Last night for Jan at the Capilano Rugby Club
As most club members are aware, Jan will soon be leaving the club from his position behind the bar. We will be hosting a last night event on Thursday July 27th. This will give club members a chance to see Jan at Klahanie one last time and to thank him for all his efforts at the club over the years. The clubhouse will be open from 6:30pm on wards as per every Thursday night. The Summer Touch group will join after 8:00pm and we will make a short presentation to Jan at 9:00pm. Attire will be to dress like Jan, denim or Boston sports attire.

Summer Touch Field Update

This is the last round robin week. Finals night is Thursday July 27, currently scheduled for Fen Burdett. If the location changes again we will updated all the teams.
