Annual Penn State Rugby Family & Friends Weekend

The Penn State Rugby Alumni Club would like to invite all Alumni, current players, parents of both current players and Alumni as well as friends of Penn State Rugby to join us for our annual reunion the weekend of August 17-19, 2018 in State College. Head back to Happy Valley to see old friends and to meet the current teams! We will also be honoring our Women's Team Founders from the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s on Friday evening with a dinner just for them. We hope to see you there!

Event Schedule:

Friday -Afternoon

Annual golf outing to kick off the weekend. Tee time around 1:30 PM. 

Friday Evening
For the women and women's coaches from the 1970s -1980s and 1991-1995, the Alumni Club will be hosting an informal dinner in the State College area. This will be a special opportunity to reconnect with old friends and the program. To keep the gathering intimate, this invitation is only for those who played during these time periods. Details will be provided via email or phone to those who register for the event. 

For everyone else, we will see everyone at Doggie's Rathskellar and Garden as you trickle into town Friday night!

We will be at West Fields all day for the Men’s and Women’s Alumni matches and (if numbers allow) a touch game for the kids. Planned start time is 11 AM.
On Saturday evening all are welcome to join us at the Hawbaker Pavilion at the golf course for a catered buffet by our own Bob Ricketts. Beer and wine are also included with your dinner ticket for those over 21 years of age. Please note that the Golf Course now has its own liquor license and will be providing all wine and beer. This is a change from previous years when the Alumni Club provided various beers and Blair Vineyards wine.

During dinner there will be activities for the kids, silent auction items and a 50/50. We will also be honoring all those with a graduation year ending in “8.”
