14th Annual Mike Lundberg Memorial Tournament

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. Directions can be found at www.saintpaulrugby.com You can also RSVP and get the latest updates at https://www.facebook.com/events/1779958882326238/or follow us on twitter @stpaulrugby Entry fee is to be paid the morning of the tourney. 100% of the proceeds go to help a member of MN rugby in need. Donations are also greatly appreciated.
