This year the proceeds from the 14th annual Mike Lundberg tournament will go to Daniel Taylor aka “Try-Hard” from the SCSU Fighting Carp. Daniel came down with a viral infection in his throat that spread to his chest and is still undergoing treatment to restore function of his vocal cords while attending school. Please join us on March 4th in River Falls, WI to play some rugby and support Try-Hard!

The St Paul Jazz Pigs Present:
14th Annual Mike Lundberg Memorial Tournament
WHEN: Saturday, March 4, 2017—10:00 am until ????
WHERE: Hoffman Park, 547 Hanson Drive, River Falls, WI
WHAT: 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.
We are required by USA Rugby to verify the CIPP of all tournament participants. Verification will take place Friday, March 3 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.
Please RSVP to Ben Hanson at LHPROP1@hotmail.com by February, 17 so I can order shirts and food.

Donations are also greatly appreciated.
