On Saturday, May 10, the Ladies of the San Francisco Fog hosted a successful fund raiser as they entertained the crowd wrestling in a vat of Jell-O! Gretchen Robinette from SF Weekly was on the scene, wrote a blog about the event and took some pictures as well, so check it out!
The San Francisco Fog R.F.C. was well-represented in the Pacific Coast Rugby Football Union’s Women’s Grizzlies Developmental Side last Sunday as Bridget Madell and Ruth Parr from the Fog Women’s Side starred in their match against MARFU (Mid-Atlantic) Women’s Senior Select Side at Treasure Island on Sunday, April 13, 2008. Shortly after, the Fog found out that Bridget made the Pacific Coast Grizzlies Select Side. Congratulations to both Bridget and Ruth!
The arms were originally created by Fog scrumhalf Pete Arden in early 2001 for the team’s first jersey. A part-time graphic designer with a lifelong interest in heraldry, “Repete” wanted to create an emblem that could stand the test of time without looking trendy or dated — hence the traditional heraldic approach.
Since then, the distinctive silver, black, and blue shield has become an integral part of the club’s identity, turning up in everything from posters, kit bags, and recruiting cards to the club’s website and YouTube video channel.
More information about the meaning and symbolism behind the Fog’s coat of arms is available in the Symbols and Traditions section of our “About” page.
