March 5, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – This coming weekend, the men host UVic: Valhallians vs the Norsemen, and Academy vs Saxons. The Premier women are home to Bayside as well, so that should be a great day at the club. Sunday, the 3rds host Comox.

The club has been struggling with liquor license issues, so note that while the club is always open Thursday evenings, the bar will be open on the following Thursdays 7-11pm: March 7 and 14, April 18 and 25, May 2 and 9.
