The Renegades field is located at 3200 Atlanta Silverbacks Way, Atlanta Ga. 30340. There is a map attached, and here is the link: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Atlanta+Silverbacks+Park/​

Recap of the 2014 Alumni Banquet

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended and/or participated in the planning or execution of the University of Georgia Rugby Alumni Banquet on Jan 25, 2014. It was a great success on many levels. We had hoped for around 85 attendees, expected to get around 60, and actually got over 100 Alumni, current players, and guests. We also were able to raise money to put towards our short- and long-term goals for the UGARFC.
