We have so much going on Saturday 9th December. Our promotional booth will be at the RA Farmers Market to raise more awareness about the club (from 11am). Not only that, but at midday, we will be launching our new kit and presenting our charity partner, Wooden Spoon, with a cheque from all of the fundraising we have done recently. Our sponsors will also be present, so it is a great opportunity for the club to show off all the fantastic achievements it has for this year. To top it all off, our rugby band Wu-Tag Clan will be performing at the market to keep everybody moving during the day.
We are happy to announce that our favorite MC, Ed de Gaetano will be joining us again for our year end party in the Dial Arch and can’t wait for his banter and making sure the proceeding go smoothly, along with the spirit of Christmas.
Christmas Jumper Parties are old hat! It’s time to do something new! From 7.30pm, we will be holding an Ugly Sock Party at the pub. As well as coming in your funky Christmas socks, you bring another pair stuffed with your unmarked quirky Christmas gift, and tied up with a bow!
We will be following last year’s Kris Kringle principle (https://royalarsenalblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/17/royal-arsenal-rugby-year-end-xmas-party-let-the-games-begin/), but rather than wrapping your present this year, just stuff them into funny socks, please remove all the shopping tags from them first. It should be no more than £10 in value. Tie your socks together with your prettiest Christmas ribbon and you’re ready to go. The uglier the socks, the better, just make sure they’re Christmassy! There are lots of places to find Christmas socks. Have fun making a new tradition!
Don’t be late, as early comers will receive a welcome drink.
2017 has been an amazing year for the club, and we look forward to celebrating it with you on Saturday.
