» Sevens practices now happening; regular practices start soon
Come by for a run, and to get a primer about the game of rugby. Practice sessions are Thursdays from 7 to 9 PM (we're limited by daylight) at Ned Brown Meadow in Busse Woods, in Schaumburg, at the corner of Golf Rd. and IL-53. We switch back to two-a-week practices (Tuesday and Thursday) starting August 5th at our Spring / Summer practice field at Keller Elementary in Schaumburg.
» Woodsmen's Spring a Success
There was a hard-fought win at warm, windy Busse Woods on April 12, over the Chicago Griffins b-side, 34-15, as several a-siders (from their earlier win over the D1 Cincinnati Wolfhounds) entered our match in the second half. A tough time at the NIU Torunament of Champions on April 26 was tempered by a big win over the visiting Bloomington Crash, 39-22, on May 3rd. A 1-2-1 record at the CARFU Ball on May 10 still resulted in a trophy for 3rd place. The season's final results are 5-3, and 3-6-1 in tournaments.
» Sevens Season Concluded--Watch Some Footage!
With 15s rugby done until late August, Sevens season is upon us. Coming off 2nd place at the Chicago Scots Highland Games on June 21st (video for the Woodsmen, as well as Elgin and Palatine High School is available HERE
) and and a lot of close-fought matches at the Lakefront Sevens in Milwaukee on June 28, the Woodsmen's next action comes in a warmup for the Fall season, a friendly on August 30th.
