Farewell to Fr Peter Monaghan

Given Fr Peter Monaghan is leaving Salesian College at the end of the year we have arranged for a farewell function to be held at the clubrooms on Friday the 18th of November from 7.00pm.

This is intended not just as a farewell but as an expression of thanks to Peter for his magnificent contribution over a long period of time.(Note,he will be coming back for our President XI vs Rector’s XI in February next year).We will be spreading the news to all the sporting clubs that represent Rupertswood for anyone involved that would like to attend.This will be a very casual night with a free barbecue(sausage sizzle)and drinks at bar prices.

Hopefully as many can attend as possible understanding this is a difficult time of year leading into Christmas etc.

Coach Tristram Douglas settles in well as Rupertswood CC 2011/2012 training is off to a flyer!

Rupertswood Cricket Club Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday training sessions have seen big numbers down at the beautiful Rupo Ground complex, and Tristram has already fitted in well, bringing along a host of intensive and effective activities to improve not only our cricket skills, but our general approach to fitness also. Congratulations to all for their dedication and hard work before the season begins. Let’s keep it up!
