  • Rugby Loss
        The Montauk Rugby Club’s players were hard-pressed this past weekend, given that a match with Bayonne was sandwiched between the weddings of two club members, Tek Vakalaloma and James Rigby.

        Saturday’s 50-15 loss dropped the Sharks to 0-5 in Empire Union play — a record that has not been customary for a side that within the past decade has competed for national championships.

Dan King, a former president of the East Hampton Town Baymen’s Association and a former town trustee, and Marsha King, his wife, have begun a Kickstarter.com campaign in support of a historical novel they are putting together, “A Fine Day for Fishing,” documenting “the death of a centuries-old way of life played out on a sandy beach,” according to a release.
