So it may not be as well publicizes as the Blackhawks making it to the play offs and getting the President's Trophy, but this weekend there will be National qualifies and ways to support teams that are already headed to nationals.
This weekend the weather is going to be awesome and perfect to get your lawn chair or sit in some bleechers to catch a game, and important ones at that! The Chicago Griffins are hosting New Orleans this Saturday (4/27) in the first round of D-I National Playoffs! The game will be at Riis Park at 1pm. You can come out and support the team as they try to secure a spot going forward to Nationals.
If you are on the southside or suburbs, you can enjoy the day at the Blaze Pitch for the 2013 CARFU Ball! It will be a full day of rugby with the best clubs from all around Chicago! There will be both Men's and Women's Bracket. There will also be the Men's Division 2 and 3 Finals throughout the day. The Chicago Riot will be taking on the Kalamazoo Dogs .
After the games if you're looking for something to do Saturday night, the Riot will be hosting a fundraiser to for their trip to Virginia Beach for Nationals starting at 7pm at Mahoney's. It's $20 for two hours. They will also have tank tops available for purchase. Mahoney's: 551 N. Ogden. You can also donate to the Riot on the front of their homepage.
Hope you all have a great weekend and hope to see you out at a game!
