26 Jun Vikings Rugby 2019 Hagar’s Day
Hagar’s Day needs no introduction. It’s a day where we invite all the old boys of the club, those who have contributed to the Vikings long and rich history, down to Viking Park to celebrate and reflect on their time wearing the jersey. It is a proud day for the current playing group, too, who perform on the field to honour those who have come before them. This year’s Hagar’s Day marks several special milestones:
1979 – 40 year anniversary of the birth of our Vikings Junior Club and the opening of our Licenced Club premises at Erindale
1989 – 30 year anniversary of 1st and 2nd Grades first ever momentous victory over arch-rival Royals
1994 – 25 year anniversary of our first ever 1st Grade premiership
1999 – 20 years since 1st grade completed a three-peat of premiership wins
2004 – 15 years since our grand final victory over Gungahlin
2009 – 10 years since our grand final victory over Queanbeyan

As always, there will be plenty of food, drink, raffles and yarns to spin on the day. 1st Grade will don a commemorative strip, too, which we will auction off following the match.
Your ticket to Hagar’s Day in 2019 will grant you admission to our dinner and drinks on Friday the 19th of July at the Brick & Basil Erindale Vikings (from 7:00pm) and to the usual Hagar’s Day Festivities on Saturday the 20th of July, from 12:15pm.
