Harlequin Newletter: March 2018


The Harlequin Family


March 2018

Quin v Quin Alumni Day 
Thank you to all who came out and joined us for our Spring Alumni Day! Even though our original opponents backed out at the last minute, the Deuces have grown so much they were able to put on a intrasquad scrimmage. The growth of the Harlequins D2 program in just one short year has been incredible. The team is so grateful for getting in such a good game, and to everyone that came out and celebrated last Saturday at the match! 
18th Annual Dawn White Memorial Golf Tournament

The Harlequins' 18th Annual Dawn White Memorial Golf Tournament will be held May 12th, 2018 at Browns Mill Golf Course! You can follow our event page on Facebook to get updates, and go ahead and register your team here

The annual golf tournament is a FANTASTICALLY FUN way to support women's rugby in Atlanta (see end to find out more about our non-profit rugby club). No matter your experience level, this tournament will be a perfect time to work on your golf game or just have some fun.

- A day of golf (green fee and golf cart)
- Range balls and a gift bag
- Light (delicious) lunch and dinner

What you pay:
$125/ person ($500 for team of 4).

WPL Nationals in Atlanta
WPL Nationals is in Atlanta this year! Teams will be playing from October 24-26. Look out for a new WPL schedule in the next few weeks!
Harlequins Gear Now Available Online! 
You can now buy Harlequins gear from our new online store! While our online offerings are starting off small, we are always looking for suggestions of what Quins, family, friends, and alumni would like to see next! If you have an idea you don't see in the store, please send us a message here.
Help us fundraise this Spring!
We are always working on ways to sustainably fundraise for the club so we can continue to grow! There are a couple different (easy!) ways that you can support the Quins:
  • Use Amazon Smile whenever you're getting your online shopping done. You can set your account to support "Atlanta Harlequins Womens Rugby Football Club" and the club will get money every time you shop! 
  • Order your protein and other workout supplements from Ruck Science! By using the code "ATLANTAHARLEQUINS" when checking out, a portion of your purchase will be donated to the team
Save the Date!
The Harlequins Fall Alumni Weekend will be September 21-23, 2018!
