Dear Madame, Dear Sir,
The Dendermonde Rugbyclub is proud to announce you the 17th edition of the “Flanders Open Rugby Tens”
We organize the “Flanders Open Rugby Tens”, an international rugbytournament in the weekend of May 22 & 23, 2010 with 60 teams from all over the world.
During the past 16 years, the tournament has become the biggest in his kind in Europe. Each year, more and more interested clubs react to our invitation. The past years we have had teams from the U.S.A., Canada, Russia, Israel, South Africa, Cameroon, Serbia, Romania, Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.
As in previous years we are choosing for 10’s Rugby as this provides a better game formula for both players and spectators. The game is more energetic and the tries are most often very spectacular. Those present at previous editions of our tournament will certainly confirm this.
FOR THE LOVE OF RUGBY & BEER
To ensure each team experiences the social side of the tournament we’ve organised opening and closing ceremony parties as well as match day celebrations after each day’s play Spectators and teams will enjoy the social format and everyone will get to make new rugby playing friends from across the world.
From Friday May 21st (18:00), you will be welcome on our grounds. On Saturday May 22nd, the first games will kick-off at 09:30 sharp (You may best arrive on Friday-evening!)
€ 250 (€ 125 will be paid back at the tournament in the form of consumption tickets).
The ultimate date to book is 2010, January 15.
The participation of your team will only be finalised once you have paid your registration fee.
May we urge you to react quickly? There are limited team spaces available and we operate a very simple “first pay will play” rule.
A rugbytournament doesn’t necessary have to be expensive. On our tournament, everybody sleeps in large and comfortable tents near the pitches. This provides us with a unique tournament-atmosphere.
Breakfast is included in the price of bed/tent.
We are looking forward to your subscription.
Yours in rugby,
Gert Van den Steen
