January 16 Cagers Huddle Canceled

Posted by tbgordon@hotmail.com on January 4, 2022 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

The Cagers Huddle originally scheduled for January 16th, prior to the Wisconsin game, has been canceled. This results from RU Athletics' updated policy that no in-person events are to be held (exception: game attendance) during the month of January 2022. Whether this policy is relaxed during February will be decided later. The Cagers executive board will be discussing the possibility of conducting a virtual Huddle (via Zoom) like those we conducted during 2020. More information on that is coming soon. Also, until further notice, we've decided to not have a Cagers table for future home games. This is also subject to change pending the health situation. Remember that masks must be worn at all games and proof of vaccination is required prior to entry. Only soft drinks and water will be sold at the concession stands.
