Supporting US Women's Seven's AT USA Sevens ...

This just in from the women's seven's program ...

Hello Again!

The holidays are past, and so is their disruptive influence on one’s rugby
priorities…so, let’s talk!

The coaching and management of the US7s team are very excited about the
initiation of the Booster Club. Because of our delayed start this fall, the
holidays, and some bureaucratic hurdles we didn’t realize we would need to
jump, we aren’t able to offer all of the activities we were hoping for at
the San Diego Tournament. BUT there is still fun to be had and some central
coordination for it. I am your contact pre-San Diego, and Sheri Hunt will
be on the ground there for any last minute questions.

If you are going to the tournament, we have reserved a block of rooms at the
team hotel, the Holiday Inn. If you would like to stay with like-minded
folk, please use the contact info below and tell them you are reserving
through the US7s International Women's
Rugby Booster Club.
Reservations: 1-800-287-0037 OR (619) 291-5720

As far as activities go, there will be a get-together on Friday evening,
February 9th, in the Holiday Inn bar/lobby area from 6-8. It looks as
though the coaching and management staff of the team will be able to make an
appearance. If you are a booster club member you’ll get a drink coupon at
the social—see Sheri on site!

There will be an opportunity at both the tournament and the social to
register for the Booster Club. However, if you are not able to go to the
tournament, don’t despair! In the nature of 7s, the more the merrier, and I
am happy to oblige and register you via e- or snail-mail. All members will
be included in emails regarding team events, tournaments, results, and any
special opportunities to be involved with the team. Any level of financial
participation is welcome. If you are able to contribute more, this is what
you can expect from your annual dues:

$100—a US Women’s 7s t-shirt
$250—the t-shirt plus a US Women’s 7s back pack
$500 or more—both of the above plus a team jersey

It’s our goal to have as many people on the Booster Club roster as possible
by the San Diego tournament. We’ll send you a rugby ball keychain if you’re
on the list by then. If you are still recovering financially from the
holidays, though, Hong Kong is coming up this spring and the team will have
large expenses for that tournament, too, so it’s never too late!

If you are ready to get on board, send your name, email, and snail mail
address to, or call 508-662-5875. Send checks
payable to USA Rugby, with US Women’s 7s on the memo line, to me at:

If you have any questions, use the above contact information. Thanks, and
the team says thanks, too. Feel free to forward this to others who may be
