THE 3RD ANNUAL VARSITY MATCH BREAKFAST, TO BE HELD AT THE MANCHESTER PUB AT 1941 WEST BROADWAY IN VANCOUVER AT 8:00AM ON DECEMBER 7TH, 2017

Rugby fans amongst VOCS membership (and who would that leave out?) will not want to miss a huge English breakfast and the Varsity Match on a big screen to cheer one up as Winter exerts its dark charms upon Vancouver. In line with last year, local rugger types from local rugger teams will be invited in order to give the whole event a heartier atmosphere and, no doubt, cheer the heart of the publican.

There is one hitch in this event. The ladies’ Varsity Match, by the calculation of we at VOCS, starts at 3:30AM B.C. time, being 11:30AM English time. We have profound doubts that the Manchester Pub can induce kitchen staff and servers to come in before 3:30AM to deal with what would likely be a rather small crowd. There will be negotiations with the pub about perhaps playing a recording of the ladies’ match after the gentlemens’ match is over. Look for information on this in a later OB, please.

There is no admission charge. You just have to pay for your breakfast. Yum…..
