After a dominant Northeast 7s season, the Mystics have clinched their spot in the USA Rugby National Sweet 16 with two 25+ point victories at the Blazing 7s in New Jersey! The Mystics will be travelling to Des Moines, Iowa for the tournament on August 8-9. Given their strong showing in the Northeast competition, the Mystics are looking to make a serious run at Nationals this year. As part of that effort we want to support the guys on the squad by ensuring that the trip is not a huge financial burden for them.
We are running an IndieGoGo campaign to help raise money towards the overall costs of the trip, and are asking all Mystic supporters to help by donating any and all amounts, AND by spreading the word about the campaign. We are hoping to get donations of all amounts – you can donate $5, $10, $20 or as much as you can. Continue reading →
