Dear Fairfield Rugger:
On Saturday, October 5, 2013, the Friends of Fairfield Rugby (FOFR) will host a 50th Anniversary Celebration to recognize an extraordinary achievement; the founding of the Fairfield Rugby Football Club in 1963. We will gather to celebrate 50 years of great rugby, sportsmanship, and camaraderie in a day-long celebration at the University. The plans for the day include men’s and women’s matches at Grauert Field, along with ceremonies recognizing 50 years of (mostly) victories, happy memories and great friendships. The evening will include a reception and dinner on Bellarmine Lawn under a tent where we hope to host up to 1,000 Fairfield Rugger Alumni & Alumnae and spouses, current FURFC members, and friends. A group of former and current Red Ruggers are working hard to make this the single greatest party ever thrown at the University!
Some of what we are working on includes:
There are dozens of former Red Ruggers currently working to make this event spectacular. Of course, it won’t be that without yourparticipation. So,
Over the next several weeks and months we will be providing you with more information about the event including:
Check out our website and Facebook Page. Spread the word…we’re all going to be there on Saturday, October 5th, 2013.
For most of us this is a once in a lifetime event. Let’s make it as memorable as it deserves to be.
