Lee Kelly Thanksgiving Touch Rugby Tournament

Buchanan Field
Come out and enjoy a morning of rugby on Eye Street at the 19th edition of this annual Thanksgiving touch tournament.  We are re-branding the event this year in honor of Lee Kelly, beloved coach, friend and mentor to so many in the Gonzaga community. Lee was instrumental in bringing us back to Gonzaga each year for this celebration of friendship and rugby. It's only fitting that this event be named for him and that we continue the tradition on Eye Street each year.

Please join us in honoring and celebrating Lee's life by playing the sport he loved so deeply and that brings us all together year after year. 

The format (depending on amount of teams) will look something like this:
  • Round Robin/Pool Play Tournament
  • Comprised of 7-10 player teams
  • 7 vs 7, 7 minute halves, ROLLING SUBS.
  • Semi Finals and Finals to follow pool play
  • We will make sure to guarantee each team 2-3 games (again, depending on overall participation)
  • And to make things more interesting: Enter your own team! Take charge and call up your classmates and put your squad together.
  • If you don't feel like putting a team together, no worries- show up on Thanksgiving Friday and we will assemble teams of free agents or assign you to a pre-formed team.

Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!
