Calling all DARC Old Boys, Old Girls, and current club members….
Old Boys Weekend is one of the traditions that makes rugby great. We dedicate Memorial Day weekend to honoring both our current players and the Old Boys and Girls who started the club and built it up over the years. If it weren’t for these “Old” individuals, we wouldn’t be where we are today in DARC.
Every Old Boys & Girls Weekend starts with our annual formal banquet for the club on Friday. The banquet honors current players for their selections for MVP, Rookie of the Year, and Most Improved Player. There may even be some inductions into honor societies. Along with dinner and drinks, everything will conclude with the renowned Rookie Skit to allow each club rookie to complete their first season with the club. The Formal Banquet will take place Friday night of Memorial Day Weekend at the American Czechoslovakian Club in Dayton from 6:30 until approximately 10:00.
On that Saturday the club will host our staple event: The Annual Old Boys & Old Girls games! These games are where the old experienced players show the “young ones” how things were done back in their day and why getting old doesn’t mean you can’t be a true rugger. Women will kick off their game at 11:00 AM and the Men will follow at 1:00. Both games taking place at Dayton Rugby Grounds. There will be a cookout for all members and families to enjoy and there will even be a bounce house for the kids!
