Harrison Alfred Koniecki

Small for a turkey, BIG for a baby

My son Harrison Alfred Koniecki was born at 8:01 Thursday 4/8/2010, weighing 8 lbs. 12 oz. (Joe Kelley reminds me that while this is small for a turkey, it is BIG for a baby.).  He's 20 inches long and I'm hoping he'll be smarter than his father and man the back row of the scrum rather than play prop forward.  I will miss the run against Whitehorse this weekend as I get to bring my boy home from the hospital Saturday morning.  Good luck, I hope to be out again soon.

Bob Fisher @ the North Penn Match

PWRFC v. Hibos

Even more new players came out to play on a gorgeous day for the first day of Spring. Six brand new guys took the field for PWRFC today. Yes we were green. the first period was very sluggish. The second a little better. The third a little better. By the fourth period, things picking up. In defense of the Hibos, they didn't have nearly the side on the field that they started with, but it PW certainly was benefiting from the work.

I've been doing this for a long time. In the faces of some, I saw it. The It, as much as anything, means they are here to stay. The team is becoming a club.

Thanks to Joe Grohovsky for providing our new PWRFC 'Man of the Match' blazer. Congratulations to Jeremy Robinson - our Man of the Match and Fougere Gordon our Rookie of the Match. Two great stories as Jeremy just arrived from Wisconsin with more than a little previous experience and Fougere is just one of many VFMA men who are literally infiltrating our ranks.

Thanks to the Hibos for being the gracious host once again.
