Three tournaments will be endorsed as official stops on the 2012 BC Rugby Sevens Series circuit, and club teams registered within the BC Rugby Union will have the opportunity to accrue points towards a provincial championship. The three stops include the Vancouver Rugby Sevens on June 16; Burnaby Lake Lighthouse Sevens on July 7; and the Abbotsford Rugby Sevens on July 28. Teams eligible for a provincial title will have to attend all three Series events. These three tournaments were endorsed by BC Rugby for committing to field both a men's and women's team in all series stops.
The third annual BLRC Lighthouse 7ís Tournament takes place on the shores of Burnaby Lake on Saturday July 7th, 2012. As defending BC Rugby Sevens Series champions in both the Elite Menís and Womenís Divisions, BLRC is again participating in the 2012 BC Rugby Sevens series to not only defend their crown, but to also help enhance the development of Sevens Rugby in the Province.
BLRC will again hope to host 12 Elite Menís teams, 12 Elite Social teams and eight elite Womenís teams. We will also be looking at hosting at least eight Under-18 Junior Boys teams as part of our effort to develop the sport with the kids. There will be a Beer Garden running to quench your thirst, BBQ and entertainment. Please visit the sevens page on BLRCís website at www.burnabylakerugby.com for updates as we get closer to the big day. Regular updates will be posted to keep you informed, not only of results and those we are entering, but also clubs and teams that will be entering our tournament.
