OUR LIFE MEMBERS
The Vikins club honours the founding members and people who have played a significant part in forming the club. The profiles below show our life members and people who will forever be in the hearts of the Vikings family.
Steve Arnold David McCormack
Steven John Arnold was the visionary whose idea of “expanding rugby in the Hastings area” in late 1995 saw the formation of the Hastings Valley Vikings. Steve rightfully deserves the title Mr Viking, not only founding the club but over the years having two very successful terms as President (1996 – 1998, 2001), contributing as a major sponsor, being a playing member of the Golden Oldies team the Wrinkled Horns, Club Coach, taking the First XV team to a grand final in 2003 and finally in recent years as a Club Patron.
Steve was honoured for his dedicated commitment, hard work and exemplary leadership of the Hastings Valley Vikings by being awarded Life Membership of the Club in 2005 at the 10th Year Anniversary Ball.
Steve Arnold currently resides in Sydney but still keeps a close interest in the Vikings and manages to make it to a number of games each year.
