Western Suburbs RFC Today

6 November 2008

Practice tonight at WOG at 9 pm. Directions can be found here.

Important info concerning Saturday's playoff match versus North Bay at Lough field.

Steve has gotten permission from his neighbor and will be widening his field to meet the minimum width requirements for the playoffs.

Field committee volunteers will be needed to assist in field set-up.

Since it is a playoff match, field set-up parameters are a bit more important, and they will also require setting up the sideline ropes to keep touch lines cleared and keep spectators and player subs away from the pitch.

Please volunteer to assist and be at the field no later than 10 am.

from Match Secretary Kermit: North Bay is bringing 22 and committed to a 2nd match. USUHS RFC is also coming to fill in holes. They cannot commit to a full team, but they will have about 10.


This coming Sunday, November 9, The 12th Annual Ambassador's Shield will be held at Trinity College starting at 9:30 AM. The annual event hosted by the New Zealand Embassy is for the promotion of rugby in the DC area and historically features a Local Area or Territorial Area Union side against a New Zealand ex-patriot side (The Embassy side). This year, the event features U19 and Old Boys preliminaries and a free youth clinic from 12-1 (no experience necessary, boys and girls welcome). All of this will be followed by a 2PM kick-off for the main event, the NZ Embassy side against the Washington Barbarians (no, I don't know who they are, but they are likely a collection of select-side caliber players from the MARFU and beyond. Details can be found here.

Savannah St. Patrick's day tour update: We have room for 19 more people (3 people have paid) in the house for Savannah and the cost is $240 per (taxes and damage fees added in the final bill) w/$100 due Saturday.

Pay the $100 to the Kerminator.

Old Boys Mini Tournament - Mark your calendars, lads! The local area Old Boys' clubs will be having a mini-tournament on November 16 (Sunday). Please respond with your interest and availability to John O'Donnell (O.D.) at Everybody we have is needed to keep up the numbers and to put up a competitive side. The tournament will likely be hosted by the Geese at Jonathon Warner's farm in Dickerson, MD. This year it is expected that the teams will include the old stalwarts the Geese, the 'troons, and the SOBs, as well as a newly resurrected side of PAX River Old Boys known as the FOG (Friggin' Old Guys). All affiliated and unaffiliated players are invited to join in the day's events there will be ample time for everyone!
