Games Broadcasted

What everyone will get from your captains is a web link, that will be to the official radio station of the rugby event.  Yes, games ARE PLAY BY PLAY during the weekend.  This is with the help of a 3rd building on the main pitch with a broadcast tower 35 feet above the main field that is use for any radio or TV footage. The crews love it, because now they are nice and toasty on cold, windy or rainy days with this indoor booth high above the field for great “Play by Play” game calling.


So your families and friend’s will have a chance to hear how your team is doing over the weekend.  So if your team is from the 4 corners of the USA, Canada or anywhere else on this planet, if someone has Internet, they can listen to the games on the web.


This is with some help with local radio along with THE CAT, Wayne State’s radio broadcasting class. Our home games each fall are also “Play by Play”.


If things go like last year, there was a Saturday Night Rugby Show for 1 hour after sundown to let all fans know what time your games are played on Sunday, along with a final show after the championship game on Sunday afternoon.


So besides hundreds of fans packing the main field for the championship games, it is simply unknown how many people from all these teams listen to the games during the weekend.


Besides the new broadcast tower, other improvements to the rugby park over the fall are a new road that runs between the main field and field #4 and field #5.  This road now goes to Hwy 15 or 7th Street.  Now we have access off of the highway and 3 motels are now only 1 block form the complex along with Mc Donald’s and Pizza Hut.


The parking lot has a brand new layer of asphalt and a “tarmac” area by the clubhouse.  Our clubhouse area now has asphalt all around it and a 6-foot wide sidewalk for 50 yards to the jogging trail.  It looks great, and now some nice solid footing for grandparents making there way up to the clubhouse or those great bleacher seats at the 50-yard line.
