This Sunday will be USRC Tiger Minis most important Sunday of the year (well, apart from that thing in late March perhaps).
This years Tigerfest will be massive, featuring 21 rugby clubs, 300 teams and a total of over 3,400 players.
Big thanks to those who helped setting up this mega-massive-monstrous event and to all who have volunteered as pitch marshals.
Please remember that this is our clubs event, widely considered the best party in town.
It is imperative that everyone pitches in to make the festival a success. Please assist our coaches and pitch marshals whenever needed, fix pitch markings if they get broken, or help out at the cake stall or info centre for a couple of hours.
With close to 10,000 people descending on Kings Park, I would ask that all parents take responsibility for their own child on the day and ensure that they are ready at the allocated pitch at least 10 minutes before they are due to play each game.
I urge all you ladies out there to please donate something for our cake sale at the festival. This has traditionally been a nice income source for us and helps offset some of the cost of the festival. Please bring along some cakes, biscuits or other such food for sale on the day. The cake stall will be located in front of the clubhouse.
There will be no parking on the day at King's Park and traffic will be heavy. Please consider using public transport. If you get there by taxi please alight on Wylie Road as u-turning at the entrance gates creates major problems.
