A surge in memberships over the past couple of weeks has pushed CORE past the halfway point in its drive for 100 Voting Members. 63 rugby enthusiasts have paid the fees to become Voting Members in 2019. CORE's goal is to have 100 Voting Members in this year. 470 non-voting CORE members receive its newsletter during the active playing season.
Voting memberships are $75/year. $35 of that membership goes toward financial aid to youth rugby players. The remaining $40 gets the Voting Member a meal at the CORE Annual General Meeting.
"If we can achieve our 100 Voting Member goal, we'll have $3,500 to support local youth players who cannot afford to play our game," said Doug Manning, CORE President. "Our demand for support each year is growing, as more players discover this supportive gift from our membership."
The membership drive continues to the end of April.
