    Every five years the Harlequin Family, young,old and significant others,  gather.  It is a time to recall of our beginnings, championships, tours...and stories you had to be there to beleive.  It is a time to relish what the Harlequins have accomplished growing from a playing side , to having the foresight of creating one of the best facilities in the country, to creating a one of a kind mentoring program.  And to look to the future as we plan to expand our footprint to youth, women, high school and U24 programs.  But most of all, it is a time to be in that most comfortable of places, with the Harlequin Family.

    April 6th will be a full day of rugby action and stories.  Starting with the play off match at 1pm against Rocky Gorge. Rocky is last years victor and again a formidable opponent, but the Quins are up for the challenge this year.  Crowd support is a huge factor as we saw during the incredible extra time victory of the Home Coming match last fall.  Be there to cheer the Quins players on to victory.  There will be an abbreviated social after the match to allow time to get ready for the evening.

    The night gets underway at 6pm in the Terrace Room at the Comfort Inn on Route 28, less than a 10 minute drive from Founders.  There will be open beer and cash bar.  Dinner will be buffet style with main dishes of roast beef aju, baked breaded chicken and pasta marinara.  The picture show will follow along with recognitions and announcements as we move thru the evening. The adjacent outdoor deck is available for a good cigar with a great friend.

    The Harlequins do have rooms available in the Comfort Inn at a discounted rate.  Call directly for reservations at 412-963-0600.   Note that this is not a typical Comfort Inn location, this one does have the Route 28 Bar and Grill in the facility for food and drink.  It is notable and appreciated that the catering along with the bar and grill are operated by the Harlequins own Tony Sacco.  Many thanks to Tony for making this event possible at the Quin's Family Rate!

    DO NOT ASSUME THAT EVERYONE YOU PLAYED WITH GOT THIS MESSAGE.  We are rebuilding our verified contact list in this new system and not everyone is up to date.  Call or email your teamates to check that they are coming.  If they did not get this invite, have them contact me directly at [email protected] .

    Looking forward to seeing all of you there at yet another unforgettable anniversary!
