Fog Rugby hails milestone for Ottawa Wolves

The San Francisco Fog today is cheering the entrance of the Ottawa Wolves RFC into the Eastern Ontario Rugby Union.

The Wolves are a newly formed gay rugby team in French-speaking Canada. The club’s president, Carl Pilon (Angry Carl Jr.), played with us over the past few years when he was living in San Francisco. He credits that experience as the inspiration for founding the Wolves.

In their first season the Wolves will play seven exhibition games against other teams in their union. We cheer their entrance into the EORU and wish them continued success.

Fog Men victorious over Stanislaus

The San Francisco Fog Men prevailed over Modesto’s Stanislaus RFC with heart-felt and technical play to win its first victory in the NCRFU 2009 Season by a score of 27-5. Fog Rugby sincerely thanks the Stanislaus Harlots for traveling to San Francisco and playing a well-fought match.

Minneapolis to host The Bingham Cup

Fog Rugby congratulates the Minneapolis Mayhem RFC on its successful bid to host The Bingham Cup® in 2010.

Despite strong competition in the bidding process from Las Vegas’s Sin City Irish RFC, the Mayhem prevailed in a vote by the membership of IGRAB, which comprises representatives of every gay-identifying men’s rugby union club worldwide.

The Bingham Cup® was first hosted by the San Francisco Fog in 2002, and is held every two years. Other cities that have hosted the event are London (2004), New York City (2006), and Dublin (2008).
