MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR 2016/17 SEASON

 

I am writing to invite you to renew your membership for the coming season and, if you are not already an Annual Patron or Life Patron, to consider becoming one.

We have been working hard to provide improved facilities for members, the most recent being the refurbishment of the upstairs bar at the Blackmore. This is fresh and contemporary and I am sure you will enjoy the new surroundings. The Pavilion at Sidford is a popular facility locally, as well as essential asset for the club, the junior section particularly and is available for hire.

The contract for the refurbishment of the main pitches and training area at Sidford is complete and we will be bringing them into use as soon as they are settled and mature. The first is expected to be in commission before Christmas.

We have secured the services for a second season of our first class coach, Mark Beavis, who has retained his support team, who will ensure the conditioning and well being of players. We want to keep them safe to play, week in week out.

The cost of running the club means that subscriptions have had to rise slightly this year. The cost of running the club will exceed £100,000 again this year. We will continue to play in the Western Counties West league after securing a mid table position last year. Your support as a member will enable us to provide the best support for players, both senior and junior, but we are working hard to increase revenue through sponsorship and organising fundraising activity.

I would like to remind you of the advantages of being a member.

All members benefit from :-

         Cheaper ground entry

          Ability to purchase a season ticket

          Discounted bar prices

          Ability to apply for International tickets

          Everys Solicitors are offer members 10% discount on services 

          (subject to terms & conditions)

          Discounted hire of club facilities

In addition, Annual Patrons are entitled to attend 3 lunches at key league games each year with the option of inviting a guest. Life Patrons have free entry to all games and access to the 3 Patrons lunches a year (again with the opportunity to invite a guest.)

Your Board believes that the options and rates attached compare well with other Devon Rugby Clubs and local sports clubs.

For the forthcoming season the following will apply:

Ground entry

         For adults will be £3 for members and £5 for non members.

         For juniors will be £1 for members and £1.50 for non members.

         Will be charged for second team and colts matches

         Season ticket- this is an optional purchase providing free ground entry,

 

Season Tickets are perfect for regular supporters. It can be purchased at the same time as renewing your subscription. To be fair to all of our members, gate volunteers and bar staff, the discounts and subsidised entry can only be gained by producing your membership card.

The more members the club has the stronger it can be. Please encourage any regular supporters that you know to join. Application forms will be available at the gate on match days or from the web site.

We are an amateur club run by and for its members and players. We always welcome offers of help and support and if you have a skill or some time (or both) that you think will benefit the club please do let us know.

I look forward to enjoying your company in the coming season and thank you in anticipation for your continued support.

Lester Wilmington 

Chairman
