Since 1967, the Assassins Rugby Football Club (ARFC) has been one of Manitoba’s most successful and enduring amateur sports organizations, introducing thousands of young men and women to the great sport of rugby and creating friendships and professional connections that endure throughout these players’ adult lives.
In August of 2017, hundreds of Assassins RFC players, past and present, will gather in Winnipeg for a celebration of the club’s half-century of sporting accomplishment. The ARFC, current holders of the championship title in Rugby Manitoba’s senior men’s Premier Division and Division 2, will enter its 50th-anniversary season with a lot to celebrate.
The itinerary for the reunion celebration can be viewed below.
That’s a whole lot of rugby, a whole lot of blood, sweat, beer, brotherhood, sisterhood, shared stories and indelible memories. Fifty years of Assassins rugby. Yes, that certainly is something to celebrate.
Start off the reunion weekend by joining us at Maple Grove Rugby Park for food, entertainment and watch the current Assassins face-off against the Saracens on the pitch. Wear your favourite Assassins jersey for a reunion photo opportunity!
