Summer 2007


Alumni gather to support Palmer and rugby

Alumni had a chance to support Palmer and its rugby team during the 2007 Sunshine Tour, Feb. 23-25 in Deerfield Beach, Fla. The weekend began with 12 hours of continuing education presented by Fred Schofield, D.C., Davenport ’81, who donated all of the proceeds to the Palmer Rugby Endowment, one of the College’s top five endowments.

Participants also watched the Palmer College’s Rugby Club dominate two divisions and took in the annual Rugby Club v. Palmer Olde Boys rugby team game. Scott Casteel, D.C., Davenport ’86, was named most valuable player (MVP) for the Palmer Olde Boys, and Davenport Campus student Jeremy Blackwood was named MVP for the Palmer Rugby Club. Members of Palmer’s four National Collegiate championship teams—from 1972, 1973, 1978 and 1979, were honored during a special ceremony.

Next year’s seminar and rugby event will again be held in Deerfield Beach, Feb. 22-24. For more information, go to Plan to attend the 2010 Davenport Campus Homecoming, where Palmer rugby will celebrate its 50th anniversary.
