    HARC & Houston Roughnecks Forge Partnership

    By Sallie Buckner 10/11/2016, 1:00pm CDT

    Roughnecks Join HARC

    The Houston Athletic Rugby Club and the Houston Roughnecks have joined forces for the 2016-2017 season and beyond.  The goal is to share resources such as coaches and players to field competitive sides in the TRU's D1 and D1b competitions as well as qualify and play for the Bingham Cup in 2018. 

    "HARC has been inclusive since its formation," says HARC President David Yeoman.  "This partnership is a simple demonstration of our belief that rugby is a 'game for all' and falls in line with our vision to promote and grow rugby as leaders in the local rugby community."

    The team will play as the Roughnecks in International Gay Rugby (IGR) events such as the Bingham Cup. 

    The Roughnecks formed in 2002 as Houston's first specifically inclusive rugby club and competed independently for several years in the TRU.

    Both teams are excited to see our rugby family grow and look forward to the 2016-2017 season.

    HARC Gives Back

    For many of us, the month of November usually includes feasting, four-day weekends, football games, rugby practices, floats, family reunions, or the start of the Holiday festivities.

    Thanksgiving is an expression of gratitude, gather of unity, and reflection upon all the gifts (family, friends, and health) that we are fortunate to have.  By “giving-thanks” we choose to extend ourselves and give to others in need. 

    HARC is excited to share and welcome all team players, friends, fans, and family, to participate in our upcoming November community activities.  

    1. Food Drive:  Tuesday, November 1, Thursday  November 3, Tuesday November 8, and Thursday November 10.   For two weeks, at normally scheduled Tuesday and Thursday HARC practices, HARC will be collecting non- perishable and can food items to bring to the local Houston Food Bank.   
    2. HARC Volunteer night at local Houston Food Bank:    MONDAY, NOV 14, 6-9 pm.  HARC will bring in our items collected from the food drive to donate and volunteer as a group at the Food Bank.  All volunteers are welcome, including children, age 6 and above.
    3. Annual HARC Thanksgiving Potluck:  MONDAY, NOV 21, 7-10 pm.  A long standing and favorite event of the HARC club and members, we are excited to continue this annual tradition.  Guests are to share their favorite Thanksgiving dish and enjoy  a very large and delicious feast at a local Houston vender.  To conclude a month of Thanks, HARC grants discount admission price with donation of a toy for the national charity Toys for Tots.

    Sign up information and forms will be available closer to date via social media and website.  For any further information or questions, please contact HARC Social Chair and event organizer, Teresa Pavljuk (TP) at tpavljuk@gmail.com .
