Save the Date! Rugby is a Drag to return this January! Saturday Fall and Winter touch rugby begins!


Dust off your dancing cleats! After a year off due to the Covid epidemic, the New Mexico Brujos and their friends at the NM Black Cat Cultural & Community Center are more than pleased to announce that the very popular Rugby is a Drag (show!) and fundraiser will be returning for a fifth year in January of 2022. Formerly held at Sidewinders, the show next January will be making it's debut at the new NM Black Cat Cultural & Community Center, and, as in year's past, will benefit our friends at Casa Q. Casa Q provides safe living for LGBTQ+ youth through housing, services and advocacy. This year's show will take place on January 22nd, with more details and ticket sales to follow soon, so stay tuned to the New Mexico Brujos website and social media pages for more information and save the date!

 

Fall and Winter Touch Rugby Begins!

The end of the Fall rugby season got you down? Not to worry, Albuquerque Youth Rugby United has you covered! Starting this Saturday there will be a pitch available at North Domingo Baca Park from 10-12 for touch rugby. There will be balls and cones to use.

Please remember that the purpose behind AYRU running touch is to build rugby and recruit. There will be younger players there. Please help them fall in love with rugby. Teach them and be friendly.

Most of the AYRU leadership will be running youth clinics at that time, so we're trusting y'all to be the adults.

And remember - it's touch! Have fun and don't be jerks!

This will run every Saturday hopefully until February, with the exception of Christmas and December 4th which will be Turkey Touch (more on that in the weeks to come). Hope to see you all there!.
