Bayside Fiji Blonde 7s 2018 – What a summer!

This season we entered a total of nine tournaments of which we were winners of six, an amazing result considering Bayside is a club side. Of those nine tournaments, the full Bayside Fiji Blond Sharks team were together as a club side for six events, the Vancouver 7s, Cloverdale Rodeo 7s, CAN/AM 7s, SFU 7s, Bayside 7s and the Langford 7s.
Defcon Fiji Blond played together in a further 3 tournaments, the Calgary Stampede 7s, Brit Lion 7s and the Centre of Gravity 7s in Kelowna and were victorious in all three events. Defcon Fiji Blond carries 5 or 6 Bayside Fijians and have been complimented by players from other clubs.
A total of 22 players from Bayside RFC have represented the club in one or more tournaments and include the following:
Sam Clayton, David Dinbandhu, Andrew O’ Connor, Marika Delai, Peni Rokodiva, Reid Davis, Logan Smith, Livai Navaigo, Sam Knights, Liam Morrison, Conner Dickie, Luke Torroca, Tonner Jackson, Baleigh Grim, Jay Franklin, Gavin Morrison, Josh Arei, Doug Fairbank, Kristian Osing, Darryn Matsee, Jack Knights and Joseph Duikete.
There have been 8 or 9 other players from outside clubs that have played a valuable part with Defcon Fiji Blond and include Asareli Rokotuiwakaya, Jarred Douglas, Joshiah Morra, Issac Vonnani, Darwin Guevara, Tsui Vikilani and Siaki Vikilani.
The club would like to pay special thanks to our coach Sam Knights, Manager Matt Falkner, Director Petaia Usakilakeba, Lee Sullivan for assisting with the Social 7s team and most importantly our sponsors, Bobby Naicker, Randy Horn, Richie Eacret and the Semiahmoo Old Boys RFC. We would not have been able to compete in these events without your valuable support.

CLUBHOUSE UPDATE

Surrey Parks and Recreation Facilities Dept are currently in the process of completing the detailed design of the field house project. A meeting between the Facilities Dept and the Building Dept is scheduled for the week of Aug 22/16 to discuss the application process for building permits. Completion and agreement of the detailed design is expected to be completed prior to submitting building permits for approval. The scope of work and associated building permits being discussed will be for the full completion of the lower level (washrooms and changing rooms) and completion of building envelope only of the upper floor (clubhouse room). Completion of the interior of the upper floor will be left to the responsibility of Bayside as a tenant improvement.

In addition, the P & R Facilities Dept have identified and designated an in-house Construction Manager to oversee the construction of the field house through to completion. This will have a significant positive impact on reducing building costs.

A meeting with the Facilities Dept regarding the building process is hopefully to be arranged for the week of Aug 29/16. At that time, further information will be available regarding obtaining and implementing the use of in-kind donations. We will also have more insight into the building process, and possible timelines for the project.

Donations In Kind
In regards to donations in-kind, Surrey Parks and Recreation Facilities Dept have indicated they wish to capitalize on all opportunities to bring value to the project. At this time they have strongly encouraged Bayside Athletic Association to start taking a hard look at our opportunities for in-kind contributions to the project. A complete set of drawings may be available by the end of Aug/16. As mentioned, Bayside will be asking for more direction and detail on the obtaining and implementation of donations in kind.
Shortly after the release of the completed set of detailed drawings, the P & R Facilities Dept will be requesting Bayside to confirm our in-kind donations and determine which divisions of work will need to be opened to a competitive bidding.
We have had previous donors supporting the project and we will be following up with them to inquire about their current status. In addition to these supporters, there has been significant others offering assistance. I would like to encourage all those in support of the project to give serious consideration to identifying how they or someone they know may be able to provide donations in-kind to the project. Please forward your support or information to myself, Stephen Black at stephenblack60@gmail.com, or Jonathon Boughen at jbghn@yahoo.ca.

We hope to organize a supporters meeting and an open house shortly after the meeting with P & R Facilities Dept during the week of Aug 29/16. We will continue to provide updates as more information is forthcoming.

We would also like to encourage everyone to continue to contact the Mayor and Councillors to keep this project in the forefront.

Patience and Perseverance will pay off!

Stephen “Blackie” Black
