NM Brujos host El Paso Saturday in first cup match of the season! Rugby camp continues! Movember!
Let the 2022/23 Rio Grande Rugby Union season begin! The New Mexico Brujos kick off their first and only cup match of the Fall against the El Paso Scorpions this Saturday at 1 PM at Phil Chacon Field South. Having slipped past the Scorps just two weeks ago at High Desert, the NM Brujos will be looking to continue that trend and start their cup season off with a win. This will be their only cup match until the Spring, so it's imperative to bring out a big crowd Saturday to root on the boys in blue. Furthermore it's the last chance to see the Brujos in town this year, as their last action of the fall will see them traveling to AZ for another tournament in early December! The festivities begin at 1 with the social to follow at Monte Vista at 4!
What: NM Brujos vs El Paso Scorpions
When: Saturday, November 12th at 1 PM
Where: Phil Chacon Field South, 7505 Kathryn Ave SE, ABQ, NM 87108

Last year the New Mexico Brujos raised $275, but in past years have raised as much as $600! Let's see if we can top that this year!
Remember If you can't grow a mustache there are other ways to get involved. You can pledge to Movember every day during the month or you can just fundraise and pass on info. Whatever you can do, please do. Let's see those stashes BruMos!
