Reunion Weekend 2017

The Penn State Rugby Alumni Club would like to invite all Alumni, current players, parents of current players and Alumni as well as friends of Penn State Rugby to join us for our annual reunion the weekend of August 18-20, 2017 in State College to celebrate 55 years of rugby at Penn State. Head back to Happy Valley to see old friends and to meet the current teams and our new Men’s Team Head Coach James Willocks. We hope to have our largest turnout to date so if PSU Rugby has touched your life in some way, we hope to see you there!

Friday Evening
For those who played in the 1960s, the Alumni Club and several gracious Alumni 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 the 1960s. Details will be provided via email to those who register for the event. We will also be reaching out to our Founders by phone.

For everyone else, we will see everyone at the Skellar as you trickle into town Friday night!

Saturday
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. 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 “7” with a special ‘Welcome back!’ to the 1997 & 2007 Women’s National Championship teams who are celebrating their 20
th & 10th “winaversaries,” respectively!
If you are interested in assistance for finding babysitters for Saturday, please email Kristen at
