Elkhart facility hosts Big Ten Rugby Championships for the first time


The Big Ten Rugby championship was played at the Moose Lodge in Elkhart today for the first time ever.  The Moose Lodge hosts about 160 games a year and now they can add the Big Ten games to that.

The location of the Championship event is bid on every year and this year Elkhart won.  Local Rugby experts said it's pretty cool to have the games here for multiple reasons.  "The really neat thing is not only are we helping out the community a little bit with a lot of hotels and some money but a lot of our local high school players are back playing for those college teams," said Moose Rugby Grounds Director Bart Bottorff.
