Welcome to the 19th season of the ACT Veterans Rugby club! The 2013 fixtures list is now on the website and we have taken a slightly different approach this year, with the 'ACT Vets Game Day'. The games on these days will usually be a regular intra-club match between the 'reds' and the 'blues and there will also be some of these days allocated to the charity matches to be confirmed with a range of teams. There will be a game on each of those days so that you can plan your family commitments accordingly
The Fools Day carnival was held on Saturday 23 March with Jindabyne Sore Boars, Hall Bushedrangers, Bega Valley Blue Veins, Wollongong Vikings Longhorns, Thorheads and ACSC joining the Vets for a great day of rugby and fraternity. The head of Army Rugby MAJGEN John Caligari presented the Cosgrove Shield to the Longhorns.
We were fortunate enough to have a professional photographer at the Fools Day carnival. Thanks to Michael Thompson Photography for the excellent photos. Players can view the album at Michael's website and order photos if they want a copy.
Training has recommenced for the season under the watchful eye of our 'supercoach' Gary Kinnane. The training sessions this year will feature the addition of tackle bags and contact shields for added excitement! Everyone is welcome to come along to the training sessions, which are every Wednesday evening at Kapyong Field, RMC (across the road from Portsea Oval) starting at 6pm.
The next game is a regular intra-club match between the 'red jerseys' and 'blue jerseys' on Sunday 26 May at Portsea Oval. The following game is against the Box Hill Unquenchables on Saturday 8 June at Portsea Oval. Kick-off for both games will be at the usual time of 2pm.
