New refsoc available
Adam Morrison has produced an end of season edition of the RefSoc mag. Many of you will receive this direct to your inbox but incase you don't or you have deleted the link you can see a copy if you follow the link Latest RefSoc Mag. It is well worth a look.
The referee appointments for April are now available. As you can see there is not a great deal of fixtures so RPC have done their best to share out what there is.
There will be a few cup Finals to add when information is confirmed. The 2nd Team cup final was on Saturday and no suprise Blaydon beat Ryton. The 3rd Team Cup Final is on the 11th and the 4th Team on the 18th Teams of 3 have been appointed to these.In May some refs have already volunteered for the Darlington Festival - a few more Volunteers are still required. The week after (11th) there is another Charity festival (Henry Vaulks Memorial Tournament) for senior sides also to be held at Darlington RFC. Details will be circulated as sooon as I receive them. Your support would again be much appreciated and it is in a very good cause.
International Rugby in the North East
The prices are very cheap for international rugby with the single ticket covering both games being £10 for an adult and £5 for u16s so take advantage of this fantastic value with much more on offer See flyer in detail
It would be fantastic if the North could show their support for international Rugby ahead of the world cup by filling the Northern Arena

March referee Appointments
This year two Durham refs were invited to attend this gathering and David Hines and Phil Walton (sorry for previous error!) joined the group and had a great time although word has come back that any refs attending any future events may need to get in some early drinking practice.
Would Durham refs be interested in a similar kind of event?
January's Training meeting
January 2015 Grading
There were no real surprises in the changes made. Several referees were promoted and a small number were told that they would receive a game at the level above their current grading before the end of the season in order to assess their abilities at that level.
Congratulations to those that did gain promotion and good luck to those that are due to take games at the next level.
