Harvey Januusen Award – Nominations now being accepted

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!

Great weekend! – Sat Cup semi finals–Beach defeats Scottish 25-17. The lads seem to be rounding into form with a terrific victory over a tough Scottish side who must soon be wondering what they have to do to win a Cup?? Not only was the play a level up but the sideline support was superb as several hundred Beach fans roared approval to only a handful of Scottish supporters. It indeed makes a difference!!! And even the weather cooperated.!!

Beach 2’s – Sunday saw the Beach 2’s roar to life with a resounding 62-10 thumping of the Bay Street Pigs to advance to the Consolation Gee Gage Cup Final on Sat. Opponent undetermined but a super effort from the guys which now has us represented by both teams on Sat at McCormick Cup Day!!Jeff Tomlinson, man of the Match and quality games from Bushe and The Dude!

Notes: Referee and Alum Haley says he has finally made the grade by doing a 7th vs 8th place college game on Sat! He’s there!!!

Canada A – Despite a try from Beacher Lucas Rumball, Canada A lose in Uraguay to USA Selects. There are “rumblings” that Lucas may be available for sat Cup Final?

Rugby Announcement! – Rugby Ontario announces that Kyle Nichols of Balmy Beach will be inducted into the Ontario Rugby Hall of Fame in Nov 25, 2017!

Also Being inducted is the Balmy Beach 1’s of the undefeated, untied 1980-1981 Cup winning squads! This includes the players of the Owen Sound victory in the Cup run of 1980!!! Congratulations to all. The dinner is Nov 25th–Details to follow.

5th Annual Lucky Lucy Casino Night – Thurs Sept 7th $125.00 – Toronto Hunt Club

Fund raiser for Cystic Fibrosis!!!

Last games of August – 2 wins and a loss

Given some interesting logistics the Academy 1 players and Beach 2’s actually switched roles for this outing and it proved to be a wise decision. At noon the vaughn Yeomen who are quite strong played our Academy(but really Beach 2’s) and we lost a very close match 27-24. The actual Academy 1 Squadhad a great match and ended their season on a positive note by beating the Markham Irish 2’s

Beach 1’s also continued in a upward trend by handling the Irish 49-24. The negative aspect is a red card for Mark MacSween.

Academy 1 finish the season out of the playoffs but in a respectable 5th spot. Academy2’s finish in 6 position.

 

It seems that all of my info come from the reprobates in the attachment!!!!

Alum Aaron Mittler reports that the 5th Annual Lucky Lucy Casino Night is booked for Thurs Sept 7th at the Toronto Hunt Club.

This very special event is named after Aaron’s daughter, Lucy who has cystic fibrosis. The event is a fund raiser for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

It is a “dress up” affair, tickets are $125 each and include dinner, 2 drinks, access to the Casino games and auctions.

Many Beach friends usually attend as it has been a very successful evening in the past. Tickets can be purchased at the link that I believe I have included. Great cause, great evening!

As a second row he as cleverly cropped his ears out of all photo’s. He has 30 years of Rugby starting in Ottawa High-School and club play with Ottawa Beavers. In 1999, he commenced wearing the blue and gold of the BBC and played 10 seasons – primarily with the Mighty Thirds of TRU legend. Chris has a deep commitment to the club and rugby is a passion. Chris is a multi-sport junior coach (rugby, hockey and baseball) with his Respect in Sport and IRB Level 1 certification. He started coaching junior rugby at the Beach in 2015 and is committed to making the experience a fun and engaging way to bring kids into the rugby community and grow our great game.

I greatly look forward to supporting Chris in the transition to his new role and continuing in my capacity as treasure for the program in 2017.

For those of you already committed to the program for 2017 I thank you in advance for your continued support. We are in the hunt for additional coaching support for 2017 with a very specific need for help at U16. We have lots of need for additional help outside coaching and anyone interested in assisting with the program should contact Chris . We have on-going needs for; team/parent communication, equipment management, fund raising, field painting, tour management etc”…Jim Drohan

Another excellent evening! – Rugby Ontario fetes Hall of Famers and League Medal Winners!

Beach Blue and Gold is in much evidence as Red Lipsett, Tony McGann and David Lougheed are inducted into Provincial rugby Hall of fame! 50-60 Beach Alumni turned out at the Maples Banquet Hall in Mississagua on Sat in this gala event.A well deserved compliment to the inductees as we were honoured to share the time with the families and friends of our comrades. Peeter Oolup spoke on Red’s behalf and Brian Spanton for Tony and as expected, did a terrific job! The evening was topped off by a new RO Award, the President’s award which went to Haydn Gage and Conor McCann for their heroic efforts to resuscitate Eric Shannon earlier in the season. Truly an appropriate tribute on a super evening!
