We are looking for help from the entire club this weekend, July 18 & 19, 2015, 10:00am start.  In order to be organized and prepared for the upcoming Mini, Junior, Senior, and Over 40 2015/16 seasons, we are cleaning out and reorganizing the “Green Bin” at the south end of our home field at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Equipment Manager, Gregg Dunning, is leading the way in getting prepared for the 2015/16 season.

In addition to this reorganization, we are collecting all Bayside merchandise, equipment, and uniforms for inventory. If you have been holding onto any Bayside merchandise please bring it to the “Green Bin” on July 18 or 19/15.

Please give serious consideration to assisting with this large project.  “Many hands make light work.”  Your assistance in these two activities is very much appreciated.


The City of Surrey has identified an appropriate architect, Thinkspace Architecture, for the Bayside Athletic Association Field House. Thinkspace Architecture also has a team of sub-consultants available to work on the project. Thinkspace Architecture is now in the process of drafting the detailed design (blueprints) of the field house. The City’s Planning and Development Manger has explained the construction of the field house is expected to begin in September 2015 and is expected to be completed in April 2016. A development and planning sign should be installed at the construction site any day.

I have requested the City of Surrey Planning and Development Manager and Thinkspace Architecture meet with the Bayside Athletic Association members and supporters. An information meeting to review the construction process has been scheduled for 6:00pm July 6, 2015 at the Rotary Field House in South Surrey Athletic Park. If you have ever inquired about the status of the Bayside Athletic Association Field House it is highly recommended that you attend this meeting. Please notify and ensure any supporters of our home and community project attend.


We are hosting a 16 club  Mini Rugby Jamboree this Sunday April 19th

Kick off 10:00         Ending at 11:30

As we all know these events take a number of people doing small jobs to make it happen. We are looking for helpers from all teams where possible. We do have parent involvement but would be great to have the other groups along to help out and be involved if possible. Please pass along to your groups and let me know who is able to help in these specific areas.
1 – Field Set-Up – 8:30-9:30 (Laying out field cones, placing field signs, set up tent, tables & BBQ)
2 – First Aid Station – 10-11:30 – Certified First Aid Attendants – Available to help out if needed / called

4 – Field Take Down – 11:30 – 12:00- Collect the field cones, signs, pack up tent, tables and BBQ and quick garbage sweep
