15th Annual Mike Lundberg Memorial Rugby Tournament

In 2004, the Mike Lundberg Memorial Tournament started as a fun opportunity to play winter rugby for men and women of all skill levels while donating 100% of the proceeds to help defray the costs of Mike’s treatments. Sadly, Mike lost his long battle with Leukemia in 2008. At the request of his family, we have continued the tournament to celebrate his life and help a member of the Minnesota rugby community in need. 

The tournament will be held at Hoffman Park in River Falls, WI. Registration begins at 9:30 and the cost is $30 per person. This includes a tournament T-shirt and food and beer at the social after the tournament. Please RSVP by February 17th via our Facebook event or by emailing Ben Hanson at lhprop1@hotmail.com.
