Vision for DARC:
Secretary – Amy Lee
Originally from: Dayton, OH
Years Playing Rugby: I never played Rugby, I just met everyone when I was their bartender back in 1981. Then I married a Rugby player/referee and it became a way of life.
Years Associated with DARC: 40
Position: Event Planner Extraordinaire!
Vision for DARC: I’d like to work with everyone to help build Dayton into a great club. It’s already great because of the people, but I’d like to help the club grow and turn into a Division One club. I think there are a lot of talented people in the club group and I think we can pull it together and put Dayton on the map. I’d like to see more of the Old Boys/Old Girls around. When I visited Thurles, Ireland with the club during the 1996 tour. the Thurles club really impressed me, I think we can do the same in Dayton. They had photos on the wall from teams from a hundred years ago. They had a fantastic clubhouse. I’d like to see that in Dayton.
