The Alaska Oosiks are a touring side of old boys (35+) that are playing or played in Alaska. Currently they are planning a trip to the next Golden Oldies in Christchurch, NZ 22-29 April 2018. We are also great hosts up here in Alaska too. Throughout 2017 we had the pleasure of hosting Mangatainoka Barbarians (NZ) US Misfits, Snake River, and Semiahmoo Old Boys (BC, Can)
If scheduled properly we can have a match or two on the Alaska Mountain Rugby Grounds http://www.alaskarugby.org/ drop us a note at email@example.com and we can setup a trip of a lifetime!
Latest message about our upcoming tour:
I am officially beginning to organize the Alaska Old Oosiks/Ancient Aztecs tour to the Christchurch New Zealand Golden Oldies which is being held April 22 – 29, 2018 (next April). We are behind the payment schedule and will have to do some catching up in a hurry. I would like to hear from you shortly if you are interested in attending. I believe we will have enough players to do both a very social Old Boys team and a second team to play more competitively. Please let me know which you would care to be placed with. It will probably be possible for some to do both, if needed. For those wishing to use a credit card, we will attempt to set up a PayPal account to take funds (keep in mind that PayPal takes 3.5%). Expect information to flow regularly as we play catch up. Please pass the word on to those who are interested.
I will send out the Festival package information soon. Expect Festival cost to be NZ$2400 – 2800 roughly (USD$1725 – $2016 at current rates). If you are not familiar with what that gets you, google Golden Oldies Rugby Christchurch 2018 and the website will help answer questions. I will do my best to help if you need to ask me.
We typically do not do group fares for air travel, as the vast majority of travelers tend to go earlier or stay later and make this problematic. Additionally, some will choose to use air miles. Maria at Worldview Travel is there to help with your travel needs if you wish. She is familiar with our travel requirements and tuned into how to help. Examples of current airfare costs are Los Angeles to Christchurch $1332-1382 lowest right now, round trip. Honolulu to Christchurch via Sydney is $1057 round trip. Los Angeles to Auckland via Sydney or Melbourne is $952 round trip. All those prices are subject to change until booked.
If you are sure you wish to go and want to write me a check, send $500 deposit payable to “Alaska Old Oosiks” to me at the address listed below. Looking forward to seeing us well represented again in New Zealand.
