A Sincere Thank You and Time to Get Dirty!

Friends, Grey, Countrymen, I want to start by thanking everyone for the calls, emails, prayers and support you've given me and my family.  These past 2 weeks have been a whirlwind and a new normal is finally starting to show itself.   I am truly grateful to be part of the Grey family.  Thank you. And now for something completely different...A man with two buttocks...seriously though, it is that time of year again.  The Dirty Boulevard Five tourney in New Haven is this coming Sunday.  Here's the message from the organizer:  WELCOMING ALL RUGGER'S TO THE 2012  Dirty Boulevard...

David Kirk Update

Hello everyone, I spoke with David and he greatly appreciates everyone's emails and phone calls.  He is back in CT now and said he would send out a message to the club at some point.  For those that wish to send a card his address is 34 Hollow RD Woodbury, CT 06798.  Services for his mother will be held out of country.  After speaking with Dave he said his preference would be for us to plant a tree rather than send an arrangement for the services -s0 we are presently working on getting that done. Thanks, Meyer

Thank you

A note from Meyer: Hello everyone, it was a great success this weekend at our first Annual CT Rugby Blood Drive sponsored by the CT Grey.  It was great to see representatives from the CT Grey (we had every generation of player on our team show up from James Ackman- a rookie on the club to Bill Aman- a founder of our club), the Jammers (Hoppy gave blood for the first time), Old Black (Sparkles and a few others came up to support the event), as well as a few Hartford players that came down with Jeff Vencus.  It was also great to see so many college rugby players show up to the event.  Mitchell...

Crawling for a Good Cause

Ruggers, Friends and Countrymen: On November 16, we were informed of a wounded warrior coming home from Afghanastan with ties to our club (http://cgrfc.org/a-wounded-warrior-needs-our-help).  Many of you reached out and made some great suggestions on how we could help.  One way we can help, is to join in on the Wounded Warrior Pub Crawl in Hartford ( http://www.facebook.com/GregCaronFamilyFund#!/events/215965778493297/).  The festivities are tomorrow night, February 4th and kicks off at 5:00 PM at the Russian Lady in Hartford.  The cost to join is $20, which goes to the Semper FI Fund...
