Piranhas News – Hay Lodge saw the return of Peebles Piranhas after a well-earned summer break. And we're back there this Sunday from 10am. A few things to look out for. Registration and membership needs to be completed. Online links on the email and Facebook, and any paper forms can be got from your coach. Watch out too for upcoming tournaments in September and October. Coaches will be looking for your availability. All the info you need is in our Handbook, available on the email and Facebook. Finally, if you think that Piranhas and Rugby might be worth a try, but you’re not sure, then just head down on Sunday and grab a coach for a chat. They'll see you right.
Membership – members should note that subscriptions are now due – details of membership categories, payment amounts and methods are available via the club website and also on the poster at the head of the close in the Eastgate. Forms can also be had at the bar in the clubrooms where payments can also be made.
