Are you over the age of 35? Did you play for Baltimore RFC, Chesapeake RFC, BACON,
or Towson Old Boys? Did you play before rubber scrum caps and protective gear were
part of the regular uniform, and you couldn't leave the field unless you were unconscious?
Do you miss watching or playing rugby?
Baltimore-Chesapeake RFC has a growing membership of Old Boys who want to be involved
again on a social or athletic level. Contact Wade Gowl for a schedule and current

Classic Old Boy Picture from the 70's...
The two gentleman standing are Bud Aldrich, and Dennis Murphy, who is leaning with
his back against the beer truck. The guys kneeling are (from left to right) Bill
Motscheidler, John Metcalf, Joe Austin, (he worked for Natty Boh at the time), Burt
Hopkins and Ingo Lahnemann. We know Burt liked to drink, but name me a rugby player
who doesn't. We also know he was a hooker who didn't know how to hook the ball,
but instead, he would kick the crap out of the ankles of his opposite. This picture
is rumored to have been used by Natty Boh as a billboard at one time.
We have learned that Bill Motscheidler is no longer with us, so we would like to
extend our condolences. We do value our pioneers.
On an up note - Ingo Lahnemann is well and living in Tunkhannock , Pa. He has expressed
his appreciation at being contacted and looks forward to renewing old, and making
