“Renewal”, the key word during the GA of the Châtenoy Rugby Club on Friday July 8.

The Châtenoy club, the players have greatly gained from the revival of the club and its growth.

A general assembly to make many presidents of associations dream, indeed the meeting room of the club was well filled with an impressive number of players, supervisors, parents of children from the rugby school. A first for this club whose leaders are doing everything to continue the revival of rugby in Châtenoy.

It’s impressive this world at an GA, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen that Said Henri Lombard, sports assistant present at this meeting. Jean-M. De Micheli president of the WHO, Xavier Merle President of the CODEP, Philippe Léger elected from the league and representing the president Jean-François Contant (excused) were also present at this GA.

Some important subjects in the statutes have been modified to provide more guarantees to the club.

Secretary Jean-Claude Reynaud: “We have adopted the refreshment of the new statutes, the strengths of which are as follows:

– CRC name exclusive to the club following the filing of the name, logo and acronym with the INPI. No one can use this “company name” other than the club, and without its authorization.

– election of the Management Committee every 4 years with reference to the Olympic year. Next renewal in 2024

– the executive office is composed of either a president and a vice-president or two co-presidents, a secretary, a treasurer

– the Management Committee is made up of all managers.

Adoption of Internal Regulations recalling the payment of contributions by all members of the association and the notion of respect for people and property allocated. »

Activity report of Secretary Jean-Claude Reynaud

Jean-Claude Reynaud: We had a full sports season…. or almost, which was a relaxation for us to be able to practice our sport, moreover with not too much bad weather, except for the match in Auxonne where it was better to be on the bus (as I did) than on and at the edges of the field.

The Seniors team has played 17 Territorial Championship matches and 2 friendly matches (Verdun sur le Doubs and Ils sur Tille).

The territorial “Championship” was somewhat, I would say “folk” insofar as it was announced in a Group C form with 2 pools of 8 clubs and a pool of 7, then transformed a few days later into Brewing Pools , to determine the 4 levels of the series…, we therefore played 8 matches in Brassage classifying ourselves in the 2nd Regional Series (out of the 4 currently), missing the 1st series for one or two points in the general classification, having nevertheless achieved 6 victories for 2 defeats (against our friends and neighbors of the Givry-Cheilly agreement).

In the 2nd series qualifying group we played 7 games out of the 8), i.e. 5 wins for 2 losses, both against Bourbon-Lancy who will also beat us in the final in Beaune 16 to 20, after a very good match and a refused try that might have changed the situation…. A season which had started on October 17, 2021 and ended on May 7, 2022, i.e. 7 effective months on the calendar, but at the rate of two games per month, or even three in March 2022, it is not very motivating from a sporting point of view. when in all this you have the end of the year period… »

The secretary called on the federation for a revision of the calendar to be able to plan for the season. For him, it is essential to make rugby profitable and to bring in or return players, whether they are Seniors or Juniors, but also at the level of the basic training that is the Rugby School.

In terms of training, the Steering Committee will reflect on one or more training possibilities for the Federal Optimization Certificate for categories over 18 years old. “A rugby school has been reborn at the CRC for this 2021-2022 season. Certainly not with an overstaffed workforce. At the start, we had a good fifteen girls and boys”.

The club had the will to set up a rugby school as it had at a certain period and to combine the directors of the primary schools of Châtenoy le Royal with the Rugby Tango Chalonnais intervening in these schools, the League which supported the project with various authorities and materially the city of Châtenoy le Royal and of course the CRC.

René Chambaz was kind enough to put on his crampons every Wednesday and Saturday morning in order to supervise the kids on his own to begin with, then parents came to help him and one of them, Ludovic Devlieger, became a manager.

The club leaders met Christophe Cabadaïs, technical director of the Chalon club and Sylvain Guyon, head of the Chalonnaise rugby school, in order to finalize the operation for the 2022-2023 season. An educational project will be set up in the schools of Châtenoy le Royal, but also in Saint Rémy, managed by the RTC and its teams of apprentices in Professional Certificate. They will also have the mission of making it known that rugby is present in Châtenoy le Royal for 5 to 10 year olds. The older ones, aged 11 and over, will be directed to the RTC if possible and with parental consent, under CRC license. A baby rugby level (5/6 years old) will be open to the club. U8 and U10 teams, depending on the current workforce, train alternately in Châtenoy and Chalon, just to prove that rugby has its place in the Chalonnais with two partner clubs.

