just an update of a few things as we reach week 4 of our competition.
Having teams in proper uniforms is essential to playing and refereeing touch. Teams are reminded of our uniform policy. From next week will start penalizing teams tries for players out of uniform. More info is available here: https://princesparktouch.com/faq/
At RPT we love our photo’s so you will see me wandering around the grounds, all photos team photos are published to the website and then automatically copied across to the facebook page so go there there, like Royal Park Touch and tag away!
I still have a few that I’d like to place so if you need some extra players please let me know.
We have secured storage so this week should signal the return of the RPT BBQ, come and get yourself a snag.
As you probably know due to the redevelopment work at Princes Park we have returned to Royal Park itself. This was has created a number of changes and challenges. Namely:
- As I indicated last week the fields as marked are shorter and narrower than regulations. I informed the council and chased them up today. Hopefully they can fix this soon but councils move slowly. In the mean time we will try to work around it by refereeing the game as open as we can.
- As we have moved location we have signed up a new pub sponsor (the Charles Weston hotel). We loved our old sponsor the Great Northern but we are now a fair distance from them. It is early days in the season though so we welcome feedback on whether we should stay with the new pub, look for another pub in Brunswick, or head back to the GNH (despite the extra distance)?
some other things that are important are:
Players are reminded to sign on. This covers you for insurance and qualifies players for finals
This season in order to complete the registration of each player in our competition we require their full name, a unique email address, date of birth, and their suburb. Most captains have included this info for their teams in the rego form. But if anything was lacking our secretary/treasurer Brad Chant will be in touch to make sure each captain has sent through a full team list.
