PNRFU Men's Loggers - Summer 7's

Sorry for such late notice, but our objective has changed a couple times....

June 6th - We will be hosting 1 selections camp/training, location/time TBD....
I am trying to get a more central location in Olympia for this.
We want to send a team to.. 3 of the 4 events below.. depending on interest.

6/13 Budd Bay 7s
6/20 Roy Lucas 7'sPossible training?
6/27 Possible Training?
7/11 Can Ams 7's
7/25 Tacoma Aroma 7's

We will not be competing for a seed at Nationals this year. To be eligible, we would have to create a new club and transfer players CIPP to that club.

As a building program, we don't want to force players to choose between their own club and the Loggers program. This will allow players to come and go, depending on their own clubs schedule, etc.. This will also mean the format will be a little less formal, more inclusive as opposed to exclusive.

Matt Lobe is still the coach.
He is VERY dedicated and lead the boys well this winter in Vegas.
He can give you a better idea of how he envisions this summer series to develop.

So, please spread the word to your players and encourage them to attend the camp on June 6th.

Contact Tanner Lemmon - for more information, etc.

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
