Thanks to all that came to the festivities this weekend, it was great to see the mix of old-school and new school.
Props to those who made the journeys from Seattle, Chicago, London and Hong Kong, as well as those more local who worked magic with their schedules or found sitters etc so they could join in the fun.
Impressively 4 of 6 founding members were in attendance on Saturday for the dinner at Brick, but on Friday at Quinn’s we recognized a quite lengthy list of members and alum that have given 10 or more years of service to the club. Click here for the list if you have not seen it yet.
In another reflection of how the club has grown, and how it is very often about much more than playing and going home, just take a look at the CPR Legacy Kids team sheet.
The 15th Anniversary All Star teams were also announced on Friday – click here for that list.
One of the more fun parts was checking out the slideshow – so if you missed that, please click here.
Thanks again to all who participated, and to those who made it happen! If you want to see some photos from the weekend, click here.
Now it’s almost time to get back on the pitch for the spring leg of the season.

At this weekend’s 15th Anniversary festivities we initiated a new award – one in recognition of commitment, loyalty and longevity. We will recognize additional members at the end of season dinners from now on. (Props to alum James Petrie for spurring this idea in October). Please welcome the inaugural group of CPR Members who have given 10 or more years of service to the club:
Willy receives his award for 10+ years of service
Ali E receives her award for 10+ Years of Service
Ben receives his award for 10+ years of service
(PS Our record keeping isn’t most precise when it comes to things like this, so it was on a best efforts basis. Please reach out to Drew if you feel yo have been accidentally overlooked)
