On July 26 at 11:00, the Mid Atlantic Conference Competitions Committee will be meeting in person at Hamilton’s in the Washington DC area.
233 2nd St NW
Washington, DC 20001
The agenda for the meeting includes reviewing and updating several different policies and electing the chairperson for the 2015-2016 term.
The chairperson was originally an appointment made by USA Rugby for a two year term. We are now required to have the current MAC committee members elect the individual to fill this seat on an annual basis.
If you are interested in running for this position, please notify Margaret Dessypris Thomas <firstname.lastname@example.org> of your intent to run, and be prepared to show up in person at this meeting. The incumbent is seeking reelection as well.
If you are interested in becoming a part of the MAC Competitions Committee, those positions are elected/appointed at the CGU and EPRU AGMs that are organized by your respective union’s administration. Please consult with your local rugby union presidents if you have an interest in seeking a position.
While the meeting is open, MAC Club representatives’ attendance is not required.
Congratulations to the following clubs who will represent the Mid-Atlantic Conference in Charlotte NC for National playoffs:
Men’s D1 – Potomac Exiles
Men’s D2 – Rocky Gorge
Men’s D3 – Old Gaelic
Women’s D1 – Pittsburgh Angels
Women’s D2 – Severn River
Congratulations also goes to the MAC Champions for our M-D4 and W-D3 divisions:
Men’s D4 – Whitehorse Rugby
Women’s D3 – Phoenixville Whitehorse
The MAC Competitions Committee is beginning to plan the schedules for the 2015-2016 season.
The men’s clubs are listed here. This reflects the promotion/relegation for 2015 results, announcement of new clubs or teams, and restructuring for D2 and D3 divisions. Please review this list. If you have questions, direct them to your league coordinator.
The women’s clubs are listed here. Coordinators will be reaching out based on the new structure. The committee met and agreed that this is the strongest competition we can put forward. Questions can be directed to your league coordinator.
Our MAC schedule of dates has us planned to release 2015-2016 schedules by the end of June. We are currently waiting for USA Rugby to finalize National Championship dates for 2016 and that may hold us up in the planning process. We would like to avoid the large gap between MAC Championship and the National playoffs that we experienced in 2015.
