Maggot Fest 2013 in Missoula
People all over the world are gearing up to come to Missoula for the annual rugby tournament known as Maggotfest.
The 37th annual Maggotfest will take place this weekend (May 11-12) at Fort Missoula’s Rugby Park. So make your plans with Mom a little later in the day on Sunday, just so you can clean yourself up a little.
According to the Official Maggot Website:
Maggotfest features 36 teams (28 men’s and 8 women’s sides) from throughout the US and Canada, with an occasional team from other exotic places. The emphasis at Maggotfest is on both the competition of the sport and on the fun aspects of rugby. Fest regularly features top first and second division clubs looking to test their skills, as well as more social sides out for some good matches and good times. We match teams that might not ordinarily get to meet each other, and are on a somewhat even level. Teams are encouraged to not only play great rugby, but wear costumes and present creative skits. The small registration fee gives you free beer all weekend and a party Saturday night. Unlike most tournaments, there is no elimination process to decide a champion – everyone gets the same number of matches. There’s plenty of opportunities for additional games, as this is a rugby whore’s paradise.
