CRFC honors Mike Bumgarner at home game 10/10
On Sat. October 10th CRFC will be honoring our dearly departed teammate Mike Bumgarner on this day at the CRFC Clubhouse with a ceremony. There weren't any better in our club's long history to slip on the magic Green & Orange - he embodied what it's all about on & off the pitch!
It will start at 11:30pm and the dedication / memorial is at 12:45pm. Click here to view more information on the dedication.
Please try to round up as many of Mike's teammates from the 1971-1984 era. We want to have everyone aware and on hand!
Thanks to all and we will see you there. Check our facebook page for more information.
CALLING ALL CHARLOTTE RUGBY OLD BOYS!
It's time to dust off the cleats and get on the pitch. After numerous requests, the Charlotte Rugby Club will have some old boys games in the fall. This team will play a handful of games against other old boys / social sides in the Carolinas. There's no commitment to training, but we recommend you show up when you can! Games will be rolling & unlimited subs, so come on out whether you can play 10 or 80 minutes.
To cover our game day expenses we ask each player to throw in $20/game or a $100 social membership for the year covers all your games. This will cover ref and EMT fees plus your post-game meal. Anyone is welcome to play as long as they have CIPP'd. All home games will be played at Skillbeck Athletic Grounds.

Thank you RAC and NYE for your help
Charlotte RFC would like to extend a huge thank you to the Rugby Athletic Center? (Bernie & Elizabeth Funck) and NYE Landscape Management? (Adam Nye) for their help in getting our pitch in tip-top shape for the fall season! The RAC donated 700lbs of grass seed and the labor to get it put down. NYE Landscape Management has put in countless hours over the last few years removing weeds, aerating, and fertilizing. This is the first time since 2009 that we have seeded the pitch, and hope to spend more time and resources on keeping it in great condition year round.
As a reminder, for now the men's & women's teams continue to train at Sugaw Creek Park (943 West Sugar Creek rd) on Tuesdays & Thursdays (7pm-9pm) through Thursday, 9/24, to allow the grass enough time to withstand hours of rugby.
Dear fans, friends & family, we are happy to have World Rugby Shop host our new Online Store. BLK is our brand of choice and we have a number of items for both men and women. Please note that we are still adding items to the list, so check back soon to see whats available.
