The RAT PACK – Warringah Rugby’s Volunteers
In 2014 the RATS were given the opportunity to take back Pittwater Rugby Park and engage our local community. This would see Warringah Rugby Club become the heartbeat of Rugby on the Northern Beaches once again. We achieved this due to the tremendous efforts of the amazing Warringah Volunteers.
However we have only made a dent in what we will achieve in 2016. This year we will be more organised, better planned and most of all celebrate the people of the community which give so generously in helping the WRC be all it can be.
The Warringah Volunteers are known as the RAT PACK. This large group of generous humans are the most significant group in our Club. The RAT PACK provides the helping hand to make sure every crucial area on game day is achieved and runs smoothly. But more than this, it brings together our local community and ignites the family that WRC is to so many. The RAT PACK set the atmosphere on game day, from the smiles they give when people walk in, to the service we provide in the canteen and behind the bar.
Looking after the Rat Pack is important to us and will receive:
- 2017 Platinum Membership to the Warringah Rugby Club;
- Rat Pack T-Shirt to be worn on game day;
- WRC Trucker hat for game day;
- Invited the annual volunteers party;
All RAT PACK Volunteer members are encouraged to talk to and welcome anyone who is interested in helping out around the Club.
