Mike Buca

All-Comers tournament. There is an entry fee of $30 per player. Names are drawn from a hat to determine the teams. The number of entrants will determine the format. (7s, 10s, 15s) There will be a post-tourney social with food and drinks for all participants. MEN AND WOMEN RUGGERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.

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.

This year’s beneficiary is Kevin Ash.  Kevin is a member of the Faribault Rugby Club who suffered a traumatic brain injury during a match two years ago.  Since the injury, he has required around the clock care and still struggles with the most basic of daily tasks.

We are required by USA Rugby to verify the CIPP of all tournament participants. Verification will take place Friday, March 4 at 2:00 pm. IF YOU ARE NOT CIPP REGISTERED AT THAT TIME, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PLAY. THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS.

Registration begins at 10:00am with matches starting at 11:00am.  All matches will be held at Hoffman Park, River Falls, WI. (547 Hanson Dr, River Falls, WI 54022).

The post tournament social will be at the Lazy River Bar in River falls (115 W Walnut St, River Falls, WI 54022).

Donations are also greatly appreciated.
