» The Fall Practice Schedule Has Returned
Come by for a run, and to get a primer about the game of rugby. Practice sessions are twice weekly (Tuesday and Thursday, 6:30 PM till dark) starting August 5th at our Spring / Summer practice field at Keller Elementary in Schaumburg, also known as Zocher Park, at the corner of Bode and Salem Roads. After Thursday practice, we gather at our new sponsor bar, Jersey's Pizza and Grill, 2360 Lakewood Blvd, in Hoffman Estates.
» 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.
