Minneapolis is our choice to host The Bingham Cup in 2010

The San Francisco Fog RFC strongly supports the Minneapolis Mayhem RFC’s bid for The Bingham Cup® in 2010.

IGRAB’s mission is to establish and nurture member clubs whose goals align with its own. The Mayhem was founded as an IGRAB club, with IGRAB’s help, and since its inception has been a model for what IGRAB hopes to accomplish as an organizing body.

We believe IGRAB’s Bid Evaluation Committee erred in its interpretation of the IGRAB constitution when it allowed a non-member club to submit a bid. Fog Rugby feels very strongly that only member clubs who embody and actively pursue IGRAB’s stated goals should benefit from the worldwide attention and increased public profile that results from hosting The Bingham Cup®.

IGRAB has only a handful of tools available to pursue its mission of developing and deepening the organizational capacity of its member clubs. We would be misguided if we used that power to benefit a non-member club when a superb bid from a fellow IGRAB club exists.

Minneapolis has done the hard work it takes to establish and grow an IGRAB club. They have submitted a terrific bid and that is why we enthusiastically support them as hosts of The Bingham Cup® in 2010.

Fog Men vs. Redding - December 13

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
