A Successful Alumni Day
“Alumni Day” was a great success on Saturday. The weather was scorching and the games were hotly contested. Very entertaining rugby all around – the women and men’s teams played their hearts out to the delight of passionate fans.
36 Alumni purchased tickets for lunch, which was served on the deck. Thanks to those who participated and thanks also to Crusader Rugby Club Executive Members, who attended and were able to mingle and answer questions of the attendees. Thanks Candace for organizing the event and catering the food.
International rugby was being broadcast in the clubhouse, while outside Alumni gathered round and told stories of past greatness. The group also clapped on and off the current Crusaders, as well as selecting and presenting Crusader Player of the match honours.
The Alumni group was formalized in the fall of 2019. This was just before COVID raised its head and has hampered activities for so long. It was nice to be able to connect with friends again – in person.
Enthusiasm rushed up from the group. This should translate into repeat Alumni lunches at the park and other suggested activities as well; including an Alumni fishing derby and participation in The Club’s golf tournament. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next event!
