Here’s the basic info for the tournament. I’ll discuss specific DC Touch rugby details this Saturday and again on the Wednesday before.
The Wild Geese “Old Boys” Rugby Football Club is hosting a touch rugby tournament at Gosling Park (20500 Martinsburg Road, Dickerson, MD 20842) on Saturday 5th October 2013 starting at 11am – with a pre-match training from 10-10:30 for beginners. The tournament will raise funds for Wild Geese Charities in the D.C. area and “Hope in South Africa.”
The day will be divided into two groups: very competitive and competitive. We will group new and still learning teams together and allow the high speed, low drag teams to compete against their same level. This will ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the day. 2 x 12 minute halves with a 5 minute breather. Youth 12 and above welcome (or speedy and experienced 10/11 year olds).
Gosling Park is situated on a beautiful historic farm site with 2 pitches, not far from Poolesville, MD. Located near the C&O canal – which is great for hiking and biking – bring the family and kids for a day of fun.
Players should bring plenty of water and everyone should bring chairs and shade tents (there are no shade trees next to pitch). BBQ and grilled items as well as a few vegetarian dished will be provided. The tournament will provide bottle water and you will need to bring beer.
$20 per player
