Local Male Dancers Fail At Tryouts

Rugby Event Seeking Professionals

Rockaway Rugby Club is about to begin their fall season and all new players are invited to join the team. Practices begin next Thursday at Ft. Tilden (7 p.m.). Experience is not necessary as the Fisheads are always looking for new recruits.

Upcoming events: Saturday August 28th Century Club Party. The bi-annual Century Club party will take place at the rugby club on August 28th. Tickets are available through Jim Mullen, John McCann, Bob Johnson or at the clubhouse. Buffet dinner, refreshments, and prizes are included with admission. Proceeds from this event will go to several local charities and a check will be presented to St. Camillus sports program.

Friday September 3: All Male Revue; The Fisheads first ever All Male Revue will occur on September 3 at 8 p.m. This is a ladies only evening with professional entertainment. Ladies are invited to enjoy a night of laughs under the Fishead tent with food and drinks being served while enjoying the festivities. Aside from the professional dancers, several local gentlemen have also offered to perform (see photos); however all were turned down (for obvious reasons) except for Connolly’s hardbody contest winner Pete "Big Kahuna" McCoy, ex gym owner Rick Friedman, former Connolly’s Hardbody champion Biff McCaffrey, and legendary neighborhood bodybuilder Kevin Magic. This charitable event will open the doors to gentlemen after midnight.

Rugger Pluggers: The Fishead season will begin on Saturday of Labor Day weekend with a home match at Ft. Tilden. Game time is 1 p.m. and the opponent is TBA.

Rockaways summer 7's rugby program fell short of their bid to reach the nationals finishing third in the east. Our thanks to Kermit Egan, Al Caravelli, Brian Geraghty, and Darren Coursey for giving it their all this summer.

Good Luck to Moose Briody who is moving to Pennsylvania to pursue a career in law. Hope to see you on the weekends Tom.

Congrats to Bill and Karen Erhard on the birth of their third son "Luke" and to Kenny and Linda Collins on the arrival of little "Tom Collins". The Fisheads wish all the best.

From the rumor mill: Its been heard around the neighborhood that Wave editor Kevin Boyle is considering upping the age limit for entrance into the Greybeard basketball league now that school yard legend Cliff Shevlin is rapidly approaching 35. What’s going on in the world of softball? With the demise of popular teams like the Publicans and the Pirates will local scribe Brian Dickesheid have anything left to write about?

Sightings: The Kahuna is back!!! As reported earlier in this article Australian rugby sensation Pete "the Big Kahuna" McCoy is back in the Irish Riviera and has once again taken the neighborhood by storm. Aside from winning the Hardbody contest, Pete can be found on his daily pub crawl which finishes up at Connollys each evening or biking on the boardwalk waving to fans.

Well McCoy.....You've done it again. Dave Lonergan was recently spotted boogie boarding on 113th St. in cut off jeans and a white t shirt.
