More than 400 guests, a program of festivities spread over two days. Refreshing water games for young and old on Saturday morning, 7-a-side intergenerational matches, then in the evening some tributes to the old, prize giving, a thought for the club’s deceased, before the party is in full swing. music around a good table, on the village square.
50 years is not nothing, part of a small section for young people under the impetus of Guy Lacabanne in 1971, then under the aegis of Ufolep, the nascent club had to wait until 1972 to finally be registered and recognized by the federation.
The members of today remember with emotion and admiration, this group of friends from 16 to 18 years old passionate about the oval.
That these kids from the village did well, at the time, to launch such a challenge. What pride for them today to see this club become a big family gathered here to party.
Marcel Bodrero, represented by his son Michel, Georges Clairoux, Claude Gatineau known as “the Bear”, François Grave, without forgetting Monsieur Escartefigue, so many characters who made this club vibrate followed by an entire village.
