Hey team! It’s been a long time since you’ve heard from us so we wanted to get out a quick message to the whole DC Touch Rugby group.
First, I hope you all know we miss playing touch rugby and seeing you all like crazy! I can’t wait for the day when we can all be back to playing like before. Unfortunately, for now that may be a little while yet. Please know that the DC Touch Rugby leadership has been working behind the scenes to get us back to playing and we are currently working on the DC Touch Rugby Revival Plan! This will include phased reopening when appropriate and new safety measures and guidelines for playing.
Stayed tuned for further announcements in the coming weeks and until we all meet again, I hope you are staying safe and healthy.
No rugby today because of the rainy weather, BUT we are ON for Thursday at 5:30 PM by the Washington Monument! This is the last evening touch session of the year so get your butts out there! Also to celebrate we will have glow sticks and will play even after dark. See you all out there tomorrow!
I will keep an eye on the weather but as of right now it doesn’t look so good for tomorrow. We are alternatively considering Thursday evening at 6:00 PM if we get rained out. Be on the lookout for an update from me for tomorrow in the afternoon (circa 4 pm).
Regardless of which day it is I hope a bunch of you can make it because we are going all out for our last evening/night session of the year and will be playing well into the encroaching darkness with a glow stick touch rugby party! Also there is talk of an after touch drink session at The Exchange which is a sports bar within walking distance from the field.
Looking forward to seeing you all out there!
We’re on for 0930 am tomorrow morning. I say we try the tidal basin field on Raoul Wallenberg place. If it’s taken for some reason, our back up will be by the monument.
See you out there!
See you all out there. 0930 near the Washington monument.
Looking forward to another stellar run around tomorrow with this awesome fall weather we’ve been having! 530 PM at 17th and constitution.
Tomorrow looks like it’s going to be great weather! See you all out there! 9:00 am at 17th and Constitution. Between Washington monument and the WWII memorial.
Remember no discussion about world cup matches until Sunday!
Who’s up for a 900 am start time tomorrow to play before it gets even hotter? Leave a comment below if you’re in!
If you’ve already replied to the WhatsApp thread you do not need to reply here again.
Tidal basin field at 0930. Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to make it so someone please bring a ball and cones.
Looks like a beautiful day for it!
Looks good for this evening. Both Georgia and I won’t be able to make it so somebody please be sure to bring a ball and the cones! Plan to meet at the tidal basin field (see last post for map if you dont know where it is) approx. 15th and independence at 6:00 pm!
