USA Rugby D4 Championship Tournament
April 30, 2016 · 1:00 am
Greenbriar Park
Flamingos, Rush, Harlequins, Killer—Bees, Staggs, Grizzlies, (Littleton?) and the Marauders are currently confirmed to participate in a D4 and open social tournament. Clubs in good standing with USA Rugby in our region are invited to particpate at no cost to their club.

D4 qualifying teams:
* Rush
* Staggs
* Harlequins
* (Littleton?)

A social pub crawl will start at 4:00 and go to at least 4 pubs. A limited supply of T-shirts will be avaialable to purchse for $35 at the tournament.

Agenda:

* Tournament takes place between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm
* Lunch break from 10:30am—11:30am
* Finals are from 3:00—4:00
* Drinkup at Washington's starts at 2:00
* Pub crawl leaves from Washington's at 4:00
* Pub crawl to at least 4 pubs (40 minutes a pub)
* Go back to Washington's for their closing party and the awarding of the D4 Championship trophy

A full schedule will be posted on Thursday, April 28th. That schedule will allow qualifying D4 teams to compete in an isolated bracket until their trophy is awarded. Qualifying D4 teams will never play back to back matches and they will not play against teams that are disqualified from D4 competition until their trophy is awarded.

Tournament champions will be decided separately from the D4 championships but the tournament will run concurrently. D4 champions simply switch into a new bracket after their trophy is awarded. It will be possible for a team to win both the D4 championship as well as the tournament but one does not have a direct impact on the other. This is still a social match for every club in our region to have fun and socialize.

After the D4 championship our primary concern is giving every club as much time on the field as possible. We are committed to making sure that every club gets at least 80 minutes of play. This means that the tournament will likely start very early and that the schedule we set next Thursday will be strictly enforced. It also means that the full tournament will run from at least 8:00 am to as late as 4:00 pm. If we're able to give teams more than 80 minutes of play we will.
