Aspen Ruggerfest 09

The Gentlemen of Aspen, Rugby Club hosted the 42nd annual Aspen Ruggerfest this past weekend.  Teams from all over the U.S. (and 2 sides from New Zealand) brought the thunder to Aspen to compete for greatness and glory.  The Gents were perfect hosts, winning their own tournament for fourth consecutive year besting their arch rivals,The Denver Barbarians 39-20 in the final mud-soaked match.  It was the 12th victory in the past 14 years for The Gentlemen. 

Ruggerfest is always a rowdy weekend in Aspen.  Besides the mud and the blood on the pitch, the ruggers threw some great parties.  The kickoff luau at The Limelight Lodge had a common denominator that brought all the teams together--- BEER.  Click to enlarge the pix.
