Help wanted next season

There is a level of "stuff" involved with the girls section that is out of all proportion to any other age group at the club because we play teams no-one else plays, in competitions no-one else enters, and under a governing body that is not the RFU. And next season it would help cover for the loss of Joe and Rachel if I had a few volunteers to help with it all.

In particular:

Fixtures secretary. Could be a U18 player or parent this one. At the moment the club drafts this up to September, after which I take over. While it is good that the club are involved the girls fixtures are so radically different to everyone else's that if possible I think we should take this back "in house". The RFUW will be issuing a draft calendar with all the county and regional dates shortly, after which its a question of contacting clubs and filling in the gaps.

Basically the requirements are email, a phone, and a good deal of patience! You will need to liaise with club about home games, but as we always play in the afternoon this will rarely be a problem.

Treasurer/fund raiser. Probably a parent this one. We do not have our own funds (tours aside), but there are any number of grants out there that we could/should be applying for. If you enjoying filling in forms and have a certain degree of financial nous (ie. can add up) we really could do with your help. Again a degree of liaison with the wider club would help, but thus far the wider club has shown little interest in applying for these grants so most of the time its a question of our going it alone - and in many cases they are grants that only apply to girls as you are a "priority" group.

Team "rep". I really could do with someone to speak for each of the two teams - someone who could attend the occasional club or even county meetings so that I am not the lone voice for the girls/Letchworth at these affairs, someone speak up for their team and fight its corner. Could be a parent, could be (for the U18s) a player.

Anyone interested?
