I would like to update all our members on the current situation regarding “Junior Rugby League Return to Play”.
As is stands, Clubs will be asked by Gold Coast Rugby League in the coming week as to whether they wish to return to play this year or not.
Our Executives and Committee members have been meeting to discuss the clubs stance and after taking into consideration the “Gold Coast Rugby League Return To Play” requirements, the coaches views, safety requirements, impact on the community and a very in-depth cost benefit analysis, I would like to advise that Runaway Bay Juniors are voting IN FAVOUR of returing to play this year and we are hopeful that other clubs will take a similar view.
If training and games do go ahead, there will be very strict protocols that we will all need to adhere to, but I'm certain that we can all come together as a club and a community to strive towards the common goal of getting our kids back onto the field safely and to some form of normality.
While there is still quite an uphill battle ahead of us to try and get the games underway, I along with the other Executives and Committee members, will continue to push forward and break down the barriers placed in front of us to try and get the game we all love underway in 2020.
Finally I would like to take this opportunity to send out a few thank you’s. Firstly, and most importantly, to our amazing members, players and supporters for being so patient during this period of uncertainty.
To our local member David Crisafulli - Broadwater MP for offering his assistance to help us return to the field.
To our fabulous sponsors who continue to support us.
To Runaway Bay Seagulls Seniors' Rugby League Football Club, Runaway Bay Rugby League Old Boys Association, Bay Boys Over 35 and Runaway Bay Leagues Club - Restaurant, Bar & Gaming for all working hand in hand with the Juniors through this tough period.
To the other Club Executives and Committee members for working tirelessly to ensure our clubs sustainability into the coming years.
Further details will be available in the coming week or so.
I hope to see you all very soon! #BAD 🔵🔴⚪️
Regards, Nathan Wydmuch Runaway Bay JRLFC President ...
