from VP Bryan Siltanen:
Need some help setting up the banquet.
Let's do it up right, with class, and recognize all who have worked to make
our season a success (coach, wives, GFs, Steve, etc.).
Drop me a line if you want to help.

Basically you pick the winner of each match and assign a confidence value.
Cost to play is $10 - Winner take all.
Matches Start Sat. Feb. 2 so all $$$ & Entries will be due by Friday Feb. 1.

The map below describes a soccer-sized field near Fred J. Panzer's house.
These directions are a little easier to understand:
1. from Centreville, take Rt. 28 South to Rt. 29 North.
2. take a right on Pickwick Road (at O'Toole's Restaurant).
3. Go straight thru light over Braddock Road.
4. Continue thru a neighborhood -- you'll now be on Little Rocky Run Circle.
5. at stop sign go straight.
6. take immediate right into community center parking lot (or better yet, park
along the road).
7. follow pavement footpath at far end of parking lot thru woods until get to
New Braddock Road.
8. You want to walk across New Braddock Road (you can hear the traffic from the
rec center parking lot) and head to your right a little.
Look for a trail in the grass (NOT a pavement footpath) along the tree line that
leads to the pitch, which is located under those high powe r lin e s.
It's about a quarter-mile walk. The walk and playing Frogger with the traffic is
a part of the whole practice experience.
9. This is an HOA field and we need to respect the community.
We want you all to chime in, come out, play,
and pass on your years of rugby knowledge.
Some administrative notes:
1. if you need real-time info, always check the message board
( and the "what's new"
sections of the team website at
2. if you can't get access to the message board, email Kermit at asking for permission.
3. DO NOT send emails to this address ( if you need immediate
information because it is not monitored on a regular basis.
