Western Suburbs RFC Today

8 January 2009

Not sure who they are or why they were doing this Haka nude but I thought I'd post it anyway...

Bugger practice, this coming Saturday, January 10, 1030 Panzer Pitch. Everyone interested in getting a run please post your availability for touch followed by rehydration/lunch. Post replies on message board under "Saturday 10 January". Anyone that forgets where Panzer Pitch is, directions are on the web site.

from Kermit D. Frog concerning Savannah trip: "I have 5 beds open from people who said they wanted the beds held, but no $$$ as yet. Total Payment of $240 is due 02/01/09. If you are not paid up, I will sell your bed. If I have under 17 persons paid, I will be contacting other clubs..."

Send $$$ ASAP to:
Chris Cahill
3230 Wellington Rd.
Alexandria, VA 22302

from OD: "I think it is time that the club does something for the community to remain a locally responsible club. How many guys are able to/interested in giving blood? It has been a while since I have seen the latest restrictions on donorship, but we should be able to come up with at least a couple of dozen donors. If we can get a sense of how many of us are candidate donors and it makes sense for Red Cross, we can consider holding a blood drive on our own or with one or two of our sponsors.

Please post up whether you are eligible and interested to give, and we'll see what we can put together. We should do it before the start of the season, since the Red Cross instructions will likely indicate that donors should give themselves at least a few days to recover blood volume before any strenuous activity.

I don't know about the karmic benefits or trying to righten the balance of the Universe, but...
1) I look at it kinda like an oil change, y ou just don't swap it out all at once - you give some away and make some new.
2) It is a cheap buzz if taken as a prelude to a couple of beers...

There you have it: a healthy reason and a deeply degenerate one - take your choice... they do need blood desperately, and it would be something to connect us to the community - the largest questions are how many units can we commit and whether it's enough for a bloodmobile, and if it is, where to park it during the drive."

Post your interest on the message board under "Blood Drive".

And, for some inpsirational reading: an article from our own Buzz McClain concerning American rugger Mike MacDonald being named Captain at Leeds.
