Tukapa faithful we need you to support our Sponsors

Hey Guys, I hope everyone is finding enough things to do without Sport and not much else on TV. Personally, I have got back into my home butchery making Sausages and Salami, and dinners in our household have got a lot better due to having all day to prepare. But all in all, my isolation is not going too bad with the highlight being the Zoom beer with the Tukapa crew on a Friday night at 4pm.
This brings me to my 1st topic - ways we can support the people that help Tukapa. Let’s ensure we support our sponsors as they have supported us. They need us right now, and we can do our bit for them in these unprecedented times.
Last Friday while having a beer on Zoom with the crew the topic of helping our sponsors during this challenging was discussed, and a concerted effort from the Tukapa faithful will enhance our ability to retain the support from our sponsors into the future. One of our biggest and longest standing Sponsors is Lion Breweries, and we can all support them when you, or your designated shopper, go to the Supermarket make sure you are buying Lion Product. I know some of our younger generation get confused about what is a Lion product………. As a guide if we sell it at Tukapa it is all good, Lion Brown is Lion - Double Brown is NOT. 

Check out all our sponsors below and help us support them. 

To mention just a few that we can support during the Lock down:
Lion Nathan        -        Buy their product from the Supermarket 
Egmont Seeds      -       Shop online for all your seeds 
NP Physiotherapy   -     Are still doing Zoom consults and helping you through recovery 
Riddlez Interactive   -   Get that Web site updated or adverts out on Social media 
Baker Tilly Staples   -    These guys are still helping a number of Businesses though this time 
Liquorland, Fitzroy  -    Amy is now doing home deliveries, Check out Liquorland on Facebook 

We would love to see some photos of you and your bubble supporting our Sponsors where you can, lets see who can be the most creative, we will even reward the best with a $50 bar voucher to enjoy when we are back up and running. Post your photos to our Facebook page, (or send to me) info@tukapa.co.nz have a bit of fun, and show our sponsors how much they mean to us.

TRFU Chairmans Meeting 

Last Wednesday we had our 1st Zoom Chairmans meeting with all clubs attending online. the main points of this meeting was all clubs still want to see rugby this year and we all agreed that more than likey we are looking at a one round Comp with semi and finals to follow. As to when this will start we would hope to know this in the next couple of weeks. With alot of the other clubs being rural there is concern with rugby clashing with the calving season. 
NZR are in talks with the government and are hoping to update all unions on Friday with more information. Then TRFU and chairman are looking at another Zoom meeting on Wednesday.
