The San Francisco Fog Men travel north this Saturday to face off against the Redding Highlanders in the eighth annual Bingham Stein match.
The Bingham Stein is a symbol of the first meeting between the two teams, which took place a few weeks after September 11, 2001. Proposing that that match be played in honor of Fog player Mark Bingham, who lost his life aboard United flight 93, the Highlanders furnished a commemorative beer stein that each year goes home with the winner.
The Fog has managed to keep the trophy in San Francisco for the past two years, but the Highlanders will be trying to reverse their recent losses and keep the Bingham Stein in Redding for the next 12 months. It’s sure to be a great match!
Place: Foothill High School, 9733 Deschutes Rd, Palo Cedro CA (map)
Date: Saturday, December 13
Time: Kickoff at 1pm
The San Francisco Fog Men take on the San Francisco Gators at home on Saturday, December 6 at 1pm, in a friendly pre-season game.
And since that’s not nearly enough rugby for a Saturday afternoon, immediately afterward the Fog is holding an intramural scrimmage affectionately known as a Black and Blue Match (after the club’s primary colors). Present and past club members are invited to play, watch, or imbibe as appropriate.
Place: Treasure Island on the corner of Avenue D & 9th Street
Date: Saturday, December 6
Time: Kickoff vs. Gators at 1pm
Social to follow (around 4:30pm) at Lookout Bar.
The San Francisco Fog RFC would like to wish everyone a healthy and happy Thanksgiving holiday.
