NM Brujos to run practice tomorrow, holiday pub crawl this Saturday, and Rugby is a Drag...Show tick

The New Mexico Brujos Holiday season (and off-season) is fully underway, with two events scheduled this week, and the years biggest fundraiser only a little over a month away. This time of year it's important to stay engaged with the squad and work with the team to find new ways to encourage participation and recruitment.

Practice Tommorrow

Tomorrow, Thursday December 12th, 2019, the New Mexico Brujos and the ABQ Borderlands squad will be hosting a practice/run at UNM Johnson Field at 6 PM. Come knock off some of that holiday rust as the team begins to look toward 2020. The more the merrier.

Annual Holiday Pub Crawl this Saturday!

This year's annual Brujos Pub Crawl is slated for this Saturday, December 14th, 2019. This year's crawl will kick off at 6 PM at O'Niell's Irish Pub located at: 4310 Central Ave SE, Albuquerque, NM 87108. At 7 PM the crawl will proceed west, visiting multiple drinking establishments on the way to Monte Vista. Expect to spend a little more than half an hour at each location. Estimated arrival time at Monte Vista is 11pm. The new Art bus will be used for transportation. The Art is free to take until Jan 2nd of next year. The Brujos will be carrying the high desert trophy in procession. This year's pub crawl item of the week is a nativity scene character. It can be anything as long as it's a nativity scene. Contest for funniest, most traditional, and fanciest contributions. Judging will be done at the end of the night, as well as a group picture. All players, their families, potential recruits as well as old boys and non-players are welcome to attend. See you there!
