In November, we began demolition and construction of a remodeled kitchen. This kitchen cost the club approximately $65. Yes… $65. All the materials, labor and equipment were donated and it was a monumental task. And with a ton of effort in both physical labor and solicitation of donors… WE DID IT! The kitchen opened its doors on January 3rd and not only is generating fundraising for the club sides, it also is helping us control the costs of our socials! The High School had a great pasta feed for the San Mateo club on 1/20… thanks to the work of the following people:
Demolition Crew - Rafael, Paul Santinelli, Colby Stevens, Luca Tani, Jeff Brunetto, Jack Bacigalupi, Jason Gonzalez
Donor Crew - Ansel Van Zandt, Tony Wells, Mike Caravelli, Bernie Curran, Paul Santinelli
Construction Crew - Mossy McElligott's crew… who did all the rough in, drywall and paneling
Plumbing Crew - Paul Santinelli
Electrical Crew - Jone Naqica, Sone Tonga, Opeti Okusi
Painting Crew - Paul Clisham Painting
Flooring Crew - Neil Foote, Tyra Norlander, Paul Santinelli

LAFAYETTE, CO. - The Defending Champion Men's Eagles are ready to start a new season at the 2018 Americas Rugby Championship (ARC) where they'll begin their title defense with three consecutive home matches in California, starting Feb. 3. Head Coach Gary Gold announces a traveling roster which includes 18 returning players from the 2017 ARC. Tickets for all three home contests against Argentina XV (Feb. 3), rival Canada (Feb. 10) and Chile (Feb. 17) are on sale now and available by visiting USARugby.org/tickets.
The Eagles make a return to the pitch after ending their 2017 season with an overall record of 6-2-3 (W-D-L) and a position of No. 17 in the World Rugby Rankings. An impressive run in the previous season saw the United States clinch their first ARC Championship title, seal a victory against Canada to secure their place at the 2019 World Cup in Japan and finish just 1-point shy of a November test series sweep with an almost upset of No. 12 Georgia.
