The Rat Bastards of Dallas Touch cordially invite your club to join our first annual summer Touch Rugby competition. Our aim is to introduce the Rugby Clubs of Dallas to FIT Touch football, keeping your players together, fit and active during the summer months, with a very social, but very competitive Touch competition. We are not trying to compete with the regular Rugby or the Sevens competitions.

We will be playing at Lake Highlands, beginning at 7:00pm 6/17/2014 Tuesday for a fun run/practice and the competition starting at 7:00pm Thursday 6/19/2014 and running for six weeks (no game on 7/3/2014) with the winning team to receive a $500 bar tab. Games will be refereed in accordance with International FIT rules (see page 2) which includes a one hand touch.

We are asking that your players register with us for $10 per player, in teams of at least 10 max 12 per game, with two players from each team willing to become referees over time. Wives, girlfriends, sons and daughters are most welcome. Games are played with 6 a side, with unlimited substitutions. We will run the competition for six weeks to gauge interest and commitment and will continue to run if the interest is there. The games will be 12 minute halves with 5 minute break at half time. We are asking that your Club officials and Coaches support us in our venture, and know that it will be of great benefit to the Dallas Rugby Community.

We would like a reply by 6/14/2014. With your support we will make this an enjoyable annual event.

We had a nice showing yesterday. I believe we had about 18 people all day. Excellent touch all day long. Special thanks to the newcomers Joe and Joey!

Don’t forget, Dallas Touch is hosting Craig Martin from Portland, Oregon for the weekend of Aug 24/25. He will be teaching everyone the plays that the United State’s World Cup Touch teams will be using during competition. Everyone of all skills is welcome.

Also, thanks to all of those who have made donations to the organization so far.

We had about 20 people turned up for Thursday night touch at Lake Highlands, a cool evening, the grass was recently cut, but still rock hard. We played 3 teams and we also had a rotating referee for each game. It was a great night and we played till about 8.45.


I’m gonna make that touch! Dallas Touch Rugby on Thursday, June 13, 2013.
