Blackthorn Weekly Update - Week of December 15th

By Blackthorn Rugby, 12/16/19, 3:30PM EST


-BRFC Ruggers,


Here are some updates.  Lots going on:


The BRFC 7’s side captained by Big Jim Andruskiewicz had a very respectable showing at Reading 7’s on Dec. 7th.  The side went 2-2 and overall had a good day of rugby.


This past Sunday, some BRFC members attended the one-year anniversary of McCallister’s Brewing Company, our 7’s sponsor.  The new 7’s jerseys were unveiled, and we celebrated and yelled insults at Big Jim as the Eagles beat the Redskins.


The CSC practice pitch has been shut down for the winter.  If we find an indoor site for the winter, we’ll let you know.


There is a Christmas bar crawl sponsored by Jose Pistola’s, tomorrow night Tuesday 6-9 PM.  The crawl begins at Varga Bar and ends at Jose’s where they will finish off the night by crowning the winner and roll right into a Very Joe Gunn Christmas.  Varga Bar 6 PM, Ebenezer’s 7 PM, BAR Philly 8 PM, Jose Pistola’s 9 PM.


Peter O’Halloran’s world famous 12 Pubs of Christmas 2019 will take place this Saturday starting at 2 PM.  Pubs change every ½ hour.  Starts at Market Tavern, then Rogues Gallery, Devils Alley, Drinkers, Cavanaugh’s Rittenhouse, Bards, Irish Pub (dinner), then at 6 PM at Black Sheep, then Franky Bradleys, Brickwall Tavern, Fergies, and Trestle Inn the final stop at 8 PM.  Get on your costumes and come see the city at Christmas time.


Sunday the Eagles take on the Dallas Cowgirls at 4:45 pm with the NFC East title on the line, and BRFC will host a tailgate party somewhere in the Linc parking lot.  More details to be provided on this one.


BRFC is also entered in SJ Winter 7’s, JAN 11 in Evesham, NJ.  Costumes mandatory.  Spectators, you don’t want to miss this.  More details to come.
