Dear Parent / Guardian

Re: Sponsorship of Ballymoney Mini Rugby

We are proud to announce that Biesty’s Ballymoney will continue to be the main Sponsor for Ballymoney Mini Rugby until at least 2017. We have been the main sponsor for the last 4 years and are delighted with our close affiliation with Ballymoney Rugby.

On 6th September there will be a Family Fun Day at the Rugby Club, Biesty’s will sponsor goody bags for all the children.

As a thank you to all the parents and Mini Rugby Players for supporting Biesty’s Ballymoney, we are giving you back some treats every match / training day. Simply call into the shop on a Saturday that there is training or a match with your child wearing the Ballymoney Mini Rugby Jersey/Hoodie and both will get one of the following;

Whipped Ice Cream Cone, Hot Chocolate, Coffee, Tea (One per child and one per parent)

On Saturday 13th December 2014 there will be a Rugby Day at Biesty’s, all staff will dress in the Ballymoney Rugby strip, there will be activities organised, Hot dogs etc.. Santa will make an appearance and hopefully an Ulster Rugby Player will be there too. Mini Rugby will do a door collection also that day.

We will be donating prizes to children selected by the coaches throughout the season, as well as a signed Ulster Rugby Jersey for fund raising.

We have many more ideas on how to build on our closer relationship with Ballymoney Mini Rugby and look forward to giving you a free Cappuccino or Hot Chocolate on a cold Saturday morning!

Thank you again for your support.

Yours sincerely,

Glenn & Angela Biesty

Mini rugby meets Arcadia Bathing Club

image image imageThis morning our very own P6 coach John Simpson carried out an impromptu mini rugby coaching session during the weekly Sunday morning meet of the ABC club. The kids were given a high quality demonstration in the art of  the back line loop by John who then finished the move with an expertly taken try in the corner. There were worried glances from onlookers expecting to hear the hamstring “twang” but the icy waters ensured no injury occurred. Any other children who wish to avail of such expert coaching please turn up on the 30th Aug for our first training session.

Fun day

Our annual fun day will be held on Saturday 6th September from 9-45 until 12noon. As usual there will be a range of bouncy castles for the kids to enjoy after training as well as the usual food and drinks. Everyone is welcome at this family event
