It's not the greatest photo of Cass I've ever seen, but every women at Boathouse Sports and there's a lot of them have seen Cass from the back side. Turns out, as I heard directly from Olympic Rower and Boathouse founder John Strotbeck, Philly Whitemarsh started it all for their jacket line. Pretty cool eh? I know a lot of you still own and wear that jacket all the time. Visit Boathouse Sports to see all their new cool gear.

Fresh Cut Fraser Firs

George Betzler and Peter Heaton, once again, made the trip to Kuhn's Tree Farm in Boalsburg, PA to pick up this year's batch of trees for the boys of PWRFC. Thanks George and Peter we appreciate it. The trees are in and ready for pickup. George's buddy and Penn State rugby supporter, cut the lot of trees the same morning they were picked up, Friday December 3rd. The trees are fresh cut and beautiful. The tree in this email is in my living room and lookin' awesome. Thank you PWRFC.

The question remains: Are you ready for the holidays? Maybe your too old to get all hyped up about the holidays. Maybe you just don't feel like it this year. Heck, maybe you're Jewish and you never had a Christmas tree before. Well, I'm here to tell you it's time. It's time for you to get up out of that recliner, jump into your car and head off to McLean's to grab yourself a fresh Fraser Fir.

At the Siano house, the trip to the McLean's house for our tree has become a treasured annual affair. Note: If you're going to make the trip, remember to bring something for the sweet little wolves to chew on ... like a spare tire or something! Once we got our tree home and in place (the tree was trimmed so it went right into the stand - no additional cutting needed), Rollie, our resident 'Elf on the Shelf' perched himself right near the top of the tree. The kids were amazed! The tree brought instant joy to the Siano house and continues to bring JOY to all who see it.

Put JOY in your household by purchasing a beautiful Fraser Fir from PWRFC! 

Getting to McLean's House

The simplest way is by sleigh. Of course, that requires a special arrangement with Santa Claus, but if you can manage it, it's fun, economical (Santa usually doesn't charge) and fast as lightning. Normally the round trip takes just a blink of an eye and a twitch of the nose! Otherwise, I suggest just calling Keith for directions (info on the web).

About the Fraser Fir

The Fraser Fir, Abies Fraseri, is a classy, tall, fir tree that has short dark-green needles with silver undersides. It is among the most classy of conifers. A great ornamental and Christmas tree because of its density and compactness. Fraser Firs will grow in most locations but must have good drainage.

This dense evergreen tree has wood that is light, soft, not strong and coarse-grained. It is grown extensively for Christmas trees in Boalsburg, PA. at Kuhn's Tree Farm! The gentleman who owns the farm has been associated with the Penn State rugby program for over thirty years.
