Orlando Rugby Football Club held the Annual General Meeting downtown this past Sunday, August 3rd. The gathering is of monumental importance as it serves as an avenue for every club member to voice his or her opinion on the future leadership and path of the club. After the Executive Committee (Excom) elections the members raised many valid topics including; off-season workout regiments, full time pitch availability, sponsorships, safe practices at future socials along with many other points for discussion. We were very happy to see a fantastic turn out that was preceded and followed by gatherings at our local downtown sponsor, Whiskey Dick’s, and hope for continued support as ORFC establishes itself as “The Face of Rugby in the South”.
Our 2014-2015 EXCOM follows:
President- Jason Hamilton
Vice President- Eric Jacovetti
Match Secretary- Daniel McGann
Treasurer- Thomas Murphy
Social Chair- Christopher Clare
Fundraising Chair- Rinaldo Cartaya III
Development Chair- Steve Profit

Be advised that the first meeting of the 2014-2015 Excom will be held Monday, August 11 at Whiskey Dicks from 7 pm to 9 pm. All interested parties are encouraged to attend.
