High Country Alumni Weekend – 40th Anniversary Celebration

High Country Alumni weekend was a blast and a great way to start the Fall 2015 season! Many thanks to the players, friends, and families that came out to enjoy the rugby action and to the Brewhouse Café for hosting a great post match social. This was an opportunity to look back upon our team’s history and appreciate what fuels a High Country member – not just beer, but a sense of honor and the friendships that last well after our regular playing days. The High Country Grey (Old Boys) came out to a fast start in the match and were able to hold off a late run by the actives team to find themselves enjoying a well earned victory. We are looking forward to seeing The Grey play again together in the future and at the next annual holiday party in December. Cheers brothers!
