150th Celebrations: Queen's Birthday 2020

Event cancelled

150 NRFC logoB cancelled

At the last planning meeting (16 March 2020) the committee made the difficult decision to cancel the Nelson Rugby Football Club 150th celebrations at Queen's Birthday due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We will reassess the situation at the end of June and, if possible look at rescheduling the event later in the year.

Currently all events with more than 500 participants are banned by the New Zealand Government. This number is likely to be lowered as guidelines are revised to help fight the corona virus with Prime Minister Jacinda Adern signaling there would be additional announcements on mass gatherings in the coming days.

The committee felt that we had a responsibility to our members around their health and safety and we are aware that the pandemic may have far reaching effects on the club - not only the 150th - and that we need to manage our finances wisely.
