Invitation Letter

On behalf of the Chiang Mai Tigers Rugby Club, I would like to extend an invitation to you to participate in the International Chiang Mai Rugby Tens Tournament 2017.
We are now into our seventh year and are looking to increase the size of the tournament to 16 Mens teams and 8 Womens teams. Our previous tournaments have been very successful and the tournament is growing each year. We are looking forward to making this one even better. The Tournament will take place as always at the grounds of The Prince Royal’s College, Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Each year we try to attract Club teams from outside of Thailand and are happy to say that in past years teams from New Zealand, Australia, Siberia and Moscow have played in the tournament. We are hoping that we can attract eight non Thai teams and eight (or more) Thai teams. Many of the Thai teams will be from Chiang Mai and the North of Thailand where Rugby is quickly developing amongst the locals. We are hoping the Royal Thai Navy and Royal Thai Airforce will again send teams.
All proceeds from the tournament will go to the Chiang Mai Tigers and will be used to continue our efforts to promote and develop rugby in Chiang Mai and the north of Thailand.

For those of you who have not been to Chiang Mai before Chiang Mai as a city has been voted one of the top destinations to live or visit in Asia on many occasions and in many magazines. It is considered a modern and cosmopolitan city, which has maintained its traditional old world charm. We are confident that all who visit will enjoy not only the Rugby, but the city itself. We would recommend, where possible, to stay a few days either side of the tournament and enjoy our wonderful city and its surrounds.
The full entry fee for the Chiang Mai International Rugby Tens Tournament 2017 is 12,000 baht (approx U$ 340) per team. Included in the entry fee is a welcome buffet dinner at the UN Irish Pub, attending physio’s, water, ice, assistance with hotel bookings, and transport to and from the ground on playing days if required. For local teams or other Thai teams we are happy to assist in finding sponsors to assist in your costs and can reduce entry fee if the services provided are not required, e.g. transport. If you are interested in participating in this tournament please contact Bruce Robinson – brucejrobinson@gmail.com

Sincerely yours,
Chiang Mai Tigers Rugby Club
