To be in with a chance of winning, get yourself down to your local rugby club on RBS RugbyForce weekend, Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 August. With support from RBS, a record 149 clubs up and down the country will be throwing open their doors and putting on community events to celebrate the start of the new season.

Your challenge is to come up with pictures that capture the spirit and excitement of RBS RugbyForce.

It could be any aspect of the events that clubs are putting on, from DIY repairs to facilities, through touch rugby tournaments to family BBQs. Show us what your local club and community got up to and your next assignment could be a Test match at the home of Scottish rugby.

To enter the competition, email your RBS RugbyForce pictures to RBSRugby@mcsaatchi.com by 10am on Wednesday 14 August. We’ll host a selection of the images on both Scotsman.com and the RBS Scottish Rugby Facebook page, with the best three being selected by Scotland’s most capped player and RBS ambassador, Chris Paterson, and Scotsman picture editor Andy O’Brien.

First prize is a photography pass to a home Scotland international (to be decided by RBS), plus two match tickets so friends and family can share the day.

Second and third prizes will be a pair of tickets to a home Scotland international (to be decided by RBS).

Get in touch with your local rugby club to find out what they’ve got planned for RBS RugbyForce weekend and how you can get involved. You can find a full list of those taking part here: http://on.fb.me/13sd6o1
