On behalf of the 2017 leaders I want to say welcome back! This year is crucial for the Roughnecks and we will be pushing them on in a way only we can. I am so grateful for the friends I’ve made and the moments we’ve had from this group.
Next week elections for the 2017 board of directors will be held. Before the election, take some time to get to know the candidates. Absentee voting will be available to those unable to attend the Annual General Meeting on December 13. The candidates will have a chance to make remarks before the election begins during the Annual General Meeting.
The Tulsa Roustabouts, the official supporters group of the Tulsa Roughnecks FC men’s soccer team, are partnering with YWCA Tulsa and the Roughnecks to revitalize two disused baseball fields at 17th Street and Memorial Drive. This service project, called “Flipping the Pitch,” will begin in September and turn the lot into two or three community soccer fields, or “pitches.” Owned by YWCA Tulsa, the baseball fields have gone unused for several years and become overgrown with brush, and are now in need of major repair. Volunteers from the Roustabouts will start clearing the lot next month to prepare for the development of the pitches.
It's preseason for Tulsa Roughnecks FC fans and that means it's time to get back into regular season form. Join us Friday, February 26 for a night of bar crawling and camraderie as we all dig out our Roughneck gear and scarves and go from bar-to-bar chanting, cheering and having a good time.
