Thursday June 9 at Klahanie Park 
Thursday night at Klahanie Park will be a busy one this week with the Touch League starting and a big Rugby League game. At 6:30pm the club will have the first round of the Touch League. We ask all players and teams to please be there well in advance of 6:30pm to help with organization. Please contact Chris Robinson at crobinson25@hotmail.com if you have any questions. The Capilano Cougars Rugby League team will be hosting the Vancouver Dragons with kickoff scheduled for 7:40pm. The Capilano Cougars won last weekend by a 46-10 score while the Dragons won by close to 60 points. These two top teams will put on a great show of Rugby League.
We hope to have a BBQ set up after the Touch League and before the 
Rugby League match begins around 7:30pm. This should be a great night to come down to Klahanie!
