Festival of Rugby – March 2020
A Festival of Rugby had been planned for the Mini Section in March 2019. Unfortunately, due to declining wintry weather the Festival, regrettably, had to be cancelled. The safety and welfare of the young players has to be at the forefront of any judgement call as to whether or not cancellation is necessary.
The Festival is a new tournament being hosted at Dumfries Rugby Club. Inviting teams from the larger Clubs who have sufficient numbers to field full teams at each age category (P4-7). This will create an exciting, competitive and fair competition that will attract the bigger Clubs year on year.
A new event required new trophies. We appealed to the parents of our Mini Section for Cup Sponsors and are very pleased to announce that 4 shiny new trophies have been purchased and are waiting to be presented to the winning teams next season. The Club are extremely grateful and would like to thank the 4 Cup Sponsors for their support and generosity.
Unfortunately, it was not possible to re-schedule the Festival that was cancelled. However, the date has been set for next season and on Sunday, 29th March 2020, Park Farm will welcome several hundred young players with their coaches and parents. Already many Clubs have confirmed their attendance; Ayr, Cumnock, East Kilbride, Dalziel, Ardrossan, Marr and Cambuslang.
Date set, teams organised, trophies ready……now all we need is the weather to be on our side.
