Village Chiropractor, Son to Compete Again

Being a part of any Rotary club is usually associated with charity, and good deeds within the local community as well as on a worldwide scale. Rotarians tirelessly lend their time and service to helping others. One local Farmingdale Rotarian is no exception.     Yasuo Usui has been an active member with the Farmingdale and Massapequa Rotary clubs for 20 years this fall. Usui’s local contribution is through an ongoing project that he started three years ago, the Rotary’s Triathlon Project. Each year, Usui participates in the Tobay Triathlon; he chooses a local cause to support through pledges received for his participation in the event. This year, Usui has selected Hope for the Future Ministries in Farmingdale as the beneficiary of his pledges. A building fire financially and emotionally devastated the ministries back in November.

Rugby Club Accepting Registration

Friday, 20 August 2010 00:00

The Long Island Rugby Club is inviting all athletes entering 8th and 9th grade in Nassau County to register. Rugby is the ancestor of football, and is similar to no-huddle, wishbone gridiron game with all two-way players. Forward passing is not allowed, so the ball must be advanced by hard running and intricate lateral passing. After a tackle, play continues as teams, essentially a compacted line of scrimmage try to drive each other off the ball. The goals of the program are to develop a competitive youth rugby program, through an ethic of hard work and commitment, and cultivate self-confidence in every player. Practices are currently under way. Contact John Royal by email at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The Farmingdale High School Wrestling Team and coaches hosted a Wrestling ‘Summer Slam’ Tournament on Saturday, Aug. 7th at the Farmingdale High School. Many of the Farmingdale High School wrestlers have been attending various camps throughout the summer to continue their training; getting ready for the upcoming 2010-2011 wrestling season. The tournament was a great way to show off their new moves. Close to 200 wrestlers from across Long Island, the five boroughs and Westchester attended the tournament. Thanks to all three coaches, who ran the head table, the tournament ran smoothly and effortlessly allowing the majority of the wrestlers to get 3-4 matches. Also on hand were many alumni to help run the event; without them it would not have been a success. In addition the team wishes to thank The Bagel Hut, The Garcia Family, The Schultz Family, The Rosen Family, The Waszkiewicz Family, Charles Cottone, JV Coach Simons and Varsity Coach Weidler for their constant support and generosity.
