Friday, and Saturday October 14 - 15, 2022, are the dates to celebrate Ebb Tide Rugby Club's 50th year. The books have arrived and will be distributed, over the next several weeks, to those who have pre-purchased. Books are also available to anyone else who is interested and will be available for sale at the Friday and Saturday events.
There will be a player only social starting at 7 pm Friday, October 14, at McCall's Sequoia Centre, 4665 Falaise Drive. This will offer an opportunity for active and former members as well as “friends” of Ebb Tide from other Cascadia Masters Rugby Union clubs to share some cheer and trade stories.
On Saturday afternoon there will be matches played on Wallace Field at the University of Victoria. Depending on attendance we hope to have an under-60's and an over-60's match along with some refreshments. There will be a banquet on Saturday evening for players, their partners and other friends of the Ebb Tide. The Four Points by Sheraton in Langford, 829 McCallum Road (250-474-6063), is the banquet location.

I have secured a Shotgun Start, which requires 64 players. We pay for 64 regardless, so we need everyone to bring in some players. Outside players are welcome as it brings dollars in that are not out of the Ebb Tide Players pockets.
Cost is $70.00 and includes 9 holes of golf (BestBall) with a shotgun start. The price includes door prizes, a beer and dinner prepared by our Chef Vahid and he is also hosting the after golf get together at his home. Single registrants will be matched up with other singles. Prizes for Men and Ladies Long Drive and Closest to the Pin. There will also be a mystery prize for an Ebb Tider’s hidden score. Register early and bring Friends, it will be a fun day!
If any one can secure some prizes, please secure them and get them to me ASAP! Any Trophy winners from last Tournament, please bring those in and leave them with an Executive Member. There will be a special prize for the Member that brings in the most paid guests.
