imageThe Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club, working through a tough spring schedule, closes out its season on Saturday with a match and Spring Fan Appreciation Day.

The Bucks are looking to end their 0-5 season with a win when they take the pitch against Athens in Kirkwood. The game against the team from Bulldog Nation was originally scheduled for February, but was postponed.

Fans who attend the 1 p.m. match on Saturday are then invited to join the teams for the traditional third half celebration at Mixx, complete with catered food and beer.

The Bucks are also gearing up for their annual festive fundraiser, the Purple Dress Run on May 1. The event — yes, it features participants in purple dresses in a bar crawl through Midtown — attracted 125 people last year and raised more than $3,000 for the club.
