Gibbes, White guests at TAC rugby din­ner

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

Waikato ITM Cup rugby coaches Jono Gibbes and Nathan White will be guests speak­ers at Te Awa­mutu Col­lege Rugby Club fundrais­ing din­ner on Fri­day, Septem­ber 14.

Tick­ets are avail­able now from Te Awa­mutu Col­lege Stu­dent Cen­tre at a cost of $75.

This in­cludes din­ner and a drink on ar­rival, with a full bar avail­able all night.

The TAC Rugby Club has re-in­tro­duced their BiAn­nual Fundrais­ing Din­ner for 2018.

This year the club was able to call upon a num­ber of TAC Old Boys to be the guest speak­ers for the night.

Gibbes and White are for­mer 1st 15 mem­bers who have now pro­gressed through their ca­reers to the point that they now coach the Waikato side.

Lo­cal lad James McOnie, from The Crowd Goes Wild, has also of­fered his ser­vices as MC and in­ter­viewer/ auc­tion­eer for the evening, and should bring a bit of hu­mour to the evening.

An auc­tion of rugby mem­o­ra­bilia and associated items, in­clud­ing a framed TAC rugby jersey signed by the three All Black Bar­rett broth­ers will com­plete the evening.

The TAC Rugby com­mit­tee has a two-year plan to have the Club as a fee-free sport. This will ul­ti­mately al­low all kids to play the game, ir­re­spec­tive of their fi­nan­cial back­ground.

They also hope to of­fer full play­ing kits for each player and cre­ate an out­grown boot col­lec­tion to al­low any player to have boots, as they say each player needs to feel proud to wear the blue and white stripes, and put their best boot for­ward each time they take the field.

Get along and sup­port the lo­cal Col­lege.

Date: Fri­day, Septem­ber 14. Lo­ca­tion: TA Sports Club. Tim­ings: 6pm doors open. 6.30pm seated for din­ner. Dress: Tidy ca­sual.
