Good Afternoon Everyone,
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 the USA Rugby season has been cancelled. In order to help end this pandemic as soon as possible, the Santos practices have been canceled. We will keep an eye on what the State, Feds and USA Rugby are doing and resume practices as soon as reasonably possible.
The Union is going to try and have a NM & AZ playoff outside of USA Rugby’s National Championships. However, we cannot resume practices until USA rugby reinstates our CIPP insurance. I encourage everyone to do what they can to stay fit/improve their fitness during this downtime. I hope everyone and their families can stay safe and avoid this virus.

On the Rugby front, Izzy and Ryan represented the Santos at the Arizona Rugby Fest earlier this month. They played with the Union’s travel side, the Caballeros, and went 2-1. Put it in your calendar for next year.
The annual general meeting is happening on February 1st at noon. We have some big things we need to address and an important year to plan for. Please make it if you can.

Oh Good Evening!
First off, the Santos celebrated their third annual Gift Card Drive in December. We collected over 20 cards amounting over $500. Special thanks to Jeremy Lithgow contributing from far, far away and Royce for hosting the holiday party. Attached is a photo of us presenting the cards to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Second, everyone needs to start planning on the following games this spring. First game is March 23rd. There are a couple tournaments coming up including Sand Rugby in and Celtics in May. These are both 7s events. I attached a poster of the game schedules.
March 2 Sand Rugby in ABQ
March 23 Aardvarks in ABQ
April 6 Brujos in ABQ
April 13 Scorpions in SF
May 4 Celtic 7s in ABQ
Thirdly, practice. Yes, I’m talking about practice. Next Saturday, Februrary 23rd, we will be heading up to Vegas to practice with the Vatos. Make it! Also, plan on practice starting soon during the week and Saturday afternoons from now until the Vark game in March.
Vivan Los Santos!
p.s. start running.
