Aspen Ruggerfest – Thursday September 17 – Sunday September 20
The Aspen Rugby club, more formally known as the Gentlemen of Aspen, incorporated themselves on July 22, 1977. That was ten years after Englishmen Steve Sherlock recruited a team mostly from the local bars to play in the first Ruggerfest. Close to 30 teams will participate in the 42 annual Aspen Ruggerfest.  http://www.aspenrugby.com/
