2014 begins tonight, which means the Revs’ quest for the cup soon begins anew. And a new season means new memberships. 2014 memberships are available in the shop today. But before the season kicks off, we’ve got a slew of things to keep you warm through the cold, Revs-less winter.
The 2014 Scarf Contest!
A new year means a new scarf! Our annual scarf contest has begun! The deadline for submissions is January 10, and voting will begin after that on the message boards. Will yours be the one selected this year?
We’ll be having our end-of-2013 party in the beginning of 2014, just to keep things interesting. Come on down to the Banshee on Saturday, January 11 to raise a few pints, reminisce about the 2013 season and make predictions for 2014… and watch the Patriots’ first playoff game, if that’s your thing.
Annual Meeting and Board Elections
The Riders’ annual meeting will be held on Sunday, February 9, at Doyle’s Pub in Jamaica Plain. If you haven’t been before, you should definitely make it out this year. We’ll go over all that’s happened in the previous year, discuss plans for the next year, and vote on board members and any other business. Do you want to join the At-Large Board? This is the place for that. Remember, to be elected to the Executive Board you need to be a current At-Large Boardmember. Visit the thread on the boards to see who’s running and to announce your own interest!
FIFA 14 Tournament
Think you can top your fellow Riders in FIFA 14? Now’s your chance to prove it. The 3rd Annual FIFA Tournament is on Saturday, February 15th, at The Greatest Bar in downtown Boston. There are only a few spots left in the tournament, but there’s also plenty of room for spectators. Proceeds benefit Taylor Twellman’s charity ThinkTaylor, so get all your tickets today!
Merch Merch Merch
We still have a limited supply of hoodies available in the shop, as well as a number of other great things new and old. Did you forget your girlfriend’s Christmas? What better way to make it up to her than with a brand new Riders tee?
The scarf contest is back.
Deadline for submissions is Jan 10.
Voting will be open to members and take place on the message board.
Please use the form below to submit your design.
This is a 32 person, single elimination tournament to crown the Midnight Riders FIFA14 champion!
All participants will be receiving the t-shirt below. We will also be providing food for all participants and spectators, and of course prizes for the winners.
The event is open to ALL AGES, but anyone under 21 will be asked to wear a wristband while at the bar.
We will be playing on PS3. If you have a system, controller(s), or a copy of the game we can use for the event please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Everyone that allows us to use their equipment for the event will be entered into a special drawing for awesome prizes.
If the event sells out before you are able to register and you want to be on the waiting list in the event of cancellations please email us at email@example.com
Please note that registrations are non-refundable.
Slick pitch, yellow cards, and late goal notwithstanding, the Revs defied the pundits and scored two to win it on Saturday, meaning they head into tonight’s game needing a win or a draw to advance.
As the Revs travel to Kansas City for the second leg of the conference semi-final, we’ll be gathering for watch parties all over the region. Vermes will be contemplating “taking matters into his own hands,” but we’ll just be having fun in New England taking in some food and beers and yelling and engaging in any and all of our various superstitions. Come out to Parlor Sports in Somerville, the Revs’ official Boston-area viewing party at the Banshee in Dorchester, or Boston Billiards in Nashua, and Buffalo Wild Wings in Saugus (see page with full map and more info here). It seems like it’s been true for two months, but every game now is must-win in a much more real sense. This is when it gets really intense! Don’t miss it!
Just in time for the holidays
Whether it’s for the soccer fans on your list or just for yourself, our 2014 Holiday Membership Package is a great deal. Join up (or give a friend a membership) and get our brand-new Midnight Riders hoodie – or even a hoodie and a scarf in theMega Pack. You can also buy a hoodie separately, but why not renew today? Order by December 1st to have them in time for Christmas.
