Flag Tournament at Grimsby
Laura and Martin present the first Niagara Flag Rugby tournament of the year in Grimsby. They have about 34 players signed up for the flag program and they took on teams from St. Catharines, Niagara on the Lake, Niagara Falls and Fort Erie. We parked over 60 cars on the lawn.
This is Laura with the junior players.
And Martin this the senior players
And here are a few pictures from the action.

What a great feeling.
My first try.
Lots of action
This is the debut of the new Grimsby haka.
Thanks Laura and Martin. Next tournament June 20 in Niagara Falls.
It has been said that football (meaning soccer) is a gentlemen's game played by hooligans while rugby is a hooligan's game played by gentlemen. Thus we are the Grimsby Gentlemen and I am the president of the Grimsby Gentlemen Rugby Football Club for 2009,2010,2011,2012, 2013 and 2014 (nobody wants the job).
