San Diego, CA (January 2, 2010) – Making your plans for the USA 7s weekend in Las Vegas? Before the international rugby begins on Saturday, treat yourself to two of the things Vegas is famous for — golf and poker. All while supporting the USRF’s youth and high school programs. Friday, February 12, 2010 is chock full of entertainment. Tee off your day at the USRF’s 3rd Annual Scrumble Golf Tournament. Then finish off your night by taking part in the first ever I’Maul In No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament.

The registration fee for the Scrumble remains just $200 per player and includes:

There will also be the Scrumble Raffle, which will include a lot of great rugby memorabilia.
Whether you are taking part in the Scrumble or not, help out the USRFF by purchasing one of the Scrumble sponsorship packages.
“I think everyone who took part in the first two Scrumbles enjoyed themselves,” said USRF Executive Director Brian Vizard. “Vegas is known for its golf and we feel in the Siena Golf Club, we have one that is unique to the area and one the golfers will enjoy playing. It should be a great day and a good way to start out the USA 7s weekend.”
The USRF would like to thank the IRB, USA Sevens and the Las Vegas Blackjacks for their support of the 3rd Annual USRF Scrumble Golf Tournament. Proceeds raised from the event will further the youth and high school programs offered by the US Rugby Foundation.
