Gurnee Days Parade!!

We were privileged to be involved in the 2013 Gurnee Days Parade. We had the opportunity to let our local communities know that we exist and also got to represent the local businesses who back us. We had a very positive response from everyone...very few if any had any idea we existed.

Showing off who supports us!!

Some of the gents who came to walk in the parade to represent Lake County Rugby!

Even the kids got in on the fun!!!

The theme was "Ahoy Matey" so we created an undead ship...

Waiting to enter the parade route...

And then it began...


Thank you to the Gurnee Days committee for having us join in the fun of this great event.

Game 1 of 2013 spring season!

Game one is in the books and we walked away with the victory 24-11. Iliana came at us hard but we stepped up when we needed to, coming back from a deficit in the second half. Thank you to Iliana for making the trip and a big pat on the back to the new guys who took the pitch for the first time.


We head back into practices as we prepare for our next opponents the Bloomington Crash this coming Saturday. Lets keep this going...

IMPORTANT NOTICE!! Practice update!!

Gents: PRACTICE UPDATE- due to a scheduling conflict with the Elementary this Thursday, we are moving our first practice to Tuesday, Feb 12th, same time, same place....It would have been Feb 14th (Valentines Day), but starting a spring season in hot water with the wife/girlfriend/significant other is not the way go. After next week, we will begin regularly scheduled Thursday practices (Feb 21st and following)
