Local Rugby College Tournament
On Saturday, March 1, the Rockaway Rugby Club will hold their 6th Annual Collegiate Rugby Tournament at Fort Tilden from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Some of the teams competing this year are Kings Point Merchant Marine Academy, Stonybrook University, Scranton University and Fairfield University. The event will coincide with a player drive and fundraiser for the club. The Fisheads will also raise money with the proceeds going to the Tom "Reegs" Regan Foundation. Regan is a friend and former member of the team who was hurt in a Rugby game at Oneonta State College.
After the tournament is completed, the Rugby team will hold a gathering at the Clubhouse on 113 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard. The festivities will be from 3-7 p.m. and money will be collected for the Fort Tilden Soccer/Rugby Renovation Project. For any other information, call 718-474-1725.
