Old Boys Events Coming Up
It was a great old boys game vs Blackthorn at Malvern on April 11. We still need players for Scrum for Six on May 2. Game information and numbers of players needed follows.
Update from Lex 4/15: We now have 16 confirmed for May 2nd at Brandywine and 6 maybes. It would be ideal to have 21-25 players for open subs. We will have some Wilmington players joining us to help.
Please pump this one up! May 2nd at Brandywine:

About Michael Bartone and Scrum For Six
Michael Bartone lost his life in March 2002, during his battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease as it is more commonly referred to, affects 5600 new Americans every year. It is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans have the disease at any given time. Twenty percent of patients diagnosed die within three years of their diagnosis. The Michael Bartone Memorial is dedicated to continuing his battle through contributions to the ALS Association for the purpose of researching a cure for this faceless killer.
As a part of that dedication, in 2003, the first Scrum for Six Rugby Event was held in Michael’s honor. This year, our tradition of Rugby continues as we hold our Thirteenth Annual Scrum for Six on May 2nd, 2015.
