Spray, suds and Speedos were everywhere Sunday outside The Cuff Complex in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood as the Quake Rugby club held a car wash fundraiser. 
Seattle Quake Rugby is a local and primarily gay men’s rugby club. After a pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, they filed to return to play, and started practicing again last week in a modified fashion.
Running a rugby club isn’t cheap, so fundraising is an important factor. Earlier this year, pre-Covid, they photographed a risqué calendar titled “Specs Appeal,” a play on 20/20 vision for the year 2020, and were selling it at the car wash. 
“We’re all just hoping Phase 3, Phase 4 comes along,” said Robert Aviles, treasurer of the club. “We’re all just really itching to tackle each other.”
