                                  May 7 & 8, 2011
                                                                              th
         Baltimore-Chesapeake is inviting all interested rugby clubs to the 34 Annual Rites
of Spring 15’s Tournament in Baltimore, Maryland on May 7th and 8th. This invitation is
for all interested men and women teams of all ages.

Tournament Form
        In the past the tournament consisted of both Men’s & Women’s teams, from both the
senior and college levels. This is a two-day tournament, so every team will play on Saturday, and
we try to guarantee each team a chance to play on Sunday as well. There will be trophies
awarded to teams depending upon the outcomes of the final games and upon the number of
divisions.

Match Rules
        All games will be played with 15 players a side, and the length of each game will be two
20-minute halves (5-minute halftime). A horn will sound with 5 minutes remaining. Advancing
teams in each bracket will be based upon: wins, highest point differential, most points scored,
most number of tries, and most number of conversions made.
        In the event of a tie during pool play and semi-finals, a 10-minute sudden death period
will be allowed with no halftime. In the event of a tie after sudden death, the winning team will
be determined by the number of tries scored and then penalty kicks. Kicks will be taken by one
member of each team from 15 meters away from the goal line from anywhere within the crossbar
space at the players choosing. After each successful kick, the spot is moved 10 meters back until
one team misses. If both teams miss then the kick is again placed at the same spot until one team
misses. All Championship games will be determined by two 10-minute sudden death periods, at
which point, a 5 minute break will be given after each period.
        If a team, due to injuries, cannot field 15 players for any match, they will be allowed to
seek out players from another team. Teams may use a player that is currently CIPP’d with
another club. The tournament Director has the final say in all discrepancies.
