Sunday, commencing at 2pm and concluding around 4pm. Admission is €5.00 per child which includes Magic Show, Selection Box and of course, a meeting with Santa Claus and a present as well. Our very own “Three Ho’s” will once again be reprising their roles and Santa’s Little Helpers will be in attendance also. The Kids Party takes place in the Main Hall , with the small bar set aside as a sanctuary for weary parents, where they can relax for a while as the young folk are entertained. As some kids may not have attended training for a few weeks, could we ask our Mini’s Coaches to get the message out to all kids within their group about the party – thanks.

Club Fund Raiser – Race Night on Friday 11th December at clubhouse. Hope you enjoyed the Race Night/Coaches night out as the Club last Friday night. A very enjoyable night - thanks to all who supported the night.

2016 Calendars – our 2016 Youth Section calendars are now available from the Club shop. Please note that we have a limited stock of these, and are sure to be a hot seller for Christmas, so avoid disappointment and get your copy on Sunday!!!

Coaches rain jackets – they’re here!!!! For those who ordered jackets a few weeks ago, we have received the jackets this week. Please contact me after training this Sunday for collection/payment.

Bag packing at Tesco Dooradoyle – Friday 18th 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. – as previously advised, we have an opportunity to fund raise for the Club this Friday. If anyone can give an hour or two it would be greatly appreciated, as we are struggling for numbers. Thanks.

Yours in rugby,

Ciaran O’Callaghan

Chairman, Young Munster R.F.C. Youth Section
