On behalf of the club we would like to send our condolences to the Gates family. Unfortunately, we heard the sad news of Garry Gates passing last Friday morning.

His memorial service will be held this Thursday (15th Dec) at 11am Southern Highlands Wines, Sutton Forest (cnr Oldbury Road and Illawarra Hwy). With drinks afterwards at the Scottish Arms.

Garry was a long serving member of the Club both on the Committee with his wife Jo as well as coaching Blacks teams and Illawarra and Country teams.

The Club encourages all those that can to come and pay their respects to Garry, show their support to the Gates family and say goodbye to a great Clubman.
