What an extraordinary weekend at Rupo. Our clubrooms were transformed into the Rupertswood Cricket Club “Ladies Pavilion” for 65 girls to enjoy High Tea and be waited on by the boys. The feedback has been quite amazing,
“Better than the big city High Teas! Can I book for next year so I dont miss out?”
“Best Rupo function we’ve ever been to! We laughed, we cried and we laughed again! The food and the organisation…. magnificent”
“Loved the games and raffles, the guest speaker was wonderful and I never thought that room could be so classy. Thank you Rupo for a fantastic day!”
” The menu and the food were so nice!…we loved the day, please do it again next year!”
” Everything was just so perfect, it did Rupertswood very, very proud……Congratulations”
The above not only speaks volumes as to where we are as a club at present but the goodwill generated is priceless. Particularly for the ladies, Rupo is perhaps no longer a place to avoid.
The weekend started off well with all junior players sporting pink ribbons and grips and continued into the afternoon when the seniors ‘pinked up’ for the round. Big thanks to the junior coaches and to all the senior captains for ensuring everyone got into the spirit of the day.
The bar was then raised a few notches when 65 ladies descended on the rejuvenated rooms for what turned out to be a great afternoon.
All in all a huge day for our club supporting the continuance of the McGrath Foundations’ great work. Final figures not available yet but we can report that it will be around twice our initial target!
