Notice of Special General Meeting on Feb 9th

Dear Members of MURFC

Notice is hereby given that a Special General Meeting will be held at 6.30pm on Tuesday February 9th at the Sports Centre, Tin Alley, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, to conduct one item of Special Business.

Explanation: The Committee is recommending that we change the Club’s financial year from January/December to November/October.

This recommendation is because we wish to continue the practice of holding the AGM in the November time-frame. The law says we must hold the AGM within 5 months of the end of the club’s financial year – which would currently mean holding it between January and May.

If we change to a November/October Financial Year, we can conclude the winter rugby activities within the financial year, yet still hold the AGM in the 5 months commencing November. This requires approval by a special general meeting of the members.

Special Business

Moved: Rick Gerner (Treasurer)
Seconded: Paul Webster (President)

That the third definition in Item 2.1 of the Constitution be altered from “financial year means the year ending 31 December” to “financial year means the year ending 31 October”

Preseason Training

2016 Preseason Training

Lock it in your calendar…2016 MURFC preseason training will commence at 6.30pm on Tuesday January 12th at the Melbourne University Athletics Club Track on the Parkville campus.

Preseason Training Venue







The best way to get to training is to park near the University or use public transport, enter the grounds along Tin Alley (aligns with Elgin Street, Carlton) until you reach the University Sports Centre about midway along Tin Alley. From there, you will find the athletics track behind the Sports Centre.

Be sure to bring a drink bottle, hat, togs & towel but runners only…no boots.
