Montgomery County closed the game field on the DC Scandals so we are all going to the D3 game. The address to the D3 game is 20500 Martinsburg Road, Dickerson, MD.
Here are the directions they sent us:
Head down 85 South out of Frederick, take 28 East towards Dickerson, and turn right onto Martinsburg Road after you pass through Dickerson. The Farm is on the right.
There will be a small sign on the road near the entrance
turn onto a dirt road for about 300 feet then pass through a fence
you will come over a slight crest then see the field

Western Suburbs is proud to welcome the following members to the club. Their first practice was a humid, wet one with lots of hitting and they did well.
This is Bryan Baswell. Bryan was recruited by Brad Barker. He's a Marine and is eager to learn the game.
This is Ian Frye. Matt "Lobo" Parr brought him out to try rugby.
This is Wyatt Willis. Wyatt is new to the game of rugby and found out about us on Reddit. He's our first Redditor to join up.
This is JD Lejeune. JD played for four years in Scranton, PA. Very quick.
This is Jean "Frenchy" Miyigando. Frenchy made it out for one practice, sort of, last season. Frenchy is from Benin and is over here as a student and to work on his English. He has played with Village Lions RFC in New York and Loup-Garou Avrankou in Benin.
I submitted this to Embroidme in Chantilly. Size is 3 inches. If you want some embroidery done, hit them up.
