RAW 2015 March 5-8

If you didn’t attend RAW last year, READ THIS!:

Guys, we are having too much fun for just 70+ old ruggers to keep to themselves. Put RAW 2015(March 5-8) on your calendars and start calling your old teammates. We have golf, BEER, sunshine, spring baseball, BEER, skeet shooting, parties, food, BEER, a rugby match, and BEER. No exams! No IPE! No IF&T! There is NO downside! Get down to Glendale and relive the glory days of being on campus. Let’s make RAW 2015 a blowout with 100+ Rugby Alumni!

Thursday 3/5: Plenty of golf for those so inclined, spring training baseball for others. Thursday night includes Pub Night, where the Rugby Alumni own the Pub, four deep along the length of the bar.

Friday 3/6: More golf, as well as skeet shooting with Range Master Ed Decker ’90.

The Friday night TARA Social at the Pub will include our usual speed networking with the student club. It may also take place at the ‘Old Pub’, and include cigar and whiskey tasting, courtesy of the student club. Pending scheduling, the new CEO and Director General of Thunderbird, Allen Morrison will attend as well.

Saturday 3/7: Rugby Day! The match will be on the Pitch at 1pm. Post-match will be poolside at the Fish. The Rugby Banquet/Auction will be in the usual location, just off the Commons. If you have interesting Rugby items to donate to the Auction, please bring them with you or make arrangements to get them there!

Bring a teammate that didn’t come last year. (Rocket doesn’t count. I want Metcalfe/Turbo/Evil Dave/Not-so-evil Phil/Brian Tague/Grant DeBruin/Steve Franklin and others from across the years).
