This weekend marks exactly one month since New Mexico rugby came to a stand still, and while the loss of the 2020 spring season still feels surreal, your New Mexico Brujos are dusting themselves off and looking toward the future!

In the shadow of the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, the NM Brujos invite teams around the Southwest to join them for day of rugby, camaraderie, and #PrideInRugby #PrideInTheSouthwest. The dress code is rugby formal (dress or suit and rugby boots!), and we will give out awards for best dressed teams. This event is open for men's and women's teams. Although this event is primarily for IGR teams, we have this event open to allies and IGR teams alike. We are working with a local hospitality team to find us the best deal on hotels, stay tuned!
We look forward to seeing everyone back on the rugby pitch here in ABQ this October!
Updated Sandia 7's Tournament information:
Speaking of tournaments, the date and location of the upcoming Sandia 7's tournament, originally scheduled for May 30th, 2020, is still undecided. We are currently exploring our options to possibly hold this tournament at a later date in 2020, depending on availability of tournament locations and participating teams, and obviously entirely dependent on the hopeful containment of the current coronavirus health emergency. So for now we will not being opening registration just yet, and instead keeping our fingers crossed for a positive resolution to the current crisis and doing our part to flatten the curve and beat this thing! Stay positive, stay in shape (safely) and stay hopeful that we'll all see each other on the pitch for this exciting tournament sometime in 2020.
