1st Spring Practice info: We will start Saturday, February 14 at the Panzer pitch. County fields do not start until March 1, but we have asked for anything open last 2 weeks of February. First game is slated for 2/28 but is dependent on field conditions (i.e. we will stay off of Lough field if it is frozen or seriously waterlogged).


Final Savannah payment of $140 is due February 1 ($240 to buy a bed outright). If you are not paid up, Kermit will sell your bed. If you have not sent your final payment Kermit will be at the banquet.

Bugger practice, this coming Saturday, January 24, 10:30 am Panzer Pitch followed by rehydration/lunch. Post availability on message board under "Thursday, January 22 and Saturday, January 24". Anyone that forgets where Panzer Pitch is, directions are on the web site. Looks like the weather breaks toward the end of the week and we should be able to get a run in this Saturday with a current forecast of 40.


from Fairfax Eagle/Suburber Scottish Steve:
"Guys - I'm lining up Ifo Fitness as a potential sponsor of the Eagles and Suburbs. To start with, they're offering us a 10% discount on supplements. To redeem, you just need to enter 'fairfaxeagles' in the coupon code box on the checkout page. Their prices are really good, 30% less than GNC and The Vitamin Shoppe, not including the 10% discount. Shipping is fast, < 3 days. The guy can get pretty much anything too. If it's not on the site, just email him and he'll get it. The more sales he gets, the better the sponsorship deal will be. Cheers, Steve"


Let's try to resurrect the Thursday night socials/happy hour, timeframe 5:30/6 pm 'til whenever, at The House of Wing (our sponsors). The socials are a good chance for us to get back together, bring around any potential newbies, and prepare for what promises to be an exciting season.

Not sure who they are or why they were doing this Haka nude but I thought I'd post it anyway...





Bugger practice, this coming Saturday, January 10, 1030 Panzer Pitch. Everyone interested in getting a run please post your availability for touch followed by rehydration/lunch. Post replies on message board under "Saturday 10 January". Anyone that forgets where Panzer Pitch is, directions are on the web site.


from Kermit D. Frog concerning Savannah trip: "I have 5 beds open from people who said they wanted the beds held, but no $$$ as yet. Total Payment of $240 is due 02/01/09. If you are not paid up, I will sell your bed. If I have under 17 persons paid, I will be contacting other clubs..."

Send $$$ ASAP to:
Chris Cahill
3230 Wellington Rd.
Alexandria, VA 22302


from OD: "I think it is time that the club does something for the community to remain a locally responsible club. How many guys are able to/interested in giving blood? It has been a while since I have seen the latest restrictions on donorship, but we should be able to come up with at least a couple of dozen donors. If we can get a sense of how many of us are candidate donors and it makes sense for Red Cross, we can consider holding a blood drive on our own or with one or two of our sponsors.

Please post up whether you are eligible and interested to give, and we'll see what we can put together. We should do it before the start of the season, since the Red Cross instructions will likely indicate that donors should give themselves at least a few days to recover blood volume before any strenuous activity.

I don't know about the karmic benefits or trying to righten the balance of the Universe, but...
1) I look at it kinda like an oil change, y ou just don't swap it out all at once - you give some away and make some new.
2) It is a cheap buzz if taken as a prelude to a couple of beers...

There you have it: a healthy reason and a deeply degenerate one - take your choice... they do need blood desperately, and it would be something to connect us to the community - the largest questions are how many units can we commit and whether it's enough for a bloodmobile, and if it is, where to park it during the drive."

Post your interest on the message board under "Blood Drive".


And, for some inpsirational reading: an article from our own Buzz McClain concerning American rugger Mike MacDonald being named Captain at Leeds.
