Looking for an exceptional value for an exceptionally cold mug of brew?
Then look no further!! Buy an official WSRFC beer glass ($5) for your cold brew.
A set of 6 will be a fine addition to your bar or entertainment activities.
Test drive your new glass at the WSRFC Banquet!!!
These will sell fast, so get yours while supplies last.

While we do have a couple of coaching leads it looks like practice will be run
by an Old Boy or 2 or 3.
The practice and game plan will be developed by the field officers with
temporary coach input.
We are asking that all players show whoever runs practice respect and to
conform to the practice plan of the day.


General news:
Full dues of $120 deadline is Tues before the first regular game.
We still have a few people who owe for the fall.
Dues status WILL affect eligibility for selection.
This is a CIPP season and we will not cipp anyone without dues payment.
We have been burned on this before and you cannot play without being cipped.
You can cipp yourself (www.usarugby.org) and pay $85 dues with a copy of your
cipp registration. OD has agreed to chair a By-laws review committee.
The goal of this group is to edit, develop language for director of youth rugby
amendment that was approved and consider other amendments to the existing by-laws.
We hope to have a finished proposal for a summer team meeting.
OD will be soliciting volunteers to participate.
Nothing can be changed without a vote of the membership.
Kelly has ordered 1000 generic WSRFC business cards.

The Old Boys are ordering a set of jerseys for the spring '08 season. 
They will be black/white Adidas hoops. 
I suspect the club insignia will include Old Boys in it, and we will have a sponsor
insignia under the numbers in the back and likely one on each sleeve
(not billboard sized insignia, but respectful of our generous sponsors). 
Anyone interested in purchasing a jersey of their own is welcome to add to our order. 
The jerseys, fully customized will likely fall in the $50 range. 
Please contact O.D. at jgodonnell@netzero.com.
