The UBRAA is happy to announce details for our 40th UB Rugby Alumni Weekend being held at UB during the weekend of May 5-7, 2023. This year we are continuing our new tradition of honoring a team or individual from UB Rugby history and inducting them into our Hall of Fame. This year we are honoring the UB Rugby teams of 1998-2003 who notched several big playoff wins including a Northeast Playoffs upset against Dartmouth in 2001 and the 2002 NYS Rugby Conference D1 Championship.
Our Alumni Weekend '23 tentative schedule is as follows: Friday, May 5 - Social at Forty Thieves Bar from 6:30-9:30pm. Forty Thieves is owned and operated by Brian "Scanz" Scanlon, who played on the 1998-2003 team. Saturday, May 6 - Saturday is a rugby day! UB Rugby will be hosting a home match to show off the development of the program. Game time, location, and opponent TBA. Saturday, May 6 - Saturday night we head to Jackrabbit Buffalo from 6-10pm for our annual UBRAA Alumni Banquet where we will enjoy food and drink as we celebrate UB Rugby, and induct the 1998-2003 UB Rugby team into the UB Rugby Hall of Fame.
