Rugby Club bits and bobs

There are a few things going on with the MRFC that I thought I'd share:

First up is the annual touch rugby World Cup tournament that is being held this year on Friday 24th April from 10am at the Bousher Club (just behind Muscat Private Hospital). The way it works is you either join a team (you can email if you'd like to play and don't have a team - they can place you) or you register a team (made up of 12 players, men, women & kids). There will be a BBQ available and all are welcome to come and join in on the fun. Registration closes on the Wednesday before the event, 22nd April, and registration is RO 5 per player, or RO 60 per team if you want to sponsor a team. Its a great day out and is fun for all the family, even those 4-legged members of the family some of you have,

Next up is the 2015 MRFC Oval Ball. At RO 40 (for members, or RO 45 if you're not a member) it has got to be the best priced 4-course meal and open bar Ball of the year. Thursday May 21st at the Afrah ballroom in the Grand Hyatt, it's a great ball and all are welcome to join in with the end-of-season festivities. You can check out the facebook event page or email for more information and tickets/table bookings.

And finally.... the summer memberships to MRFC are coming! If you'd like to join up now, its RO 35 to become a member of MRFC until August 31st, 2015. If you want to wait until June 1st, you can get a 3 month membership to MRFC for RO 28. So RO 35 now (or RO 70 for a family), or RO 28 in June (or RO 55 for a family).
