Unfortunately with Peel going back in to COVID-19 stage 2 we are forced to cancel our 1st Annual CanTag Festival. The health and safety of our members and fans is always our number one priority so at this time there is no other option.

Home Facilities Confirmed
We are pleased to announce that we have reached a tentative agreement with Brampton RFC to share facilities until at least the end of the 2021 season. This makes Brampton RFC our official home for training, matches, functions etc. All sports teams need a home and this agreement allows us make use of the rugby specific facilities, including clubhouse, field, training gear etc. We thank Brampton RFC for their warm welcome and we look forward to enjoying a fantastic relationship with them for years to come. Special thanks to Sean McMullen who has led the charge in finding a home and worked tirelessly with the team at Brampton RFC to reach an agreement.
Spreading The Word
Hopefully you have all had chance to check out the team’s new social media accounts on Twitter (@ONGreybeards), Instagram (@ontariogreybeards), and the existing Facebook group (Ontario Greybeards Masters Rugby League). We also have a shiny new website which is the official home of all things Greybeard (ontariogreybeards.com). Please like, follow, share, visit these accounts as this helps advertise our team and will assist in bringing in new players, opponents, and sponsors.
Over the past month the team has been busy courting potential sponsors in an effort to raise funds for the team that will go towards the purchase of on and off field kit. With a stretch target of $8,000, we have already raised $6,000! This is an incredible achievement and with only $2,000 left to go, we are confident we will reach our goal. Special thanks to Dan Tate and Craig Soulsby who have secured the sponsors. If you have any leads on potential sponsors please let us know.
New Kit, New Colours
As we embark on a new era the Ontario Greybeards will get a fresh new look. Following detailed consumer research, the decision has been made to update our blue, gold, red colour scheme and replace it with grey, black, white. These colours were shown to resonate with consumers more than the existing colours and will allow us to better market the team through the sale of on and off field kit to our growing fanbase. It was also shown that adopting a grey-based palette would better synergise our branding as it directly links the colours to our name and logo.
Work has begun on designing and sourcing our new kit. The plan is for each member to receive the following pieces; jersey, shorts, socks, hoodie, golf shirt, training shirt, backpack, boot bag, gumshield. All pieces are customized with the Greybeards logo and custom ordered for your number and size. The order will be placed shortly so to guarantee your shirt number and size ensure you become a member by November 1st.
Can Tag Festival | Save The Date
We are planning to see off the 2020 season with an end of year Can Tag Festival. Initial concept is to have 3, 4, or 5 teams play in a group tournament so everyone can showcase their skills and have some fun. This will also be a great fundraising opportunity for the team. We will publish more details shortly but provisionally we are planning for this on October 18th. Needless to say that this is dependent on Municipal, Provincial, and National COVID-19 regulations.
We are in discussions with two teams, one from the UK and one from the US, regarding a tri-club event to be staged in the US and Canada in 2021. Talks are in the early stages but this promises to be a fantastic opportunity to play games, build inter-club relationships, and market the Greybeard brand. All registered Greybeard playing members will be eligible to take part.

Sunday September 13th we will be hosting a tailgate party to celebrate the start of the NFL season. Training will begin at Brampton Rugby Club at 12pm sharp before putting down the ball and picking up a beer (or non-alcoholic beverage for those who are driving).
We will be showing an NFL game in the clubhouse while Michael and Sean take each other on with a chilli cook-off. The best chilli will earn its chef the inaugural title of Greybeards Chilli Champion!
Anyone who can make a good (or at least edible) chilli is encouraged to join in the challenge......the more the merrier.
Please bring your own plates and cutlery to enjoy the chillis, which will be served with salads and a side.
We will also be taking donations to cover the cost of the food, with any remaining money going towards the team's fund.

- Bar is cash only
- If you drink, don't drive
