Kevin Barry

We are very sad to advise the sudden and unexpected death of Kevin Barry.
Kevin had been a member since 1966 and made a huge contribution to the club as a President, committee member and member. He was an All Black and a great person.
His funeral is on Friday August 22 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Takapuna at 11.00am.
More information will be included in Campbell Burnes’ November club newsletter.

Australia v All Blacks test: Saturday August 23 at 7.35pm

If you are coming to the test on Saturday, we hope you will have time to visit the clubrooms, hopefully before and after the game.
All financial members have been issued with members cards and a visitor card and these should be shown to Eden Park security staff to gain entry to the club.
If you need additional visitor cards, please come up to the club to get the extra cards, return to your guests, show security staff the extra cards and bring your visitors up to the club.
Please remember to return your cards before you leave the club at the end of the game.
Enjoy the game and ‘Go the All Blacks.’
