This Saturday will see our first match in our new digs in Colwood! The men host JBAA in an exhibition game, starting at 1pm. The game is on Field #1 behind the Juan de Fuca Rec Centre, right next to the clubhouse. You can enjoy a beer from the balcony while you watch! The women have their first regular season match, traveling Saturday to Duncan.
Next Saturday, the 19th, will be a huge day for the club. We will be hosting CW in a triple header (men’s 1sts and Premier, and women).
The Velox Legacy Fund has four new contributors: Cam Neish, Dave Galbraith, John MacMillan and Craig White. What’s the Legacy Fund? Follow the link or read below!
With the move to the Westshore we are moving to a different era where we will no longer have significant bar revenue. Please help us build an endowment fund that will support the growth of the club for generations to come. All donations are tax deductible and can be made simply by providing your credit card information through the Canadian Rugby Foundation website and direct donations to the “Westshore VV” fund through the “donate now” button on the main page.
We have a goal of 50 donors donating 20 a month or 240 a year tax deductible. Whether retired, a student or working we believe this is an affordable amount. Please join the Legacy club.

I’ve been counting up ballots, and the voting for some of the positions is certainly getting interesting! Take eightman, with three candidates in a tight race: Dave Defrane, Ray Young and Tim Sinclair. Who would you vote for? One of these three, or our other candidate Craig Wightman?
There is still time to sign up:
Here is how it works. You send payment to me via Paypal ($20 using a Paypal account, or credit card), and I will email you a pdf with profiles for all of the nominees. After reading through, you email back your votes. In the fall, you will be able to pick up your official printed copy that includes all of the results (or, for $5 more we can mail it to you wherever you are in the world).
Those who have purchased a ballot for the Velox Valhallian All-Time All-Stars are reminded to submit their votes soon for counting. If you purchased a hard copy at the club, you can always submit your choices directly to me by email.
