Late spring of 2006 Suffolk Bull Moose was inspired to host a 7’s rugby tournament, with only a few months to plan the current e-board (Bob Reinhart, Josh Houston, Jennie Munster, Kim Gargan), plus two committee members (Karen Green and Chad) sprang into action. The tournament committee decided to keep our first tournament small, using one field in Center Moriches, NY at the Knights of Columbus and inviting two other women’s and men’s teams, plus a last minute men and women’s traveling team from Jamaica. The tournament required four referees who did their best in the sizzling summer heat. We had a PA system to announce all upcoming matches, plus a vendor who sold rugby apparel and tournament t-shirts and a food stand. The tournament was a success that we plan to build on in the upcoming summers.
