Playoff run was given on a short notice and ended after our first match vs Tri-City 7-39. Our season is over but was a successful one where we ended up 10-3. Our only loses were to Tri-City and gives something to work towards next season. Our last spring game is on the 10th at home vs Fort Wayne. Come out and support us. We will be having elections also so start thinking how you can help the team.
Practice will continue on Thursdays ONLY at 5:30 at Sterling Field until August.
Plans are being made for our 40th anniversary this summer.
The club is planning a two part celebration this year for the 40th anniversary of the founding ( 1974-2014). Here are a few of the details-
July 5th- There will be a full day of rugby at the home pitch- Sterling Park- 99 Center st, Toledo OH. It is about 3/4 mile south of downtown Toledo. On the agenda will be a full Highschool match featuring the Junior Celtics vs St. Johns HS rugby club at 11am. This will be followed by an ole boys match vs the Detroit RFC ole boys. The oleboys match format will include an initial 20min phase for the over 50 gents followed by a 30 min or so all out over 35s. The oleboys match will precede the men's match vs the Detroit RFC Aside kicking off around 1pm. There will be food, adult beverages, tshirts and apparel throughout the day. The after party will begin following the mens match at the Bronze Boar (located downtown just east of the Mudhens Stadium). We will have plenty of old photos, memorabilia and camaraderie. Food and beer will be provided. We are hoping to have 40 years worth of participants- old and new for this celebration. Anyone affiliated with the Club over the past 40 years is encouraged to make an appearance. Anyone needing Hotel accomodations- geographically the Park Inn downtown is ideal. We do not have a group rate yet. I will email it out if we get one.
Nov 15th- The Toledo Celtics will be invading Key West. There will be ole boys match and a mens match vs Ft. Lauderdale. A full list of tour activites and hotel accommodation and itineraries is forthcoming as Mike Fosnaugh puts it all in place.
In support of both of these activities the team is selling jerseys. The tour jerseys will look just like the men's jerseys attached but with a few small changes. The tour/oleboys jerseys will be loose fit cut instead of ribtight like the competitive set. They will also have the traditional collar and an additional "40th anniversary" font under the crest. The tour/ole boys jerseys will not have a number on the back either. These jerseys will be $100 each. This provides funding for the men's jerseys as well as the oleboys.
There are two ways to buy a jersey ( we will hand them out to everyone July 5th unless you request we ship them out to you).
1. Send a check for $100 made out to Toledo Celtics Rugby. Put your size requested in the memo section and also indicate if you would like it to be shipped to you or handed out on July 5th. Mail the check to 2036 Cummings ave, Toledo OH 43609.
We will need this money in before May 1st so we have enough time to get the order in and shipped. So please don't procrastinate.
Attached are what the jerseys will look like as well as directions on sending a paypal payment. Again, keep in mind the Oleboys/tour jerseys will not be "tight fit" as they appear in the illustration. Even so I recommend buying them at least a size larger than your normal T-shirt size. I fit into an XL comfortably- I am 5'9" and 180lbs. Please feel free to contact me if you need any more info. You can also find more info at the teams website toledorugby.com or join the facebook page ( just look for Toledo rugby).
