Quiz Night - Saturday 21st February
We have a club fundraiser coming up on Saturday 21st February. This year we will be having a Quiz Night! Tickets will be £5 a head if purchased in advance and £6 on the night. Maximum 6 people in a team. We will have tickets at training tomorrow and for the following weeks to come. You can get tickets from Ali, Emma R, Holly, Gillian, Becca H & Becca W.
We will also need to start collecting raffle prizes so even if you can't make it on the night a raffle donation would be great, we will be collecting these at training so feel free to bring them along!
Hope to see you all buying tickets tomorrow!

Take part in the weekly fitness at Holyrood Park
Some of you may be aware that there is a weekly fitness session at Holyrood Park. It's a great chance to get fit before the new season! For details on times and meet locations, please keep an eye out on the Facebook group, and if you aren't yet a member, please get involved here.
Thank you and Key Dates
Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who attended the AGM and to those who sent in their apologies. We hope to have the minutes of the AGM out to you shortly. Also wanted to thank those who have taken on committee roles for next season. Looking forward to working alongside you.
Although the playing season is finished there are still some events / actions to keep in mind. I'll be sending out emails to highlight / remind people what those are over the coming weeks.
Rugby 7's Saturday 26th April
Each year the club sells the raffle tickets at the rugby 7's. This is a great fundraiser and we received 50% of the ticket sales so the more we sell the more we get. We also have a tombola table to raise some additional money on the day. So, what we need are volunteers to sell tickets and also tombola prizes for the day. I'm awaiting information on what time we need to be at the rugby club for. Once I have that I'll email out again. Please let me know if you can help. I'm happy to pick up tombola prizes.
Club Dinner Friday 16th May @ 7 for 7.30
A note of those attending will be sent out later this week. If you would like to come along but have not let us know please email myself of Becca Waddell. Date for final numbers is the 30th of April to enable us to finalise things with the venue and caterers.
Payment will also be needed for the 30th April. If you are paying directly into the club account can you put a reference so Emma knows who it is from and what it is for eg HWaddel Club dinner. If you could also text / email Emma once you have made the payment so she knows to look out for it.

Hoodie order update
Just to let you know that the order has been sent off now that we have the new logo registered.
I will advise when the hoodies are ready for payment and collection. If anyone else would like to order a hoodie, please let me know asap. The cost is £14. Thanks to Emma Rogers for all her help with this.
New Website - Email recieved from Ken Edwards @ Boroughmuir Former Pupils' Association - Nov 27th
Just to let you know that a few of us have resurrected the Boroughmuir Former Pupils' Association and created a new website:-
We have created a few links to "open" clubs like yourself which have a historical connection with Boroughmuir High School (see FP Club News button). There are also some old school hockey photos on the site which may be of some interest to you. You never know you may get a few new supporters or even new players through us. Good luck in your endeavours.
Boroughmuir Hoodie Order
As we have quite a few new players, I thought it might be a good time to see what the interest would be for a hoodie order - for both new and current players.
The colours available are navy, sports grey and forest green. The sizes are as below:
S (34/36"), M (38/40"), L (42/44"), XL (46/48"), XL (50/52")
Emma is in contact with the supplier and we should have a final cost for the hoodies soon. They won't cost anymore than £18 which includes the embroidered Boroughmuir logo.
In the meantime can you please let me know your order as soon as possible.
Get well soon message
I received a text this week to say that Bill Watson had had a heart attack. For those who don't frequent the rugby club, Bill is the current chairman and is one of the committee members leading the redevelopment of the rugby club.
I'm sure you will all join me in wishing him a speedy recovery. I have sent a get well card from the Hockey Club
