On Saturday 23rd of March we have a double-header of events.
The first is Elvis tribute show featuring the fabulous Neil McLaughlin. This is at the British Legion club and tickets priced just £6 are available at the Rugby Shop.
On the same night there is the Past and Present Players/Coaches Association Dinner at the Chequers Hotel. This event is open to all past and present players/coaches (from any Barrow RFC team) and also to supporters of the club who may wish to spend an evening reminiscing. The likes of John Rea, Steve Hogan, Steve Tickle, Ralph McConnell, Les Wall, Les Quirk, Tony Kay and Pat Trainer, to name just a few will be there along with a fair few of the current squad for what promises to be a great night. Many of the past players and their wives/partners who are attending are travelling a fair distance to be there to support the new association. Tickets (£25) for this mixed event can be obtained from Andy Whittle (firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01229 58809) or David Cairns (email@example.com).
The clash of these events was inevitable as the date for the dinner was chosen on a weekend when our first team did not have a match, whilst Neil McLaughlin is doing the Elvis night for free and this was the best date for him. So whether you want a quiet meal and a good rugby craic or want to wear your drain-pipes and let your hair down, one of these events should suit you.
