New Gym Sponser

Northern Colorado and Rain Tree Athletic club team up.

I would like to officially introduce you all to our new gym, Rain Tree Athletic Club.  Rain Tree is located on the NW corner of Drake and Shields where the old Pulse used to be.  The GM, Martin Johns, at Rain Tree has been playing and following rugby since he was 5 years old so he understands what we need as rugby players when it comes to our fitness.

Martin would like to invite the rugby team to an after practice social at his gym this upcoming Tuesday so that he can introduce himself and the gym to the entire team.  So on Tuesday the 2nd we will have practice in Loveland at 6pm and have a social at Rain Tree immediately after practice at 8:15pm.  There will be a bar and food available within the gym for all your eating and drinking needs.

Guys Rain Tree and Martin are working hard to support the needs of our club.  There is going to be a lot more competing for positions this year so it’s time to now take it upon your self to get in shape, Rain Tree is giving us the tools. 

This is a required Social Event for this team (first NoCo Rugby T-shirts to be given away at this event to all those that show)
