All Meraloma Club members, and especially Rugby members, will be interested in one of the great moments in amateur team sport history in Canada. Doug Sturrock, co-author of the history of the Meraloma Club (“Once a Mermaid”), has completed his history of rugby in Canada called “It’s a Try”. No rugby player should be without this book. As a very special arrangement, Doug will be at the Clubhouse on the afternoon of April 1, 2017 (home game day for rugby) to sell and sign copies of this book. It is 1100 pages with over 400 images of various sizes and sells for $65.00 (although you cannot put a price on this unique masterpiece). This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for all you diehards so smash your piggybanks and come to the Club for an afternoon of rugby. This is NOT an April Fool’s prank. We are all very proud that Doug hails from our Club. His dedication to the game and the preservation of its history is unparalleled in Canada. See you then.
