SU Rugby Alumni at Saranac

posted May 22, 2015, 11:24 AM by SURFC Alumni

Hammerhead Elite,

It has been quite a memorable 45th anniversary for the Syracuse University Rugby Alumni. Let’s build on this momentum and bring a 45th anniversary alumni squad to compete at Saranac this summer. Those of you who have played before, I am sure that you need only a minor nudge to commit again. For those who we have not seen in the past few years, please call up your buddies and book a room. If you need help with any of that, contact me ( I hope to get the players on an email list so we can coordinate our travel. It was 2012 that we won the social division so it is time to step up in the club bracket and put on a show in the final match of the weekend.

If you have not already done so, sign up for the 45th anniversary team email list using this link: For more information on the competitive SUWRFC Saranac team, contact Kristin Sutton ( 

We have a competitive team entered in the open men’s division. Games will be played on Saturday (August 1) and continue to Sunday (August 2). We are lining up a party open to Syracuse area rugby alumni, likely for Saturday night. More information will follow to the team email list. Since we could not reserve a spot for the social division, we are only entering 1 team this year. Although playing time is not guaranteed, roster depth (especially in the front row) is vital to our success. If you end up wishing for additional playing time, we trust that you will make up for it with the endless list of events over the weekend. If you play competitive front row in the tournament, rewards will be provided to show our appreciation.

Accommodations can be booked at hotels or campgrounds in or near Lake Placid and Saranac Lake. Note that hotel room rates are high so get a group together and split rooms as necessary.
