Two tournament updates for everyone …
• First, and most importantly, because my team and our men’s team are hosting this together, the Stuart Daily Memorial 10s Tournament is Saturday, August 12 in lovely Madison, Wisconsin. One of the greatest Midwest rugby towns!
In years past, this has been a men’s tournament only because us women’s ruggers are always way too busy in August with the end of summer, start of fall season and Select-Sides. But now, thanks to the change of our competitive schedule with League and national playoffs all in fall and Select-Sides all in spring … well, August is looking very sad and lonely. So, Pinkie and I really pushing to get a competitive women’s side for our local tournament and we think it would be a great opportunity for any Senior or Collegiate women’s team to warm-up for 15s league play. Please help us make it a great event! You get to play me, Pinkie and Goose! We’re very fun to play against!
Here’s the basic info (more details forthcoming) … please share it with everyone you know. And if your team comes to play because you read my blog, I will personally make sure your mug is full after the tournament!
MEN: $200 BY JULY 15 / $250 AFTER THAT
WOMEN: $175 BY JULY 15 / $200 AFTER THAT
The Tournament will be limited to 12 men’s and 4 women’s teams. If we have interest & payment from more than four women’s teams, we can expand our bracket.

• Also, Kirstin out in Philly e-mailed me the following about Pumpkinfest:
September 9th and 10th
This is a women’s 15s tournament with two brackets (one competitive, one social) comprising of 12 teams each. Last year our competitive bracket featured 9 of the top 16 women’s teams in the country, so its the perfect warm-up tournament for the fall season! Act now, because the brackets are already filling up! The entry deadline is July 28th!
Entry for 1 side: $300
Entry for 2 sides: $500
Entry for 1st time or West Coast Teams: $250
Please contact Kirstin Leitner, Tournament Director at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or have any further questions.
And Kirstin, thanks for the pumpkin image. I tried to post it but blogger is being dumb today. I’ll try again later. And I know my team would love to go (they have before), but we have a league game that weekend.
