This Sunday info

MYR parents, coaches, supporters and players,
I am super psyched about this weekend. I know we will all have a fun and successful day of rugby on Sunday. Please be there at 8-830am to pick up t-shirts, sign waivers, and get arm bands. I will be there at 8am sharp. Again, one parent is free but it is $15 for each additional. We will have parents at the gate handing out the arm bands so you can get into the registration tent. I had to put a few Tigers as Owls because you had so many but that shouldn’t be a problem when you play, just know which roster you’re on to get your t-shirt. Don’t forget your sunscreen, hats and water! Let us know if you cant make it so we won’t wait for you outside the gate to give you an arm band. Team rosters and announcements:

Owls:
Martin, Elijah, Audra, Derek, Johnathan, Adin, Marc Anthony, Steven Upston, Harvey McGuiness, Josh Casaus, Anna Lewis, Damien, Davey, and Carlos.
We need snacks. Please each parent pick-up some oranges or granola bars before Sunday and bring them down.

Tigers:
Nyah, Isaiah, Ethan, Selena, Milo, Omar, Oscar, Ariana, Willie, Van, Graham, Jacob, Lucas. Your first game is at 9:45 but be there by 8:45 to get signed in.

Please let me know immediately if I am missing anyone.

Also the men’s team, the SFRFC Santos (my team) plays Sevens Rugby tomorrow if you have any inkling to make it a whole weekend of rugby at the Celtic Fest. We have a good chance to win it. Call or text me with any questions.

Cheers,
Joe L.

Games tomorrow

Your kids might have the opportunity to play 2 games tomorrow so try to stick around. The games start at 9am at the MRC. We will try to play 4 games. The young guys will start first and hopefully we will have enough for 2 games Rams vs LA (field 1 at 9:10am, U-9) and Owls vs Rams/LA little guys combo team (field 2, 9:20am, U-11). Then the Tigers vs the LA RIO Rabbits (field 1 at 9:45, U-13) and the Tigers/Rams Combo team vs LA Rabbits/Owls combo team at (10am on field 2). We should be done by 10:30. We will have a water jug out there but anything else should be provided by the parents so please bring snacks and juices. Please coordinate with each other. If you want to help ref please get there early so we can run you through the rules and you can shadow the first game with the refs. We could sure use the help.

I am looking forward to another day of fun for all of us!!!

Scrimmages this Saturday

The Wise Improvements owls listening to coach Axel

Despite the Holiday weekend MYR is planning on some informal rugby youth non-contact games tomorrow morning (Saturday 4/7/12 at 9am) at the MRC pitches. It looks like our numbers will be a bit low because of the holiday and Los Alamos won’t be joining us but we should have enough for a few touch games at different levels. We might also get a visit from former league head Richard Morris (current High School Tackle coach) and Rob Day (youth director 2007-2011) who might have a special rugby surprise for us. If we don’t see you then have a great weekend and we will see you at practice next week.
