* OPRFC hosted its first Engage charity clinic for kids and mentors of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Tucson. More than fifty participants and volunteers showed up for a great day of rugby education and fun. Each child received an athletic bag containing a rugby ball, water bottle and t-shirt. Afterwards, everyone enjoyed delicious Mexican food courtesy of Chef Michael Powell, who is also a Big Brother. 

OPRFC is in the process of forming a committee to organize and fund future Engage events. For more information, email or check it out.
