UGARFC 50th Anniversary Celebration - Oct 6-8, 2017 in Athens

Celebrate legendary tournament wins, epic matches, and renew old friendships with teammates from across the decades as we celebrate 50 years of rugby at the University of Georgia. The weekend will feature a Happy Hour gathering on Friday the 6th, an alumni match on Saturday followed by a banquet at the Classic Center. The banquet will feature one of the club founders Brian Finch, and other noted UGARFC alums. More details will be shared later this summer, but make plans to come back to Athens and be part of this historic weekend. [Note the banquet attire is business casual, i.e. slacks + a shirt & jacket.
