In Memoriam Bob
It is with great sadness to report that Bob Whitmore, one of the founding members of the New York Ramblers, passed away earlier this week at his home in Southampton. While many of us never got the chance to know Bob, we live the result of his generosity and passion every time we step on the field - together - as Ramblers.
From the Ramblers who were, from the Ramblers who are and from the Ramblers who will be - Thank you Bob, for giving us a place to find friendship, for creating a team that turned into a league then became a family, for giving us and others around the world the opportunity to play the sport we love, for your lasting legacy and last, but certainly not least, for showing us that the power of courage and bravery can build something amazing.
In lieu of sending flowers Bob’s partner, Alan, requests that loved ones make a donation in Bob’s name to Ramblers Soccer New York (PO Box 230330 NY, NY 10023), or online here.
Happy Hour Socials
Join us every week this Fall Season for a fun-filled Happy Hour with drink specials and team themes at one of our sponsor bars! Co-hosts from our own Ramblers League will join with other LGBTQ sports teams each Thursday for fraternizing, shade throwing, kiki-ing and plenty of cocktails. Foolishness is guaranteed! No need to RSVP! Just come and have a blast! All Ramblers are welcome to attend these events, even if you are not playing in the League this season! Check out our Facebook page and Weekly Digest for info on upcoming location.
