150th Celebrations 

In 2020 the Wellington Rugby Football Club will turn 150 years old and as we are the oldest continually running rugby club in New Zealand, we want to make these celebrations something to remember

The Weekend

Date: 24th-27th of April 2020
Who: All members, current and past, friends and family

Be a part of history!

It is still a long way out but we have already started planning these celebrations for our friends and family and would like as many present and past Axemen to be involved.

There is a lot going on over the weekend with occasions for everyone. Attend some or all events, everyone is very welcome. Check the suggested timetable to see what you'd like to participate in.

Help us build the database

In the recent past the club has done a great job at growing the database to include many old players, members, friends and family. This is an on-going process and we want to make sure everyone knows about the big celebration so they have the option to attend.

If you know anyone who may not be on our mailing list who may like to attend the celebrations, let us know. Email Scott Fuller at scottf@dbc.co.nz.

Want to help?

With the event just over 3 years away, we are still in the planning phase of the event. We have a Committee working on these plans at present but now, in the lead up to the event and at the event itself, we will need support to make the weekend run as smoothly as possible. As it always is around the club people will step up to help but if you would like to make it known that you would like to lend a hand now, contact Scott Fuller at scottf@dbc.co.nz.
