R-Fest Parade – Join Us On The Float

Calling all Raiders past, present and future… Join us on the float in the Reisterstown Festival Parade this Saturday 9/7. Meet us at 8:30 AM sharp on the road right behind Food Lion, we’re 10th in line. Wear your Raiders shirt (supposed to be a cool, clear morning) and help us toss candy from the Raiders ship. Parade starts moving at 9AM and we’ll be done by ~10:00 for pick-up at the Reisterstown Shopping Center. It’s always a great time so come out and promote your team! RSVP to with who and your cell phone (in case of last minute weather/ changes.)


Reter’s Restaurant Night Tuesday 1/8

Each year, as one of our few fund raisers, we do a “restaurant night”. We all recruit everyone we know to eat at a particular place, and that place donates a portion of sales back to the team. In the past we have had wonderful participation and a fantastic time, and I hope we continue that tradition. Here are the details for this year:

Tuesday, January 8th
Reter’s Crab House & Grille
509 Main St., Reisterstown, MD 21136, 410-526-3300
(near Chartley Drive, across from Jiffy Lube and Wawa)

There will be no practice that night so everyone can attend. Tuesdays is “all-you-can-eat shrimp night” with soup and a salad for $14.99. A full menu can be found here:

EVERYONE MUST TELL THEIR SERVER THEY ARE THERE FOR THE WRESTLING PROGRAM for us to get credit. Please invite friends and family and join us for a great night out. If you can’t make it for dinner, anytime of the day counts, so try to get there for lunch. We all appreciate your support. Have a safe and happy New Year!
