IT BEGINS! This Saturday, August 27th, come out to Treasure Island to watch the Fog Women’s first pre-season scrimmage of the Fall at home against the Berkeley All Blues, a local Women’s Premier League (WPL) team that currently holds the National 7s title.
Our ladies have been training hard during this past 7s season and have a new coach. This should be an impressive match. Come on out and watch them test out their competitive skills!
Bring a folding chair, some sunblock, and weather-appropriate clothes. Snacks and drinks are OK, but no outside alcohol please. All animals should be on a leash.
Kickoff is at 11am at the Fog Rugby pitch.
We’ll also be selling food, jello shots, and FOG RUGBY® merchandise while you enjoy watching some great rugby on the projection screen.
Place: Lone Star Saloon (1354 Harrison Street, San Francisco)
Date: Sunday, August 21st Time: 4:00pm to 8:00pm

Come support Fog Rugby as the club runs two booths for recruitment and boozing at the Up Your Alley Street Fair this coming Sunday, July 31!
While the Folsom Street Fair has grown into an international destination for kinksters and the tourists who ogle them, the Up Your Alley Fair has become increasingly important as a more intimate oasis for local leatherheads who remember the scene’s old days. The fair has brought much-needed attention to the often-overlooked SoMa neighborhood.
The organization is widely dedicated to supporting groups and charities like the Episcopal Community Services, AIDS Emergency Fund, and Transgender Law Center.
