Sad News! I have a report that Beach Alumnus, Peter Judd passed away last Sat. Peter is a former student and player of mine and at 53, his life is far too short. Our deepest condolences extended to friends and family. Apparently Peter suffered a fall a while ago and was unconscious for some time. It seems that while he did regain his faculties he never truly recovered and passed last Saturday. He leaves a wife Theresa and 2 boys 13 and 9! Peter’s brother, Gregg, who has been a member of BBC for a long time and was on the Board of Directors a while ago, has set up a GOFUNDME Trust fund for Peter’s boys education. If U would like to donate find Judd Children Trust Fund at Gofundme site. Peter attended Laurier C.I. and played several seasons with the Beach. Our prayers are with the family as they say goodbye today.

Rugby Auction Sat December 2nd, 2017 @ the Club – Silent Auction 2-5 – Live Auction 5-6
The season is over and by all accounts another enjoyable and successful one it was. Different at times and not always quality rugby but entertaining with the addition of some new faces we look forward to next season! However we still have some celebrating to do!!!!
The action ends for another season!
Beach 2’s – Ended on a high note with a large victory over the Cru. Physical game but with the “right” attitude.BOTH teams had the correct idea in that they both had hand made trophies presented to themselves from which they could drink!!! The best “swap” of the day was when Cameron Morgan left as touch judge to be replaced by a young female. !!!!Noisy sideline during the Cup……
Beach 1’s Cup Final – One of the fastest and most physical games I have seen in long time. as distinct underdogs I feel we gave a terrific effort. We came back in the second half to tie it up 27-27 and had a legitimate shot at a win, but not to be as the final was 40-27 Brantford. Difficult to score when the set pieces were not stable enough to generate lots of quality ball and we seemed to lose focus in the very late stages of the game. 5 Yellow cards to us and 3 to Brantford would lead one to believe that the refereeing was not at the same standard as the game itself!, Entertaining, exciting,only the second time in 17 attempts have we lost the Final!!! Excellent crowd of Beach supporters although Union officials did their best to interfere with our enjoyment of the day ,but not to dwell on that just now! Pics on website soon!
Alumni Fall Dinner – Great time last Thurs. as 5 originals joined Ken Bingham and Hasher McMurray in becoming Capped with our new Beach Caps! Present were Gord Forbes, Don and Roger Oliver, Sam Singer and Tom Redwood. Also capped were Gerry deClute and Jack Baird as having our 2 major sponsors for such a long and continuous time( since mid-seventies!) Ian McConvey had the group in stitches with his presentation of the Caterer Award to current 1st team player, Chris Hewitt aka The Tooth Fairy/Whyte Whale. Congratulations!
