It is with great disappointment that we are announcing the cancelation of the 18th Annual Carolina Ruggerfest set for March 6 & 7, 2021. North Carolina health officials continue to recommend against "sports activities for which participants cannot maintain social distancing and close contact is frequent and/or prolonged" such as rugby. State health officials continue to recommend against large gatherings, such as tournaments, as well. In addition, the venue that we use for the Carolina Ruggerfest is currently not permitting tournaments and their determination for our tournament to be played will not be made until February 15th based on their current guidelines.
These challenges - we feel - make it difficult for us to be able to put on a quality tournament that you have come to expect from the Carolina Ruggerfest over the years. We hope that you will join us again in 2022 on the first weekend in March. Please mark your calendars for March 5 & 6, 2022.
Take care and stay safe.
