The Pacific Northwest Rugby Referee Society recently sent an open letter to all rugby clubs in the Pacific Northwest alerting them to a critical shortage of trained referees this spring. This predicament will continue until the rugby community as a whole bands together and works proactively to support and develop our referee corps here in the Northwest. The support of all referees in this outreach effort is also needed. Please read the letter and do what you can to help us recruit more referees. For more information contact John Clavin
