Just incase you don’t have it circled on your calendars, we are now just 4 months out from what will prove to be a fabulous tour and international lacrosse competition, the Celtic Lacrosse Open, to be staged in Limerick, Ireland over the July 4th holiday.
Ireland Lacrosse also just announced Rorke Denver, a 12-year officer in the Navy SEALs, author of Damn Few, and actor in the highly acclaimed movie Act of Valor, as the Honorary Chairman of the event. Rorke was also a captain at Syracuse as a defenseman, earning two National Championships. Rorke will be traveling with the US teams, joining the teams in training sessions in Limerick, watching from the sidelines during games and representing the United States in the July 4th Americana Celebration hosted by the City of Limerick.
As a tribute to Rorke, each team from the USA has the opportunity to be named Team Stars & Stripes, followed in title by your city, state, region or club; for example: ‘Stars & Stripes Arizona’.
Just imagine yourself in beautiful Limerick, Ireland, traveling the charmed land and playing lacrosse internationally. It is a pretty special experience to represent the United States with Rorke and your fellow lacrosse family over the 4th of July while in a new country!
To lock down your spot, complete the attached registration form and submit it as directed to Sanders Travel in Fort Worth, Texas. Also make sure to arrange your deposit now due of $500, plus $1000 if you want Sanders to book your flight.
