IT IS PARTY TIME ONCE MORE! DON’T BE SO CHEAP YOU CAVONNES! COME TO THE ANNUAL AWARDS BANQUET ON JANUARY 27,2018

Posted on January 16, 2018 · Posted in CT Grey News

It is going to snow tomorrow…you’ll be home with the freakin’ kids again… Skiing is too damn expensive, unless you’re a teacher and have lots of days off or work for the State of CT… and everything I said below still applies. Come to the party you cheap bastards… You might get an award.

OK, OK…it is cold out there, there’s too much freaking snow, you are sick of the kids and they are sick of you…Your wife, girlfriend, SO, boyfriend (if you are a back) or your gommad is still pissed at you for the lousy Christmas present she got  and because you passed out on the couch at 8:30 on New Years Eve…. Make it up to her\him by coming to the Annual Awards Banquet! We’ve moved it to the Tunxis Country Club Plantation in Farmington! The good news is that we are less likely to get shot by the locals in the after party drink up, in Farmington, you are more likely to get stabbed by a ski pole or whacked with a lacrosse stick,  but the bad news is that this is Benito’s hometown and there are many questions as to who might be on the lookout for him. This is a great time for you new guys to bring your wives and girlfriends (not both at the same time) for a nice evening out and prove to them that we actually are adults  are not just a bunch of lunatics. Well, that might be a little optimistic…but get her the extra glass of wine or a shot of jager and she won’t remember anyway.  I’m looking forward to meeting or seeing my next ex-wife! It is that kind of party!  And we have our annual CT Jammers match in New Haven! Word has it that  Bud Harvey will get yet another day pass from the assisted living facility and totter out onto the court. Here are the details:

CT JAMMERS MATCH MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION AND NEW FORMAT  FEBRUARY 3, 2018 

The Gaylord Sports Association would like to invite your team to participate in the inaugural SMASH BOWL Wheelchair Rugby Tournament on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, CT.   This is the first tournament of its kind for the Jammers and we are excited to invite you!  This event will give able-bodied rugby teams and students a chance to try their hand at wheelchair rugby.  The top team will face off against CT’s only wheelchair rugby team, the Gaylord Jammers!
All able bodied teams will get into wheelchairs and play each other in a single elimination format, with coaching from a Gaylord Jammers player.  The final game will be between the team who wins the elimination rounds and the Gaylord Jammers team.  This tournament can accommodate up to 8 teams.  To start, we are inviting the Connecticut Greys, the Mitchell College Rugby Team, the SCSU Rugby Team, SCSU TR Team and a team from Gaylord Hospital.  The minimum team size is 4 people, however we recommend at least 8 players so that there are two line-ups (there are 4 players on the court at a time).  If your team has more than 10-12 players, and we have space, you may register two teams.  Each game will be 30 minutes in duration.
Donations from teams are accepted and will support the Gaylord Jammers!
