Rugby Anniversary postponed until 2021

06/10/2020, 12:15pm CDT

With much deliberation and consideration, we have decided to postpone the 60th anniversary celebration and move it back on year to 2021.  It was a heartfelt decision that did not come easy but we feel was the right move with all things considered.  All rugby alumni should have received a letter from DDDPAT President Dr. Gary Weinstein.  Here's a copy of the letter.  We look forward to seeing you all in 2021. 

Hello, Fellow Palmer Rugby Alumni:

Like many of you, I was looking forward to celebrating 60 years of rugby at Palmer College this fall. Times of uncertainty have led to many changes in our personal and professional lives, and these times require us to adjust our plans for the 60th anniversary of Palmer rugby.

After much thought and consideration, we have decided to postpone our celebration to Homecoming in 2021. The decision was a difficult one, but we know that Palmer rugby is a brotherhood, a sisterhood. The camaraderie that we experience when we are together is not only special; it’s unmatched. This was a deciding factor. Our more than 300 alumni deserve the opportunity to come together, celebrate rugby, honor Palmer College and do so in an environment
that is safe and comfortable for everyone.

So join me on Founder’s Day, September 18, 2021, when we will celebrate the 60th and 61st anniversary of rugby at Palmer. We are all part of a legacy that spans six decades, and I look forward to ushering in the next six with you in 2021.

Be well,

Gary J Weinstein DC
President DDDPAT
