Welcome to Red Sox  ~  We Have a Deam  ~  Don't You Forget It !

Greetings Club Members

Congratulations to our Mens 1st Football team on their resuming their winning ways last Saturday over Wanganui Athletic. They can't afford any more losses though as it is very tight at the top of their league table. Our Premier 1 Netball Team have maintained their mid table position but will also be nervous as they have teams close by on similar points. So the pressure is on at the crunch part of the season for both teams. We wish them well !!

Interest in the Club Old Timers Day we have planned for Saturday 4 August is coming from far and wide and we are hearing from people who have not been involved for many years - great stuff. This event represents a further evolution in the development of our Club and an opportunity to reminisce and reacquaint !

our club events calendar is stacked with a wide range of events over the next few weeks so make sure you and your team mates, family, friends and colleagues take full advantage of the clubrooms environment and its facilities. Its an old cliche but true - if you don't use it you could lose it. Don't wait for someone else - you make the effort to come down !!

2012 Air Guitar Champs

You may recall we announced in a previous Newsletter that Scotty Outtrim (from the Rangers football team) was the winner of the 2012 Air Guitar Champs

Airing for the 1st time on Saturday Night at the Clubrooms will be video footage of his rendition of 'November Rain' which won him the title !

In the video we can also see the antics of his supporters and others in the crowd 'having a go'

Check it out on our TVs this Saturday !! 


Red Sox Manawatu in recent years has amalgamated with the Olympic netball club and the Manawatu AFC football club, and as such has inherited their history and heritage. As such, most of go the football clubs that once existed in the Manawatu region are part of the Red Sox Family Tree - click here for details

Following the example of many local rugby clubs, its time for your Club to celebrate this history, to provide an opportunity to rekindle some memories and to meet old friends. All interested persons are invited to attend the inaugural 'Old Timers Day' on Saturday 4 August 2012 at the Red Sox Manawatu Clubrooms.

If you know of anyone who would be interested in attending this inaugural event, please forward this email to them

Funny But True !:

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read:

Dear God,
I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension payment. Friday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with, have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me ?

The postal worker was touched.. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few dollars.By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96, which they put into an envelope and sent to the woman. The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends.

Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the same old lady to God.
All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened. It read:

Dear God,
How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me ?
Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift. By the way, there was $4 missing. I think it might have been those bastards at the post office again!!
