A great night of Cas memories.
The CTSC Heritage night took place last night at the WSTS Suite, Steve Ball from the Tigers Trust gave an update of the drop in meeting which took place earlier in the evening. A fantastic initial sign up of 25 volunteers to help with the Tigers heritage project, a great start and more details will follow.
Next to address the meeting was Chris Rostron from RL Cares, Chris described the work RL Cares does including grants, welfare, heritage and the benevolent fund. If you are interested in the history of the game then you are invited to visit Heritage Quay at Huddersfield University, www.heritagequay.org. The Rugby League Archive is now catalogued and is now fully accessible, special events are also run related to the great game.
Chris also mentioned that a bid for a national museum for Rugby League is now under way, we want to help and we are sure that Castleford Rugby League will feature strongly.
Then it was the audiences turn to talk about items that they had brought along, books, photos, programmes, memories of first games, finals, incidents, personal items special to themselves. All the stories will I'm sure be recorded and catalogued for the heritage project so others can share the special memories and what it means to be a supporter.
It was also great to see Cas legend Dennis Hartley at the event and the slide show that was run I'm sure brought back many happy memories.
Lastly I would like to thank Steve Ball and Chris Rostron for attending.
Diane Howard for allowing us to share her fantastic photos and to everyone who attended, thanks for sharing the memories.
We raised £40 on the night.
Our next event is the Player of the year awards night, date and venue to be confirmed.
