Years with LPRFC: 1970 – 1980
How did you first start playing for LPRFC? In an effort to depressurize in medical school I joined a community theater group, The Old Town Players. At a certain point in the play’s run, all of a sudden Mike Byrne finished a scene and threw himself on a couch backstage, looking completely spent. “What’s the matter, Mike?” “Rugby” he said. So I knew I had to play.
What is your favorite memory from your LPRFC career? The founding of CWRFC one winter night at Jerry’s house. Anat consider ourselves co-founders; she played for a couple of seasons.
What is something you love about Chicago? Having spent most of my life in the East, I loved The Shore. When I got off the bus in 1968 at Abbott Hall, 710 Lake Shore, I took a look at the lake across the street and said “Wow”
Do you participate in any LPRFC Old Boy events? Great 50th celebration at the Zoo
