Registration is open for Boston’s Gay Kickball League

Registration to participate in Boston’s Gay Kickball league opens today. Due to its increasing popularity, there will be three leagues: Division A is the most competitive, Division B is described as intermediate, and Division C is for those who are new to the sport and / or are just looking to have fun.

Registration is the same price for all – the different leagues play at staggered times on Sundays, starting April 9th. Due to feedback from last year, the league will not host games (if necessary) the weekend of PVD Pride and this year’s National Tournament will be hosted Memorial Day Weekend in San Antonio.

For More Info / Register Click Here

Early bird registration ($75) is available now through February 22nd and saves you $10. Aside from saving a bit of cash, registering early guarantees you a spot in a league that is very popular and certain to fill-up. You can register individually or as a team.

Before the seasons starts check out Ms. Gay Kickball, a drag contest for any Boston-based athletes that want to represent their team in a drag race for the crown on Saturday, April 4th at Club Cafe (click the link above for details and to register if interested).

Head of the Charles Regatta is this weekend

HOCRThe Head Of The Charles Regatta (HOCR) is a Boston area tradition that dates back to 1965 and has evolved into a massive two-day rowing competition that draws more than 11,000 athletes and 400,000 spectators, making it the largest rowing event in the world.

The 2019 HOCR takes place this Saturday and Sunday. The forecast suggests plenty of sun with Sunday being the warmer of the two days and thankfully for the rowers, very little wind. If you’ve not been to this premiere rowing events, head down to the Charles River to cheer on these amazing athletes.

The organizers have created a great website that includes more information about the races, maps and FAQs. You can learn more by visiting the official HOCR website, www.hocr.org.
