Forget about Congress and government shutdowns- this is a big weekend in DC because of women’s rugby! Saturday, the Washington Women’s Rugby Football Club will host the Raleigh Venom in a Division 2 matrix match. Sunday, the Furies look to dominate Beantown RFC in the first WPL home game of the season.
Kick-off the weekend Friday night at the #BalanceLife Kick-Off Party at Balance Gym, Thomas Circle. A sponsor of and workout-home to many Furies, Balance is unveiling the renovations of their Thomas Circle location and a rebranded philosophy many of us can relate to- finding balance of work, life, and time to workout. The Kick-Off Party will include a CrossFit Throwdown, photobooth, and free food and drinks. Gym members and non-members are all invited to attend.
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 28
Furies Div 2 vs Raleigh Venom
Location: Heurich Park
Ager Road and Nicholson Street, Hyattsville, MD 20782
From the Metro
The pitch is walking distance from the West Hyattsville Metro Station. Exit the metro and head towards Ager Road (this is across the parking lot and bus bays). Turn left on Ager Road. Continue for about 1/4 mile to Nicholson Street. Make a right onto Nicholson (this is on the opposite side of the road from the metro). Follow the path past the dog park about another 1/4 mile to the field. The games will be on the turf field on the far side of the parking lot.
**For accurate driving directions enter the intersection of “Nicholson Street and Ager Road, Hyattsville, MD” Internet/GPS directions to this field can be very misleading!** From Nicholson and Ager look for the dog park that is visible from the intersection. The driveway leading to parking and the field is next to the dog park off of Nicholson Street. Take this all the way to the end. The turf field has bleachers and a fenced enclosure.
Social: The social will take place at the nearby home of Candace Gingrich-Jones.
