Been several days chock full of rugby and reunions here in Missoula! Scott got to reconnect with some college teammates (Colin and Ashby) and we had a great time watching the matches and joining in the festivities.
Rugby gatherings never disappoint, bringing together such a fun community of genuine people (many in spectacular costumes). It doesn’t matter if you are old or young, a guy in a tutu, a woman with a moustache, or if you are roaming around in an inflatable pig costume. There is a place for everyone, everyone plays well together, and no one seems to question anyone’s choice of self-expression. It’s a pretty good model for society!
Anyway, a few pics from the festival as we roll out of town to meet up with Bethany and Will!
Colin (left) played at Oxy with Scott…no shortage of good stories with these guys.
The Saturday night party. Gives a little sense of the size of the Fest.
At the field. They had 8 pitches set up to accommodate dozens of teams from as far away as Alaska.
We ended our time in Missoula by hiking Mt Jumbo with Colin. The wind was fairly spectacular, but the view from the top was well worth the trek!
