VIKINGS VOLUME - Issue No. 115 - 11/04/2011
Welcome everyone to our first newsletter of the season. A really big welcome though to all those people that have been able to come back to Shirley especially after the two devastating earthquakes in September and February. It will be a challenging season for Christchurch Rugby as a whole but we are looking forward to getting out there and making it all happen. We have teams in all grades this year which is fantastic. So as far as a Club is concerned we are looking strong in numbers and hope to keep it that way.
So we wish to thank all the players, parents, volunteers, supporters and all members of the Shirley Club for being a part of our "East Side" family this season. So lets get out there and enjoy it!
Club Day this season is set for 28th May 2011

Sister Mary Katherine entered the Monastery of Silence.
The Priest said, 'Sister, this is a silent monastery. You are welcome here as long as you like, but you may not speak until I direct you to do so.'
Sister Mary Katherine lived in the monastery for 5 years before the Priest said to her, 'Sister Mary Katherine, you have been here for 5 years. You can speak two words.'
Sister Mary Katherine said, 'Hard bed.'
'I'm sorry to hear that,' the Priest said, 'We will get you a better bed.'
After another 5 years, Sister Mary Katherine was called by the Priest. 'You may say another two words, Sister Mary Katherine.
'Cold food,' said Sister Mary Katherine, and the Priest assured her that the food would be better in the future.
On her 15th anniversary at the monastery, the Priest again called Sister Mary Katherine into his office. 'You may say two words today.'
'I quit,' said Sister Mary Katherine .
'It's probably best', said the Priest, 'You've done nothing at all but moan since you've been here.'