6 U12 and U14 players played at the RTC, under CRC license, for the season sold.

We have planned Brevet Fédéral Baby and Brevet Fédéral Initiation training for the 2022-2023 season. added the secretary.

A towing will be done in schools for the start of the school year.

As other activities of the CRC: participation in the monthly meetings of the Municipal Sports Office. Participation in a CODEP 71 meeting in Givry is undoubtedly a first! Participation in the WHO Sport Trophies evening. Participation in the WHO inter-associative pétanque competition.

A rugby animation during the Bodeg’Arts Festival organized by the Banda Desperados de Châtenoy.

The CRC organized two events: the flea market on June 12, 2022 and the so-called end-of-year day with oysters, snails, etc., on December 4, 2021.

The secretary thanked the players and managers for trusting him.

I’m glad to see that the CRC has regained its colors, it’s thanks to all of you players, coaches and leaders, make them shine even more next season. Welcome to new licensees and leaders, you arrive in a club of friends who like to play rugby, with pleasure, as real amateurs if you know what I mean. Thank you for the past season and thank you in advance for the one you are going to offer usr” concluded Jean-Claude Reynaud, club secretary.

Financial Report by Treasurer Paquerette Calon

A point eagerly awaited by the members gathered for this AG is the state of the club’s accounts. Treasurer Paquerette Calon made a flawless presentation of the accounts, accounts which were closed on June 30, 2022

It turns out that for this end of the 2021/2022 financial year, the state of health of the accounts is still green, which proves that good management makes it possible to quickly put cash back afloat. Having a healthy cash flow satisfies not only the leaders but also the players, coaches, parents of the children of the rugby school and the municipality which in no way wishes to see a club disappear, especially if like the CRC it progresses in members, makes it grow his school and exports the image of the town when he plays outside.

Rugby school sports report by René Chambaz

René Chambaz made his presentation on the rugby school with his satisfaction at seeing the children champions in group C in Autun. He thanked the parents for their involvement in the life of the rugby school, Ludovic who is very available and Sylvain Guyon from the Chalon club for his precious help, not forgetting Jean-Claude Reynaud who is 100 percent invested in the club and the rugby school. A school where the little ones want to renew next year, where they have fun and win. From 4 to 10 years old, these children know that they will be able to continue because after rugby school, there is still rugby and who knows, maybe see one evaluated and reach a high level. For René Chambaz, it is important to swell the ranks.

Moral report of President Thomas Bouillot

In the speech of Thomas Bouillot co-president, a word came up very often “Renewal”. “Renewal” of the club after a certain time of uncertainty, “renewal” by the end of the agreement with St Firmin, “renewal” with the school of rugby, “renewal” with the creation of Baby rugby. He translated his congratulations to the players. He announced a new coach for the senior team plus Clément Raviot as a physical trainer. Speaking to the players, he told them that they had relaunched the club and that he did not understand losing them, that recruitment was not for that.

He recalled and thanked the previous management team for the work done within the club. Just as he thanked the president of the WHO, the representative of the league, the president of CODEP and the representative of the municipality of Châtenoy for their presence and help for the development of rugby.

The club registers 19 new players or senior managers, taking into account departures or stops, the number of Seniors hired for 2022-2023 would currently be 45 players.

The president then gave the floor to the authorities present before launching a call for candidates to join the steering committee. Six entries to the Steering Committee were noted: Paquerette and Yohan Calon, Clément Raviot, Rann Van Der Stel, Mickaël Cléaux and Ludovic Devlieger
Then, the Board withdrew and the New Executive Board was elected: it is made up of two Co-Presidents: Tony Pandrot and Thomas Bouillot, a secretary: Jean-Claude Reynaud and a treasurer: Paquerette Calon.

Commissions will be awarded on Friday July 15, 2021.
The club was waiting for a wise decision: to be involved in the R2 regional championship because of the possibility of hiring a reserve team at 12.

The decision arrived on Monday July 11 and was announced to Thomas and Tony (the 2 co-presidents of the CRC) by the president of the league Jean-François Contant, the CRC will play in R2 next season, a real return to the Honor Promotion level with 2 senior teams involved (R2 = Regional 2, second level below Federal 3).

Seniors training resumes on Friday July 29, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. at the Charréconduit stadium. For the rugby school open to children aged 5 to 10, registration will be taken at the Forum des associations de Châtenoy le Royal on Sunday August 28, 2022 or from Wednesday September 7, 2022 at 2 p.m. at the rugby stadium 33 rue de Charreconducted.

The GA ended, everyone gathered around a friendly buffet where the discussions could continue.
