BRFC Ruggers,


Our season opener is this Saturday at our home field in Elkins Park.  Kickoff 1 pm.

ATHLETIC TRAINERS:  We are having difficulty contracting athletic trainers to support our matches.  If anyone out there has training as an AT or EMT and would like to earn a few bucks while watching our Men’s side in action, please let me know.


OLD BOYS GAME:  Also, the call is going out to all Blackthorn Old Boys who want to get a game in this season.  There is an old boys match scheduled for Nov 13. vs. Media.   Pat Hayes, Blackthorn Bob and I will start rounding up the old boys and getting a firm list of names. 


MKS DAY:  The Marshall K. Sturm and With You With Us celebration will be the same day, Nov. 13, so mark you calendars and do not schedule any thing else on this day.  Consider it a Blackthorn Friends & Family Day in addition to our annual MKS day.  Matches so far include Barbarians, Old Boys, and Men.  MKS celebration immediately after last match.


Hope to see you all Saturday.
