Presidents Report Ensure Assignr availability is updated on Mondays & email appropriate referee manager if any changes. Members that have not paid their membership by 2 November 2013 forfeit their rights to HKSRFUR 7s tickets & appointments to 7s duties. Weekly Report is available weekly on the website. Members with Assignr Accounts receive push email advising of posting. Referee abuse is raised with the HKRU to manage. Members are expected to document facts & report them to WN. Pitch encroachment is raised with the HKRU (Nigel Francis is leading discussions at the HKRU board & Colts meetings). Bottom line is that referees will need to lead the management of the matter along with the Club officials & coaches as appropriate (stop the game with time still running & manage it until resolved before proceeding with game if necessary). Congratulations to Matt Roden who has been confirmed as new Referee Manager responsible for League & Youth. BF continues responsibility for Prem grade & PK for Minis. Treasurer’s Report Christmas party is scheduled for 18 Dec 2013 at the POC. 7s ticket information expected within next 4 weeks. Price expected to remain the same as last year.
