» **Follow us on Twitter and Instagram** Outdoor Practices Now Happening
The Woodsmen are on Twitter and our new Instagram! Come by for a run, and to get a primer about the game of rugby. Outdoor practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays at Zocher Park, behind Keller Junior High School in Schaumburg, starting March 10 at 6 PM. Contact us under the "about" tab for current practice information. After Thursday practice, we gather at our new sponsor bar, Jersey's Pizza and Grill, 2360 Lakewood Blvd, in Hoffman Estates.
» Woodsmen Spring 2014 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.

Video for the Woodsmen, as well as some Elgin and Palatine High School matches, is available HERE. The next game action for the 6-0 division-leading Woodsmen comes after the winter break, on the road in a friendly versus the Division IV playoff-bound Chicago Dragons at Diversey Harbor on March 21st. For to all who came by our Turkey Bowl touch rugby event on November 29, as we were able to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society; thanks again for your donations!
