BBO Update

Apologies to all for the unfortunate postponement of the BBO a bit back - weather looked OK until 8:00 when the rain just exploded in Connecticut. We will reschedule the event for this Friday, November 4th  - same location but since this may be daylight savings time - we may want to start around 10:00 - 10:30 am.

Grey 62 Worcestor 12     My guess would be nine tries with 7 converted and a penalty kick as the Grey machine scored 62 points.  Thanks to Beaver, Jay Rubino, Kev Dog, JP, Jon Leone and KO for helping Worcestor out.  Great forward play by Mike Powers,  KO, Bubba, Beaver and James Ackman.
