Fundraising has been an important part of the Club Committee's function.
Grants are applied for all teams for travel, accomodation etc. It is the luck of the draw as to what we receive, but it is never enough for everything.
We are always on the lookout for new fundraising ideas so please talk to one of the Committee if you can help. Even better, put your name forward for the Committee.
Pan Pacs will be held next year in Auckland. It is hoped we will be able to send a team in each grade which makes 8 teams with approx $7000 needed for each - you do the maths for the required funds!
We need your help to meet this challenge. If you would like to be involved please tell us now

On behalf of the Club and the committee, many congratulations to Ben, Paora, Chris and Eamon on their selection to the New Zealand Schoolboys squad (final 15) from which 13 will form the team to play in the Tri Series in Australia in December.
It must be a long time, if ever(??), since the club has had 4 players in the Schoolboys team, and it's a feat that they can all be very proud of, and testimony to all the hard work that they have put in over the last year and more.
Well done to them all - if they represent NZ as well as they have the Club then the Schoolboys team will have a solid and dependable core of players!!
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
