After last year’s rip-roaring success the Obo is on for 2018. Scheduled for 21 February please save the date.
We intend to find a Lion just retired from international rugby to tell us his war-stories and give us both thoughtful insight into the game and a laugh too. *
Invites will follow in Autumn, and we’ll see you in February if not before. In the meantime please mark the date in your diary and keep it free for a great evening, and do pass it on to your favourite friends who you’ll want at your table. We’ll sell out again, so if you want to secure a table do say so, it’s got to be first come first served.
All the best
Tom and Hannah
* If you know such a Lion do please let me know so we can avoid agency fees and serve our excellent causes better!
Prince Alexander Obolensky was born on 17 February 1916 in St Petersburg. He played rugby four times for England scoring 2 tries on his debut against the All Blacks in 1936 helping England secure victory against the All Blacks for the first time by 13 points to nil. Obo or The Flying Prince as he was known played for Oxford University, Leicester and Rosslyn Park.
The Prince Obolensky Association commemorates the memory of Prince Obolensky and through his link with Rosslyn Park, the association commemorates the great rugby tradition of Park, one of England’s oldest rugby clubs.
The Association holds an annual dinner in the Spring which provides a wonderful way for members from every section of the club to meet and celebrate all that is great about our game. A major club social, the funds raised help to support many different facets of Rosslyn Park Football Club.
If you have a moment: “That Obolensky Try” against the All Blacks is on You Tube here.
