Lakefront 7s COVID-19 Update #2 – golf fundraiser replaces June 27 rugby tournament

The heath and safety of the rugby community is one of our top priorities at the Lakefront 7s. That’s why we previously made a commitment to follow all state and local recommendations and mandates regarding the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

On February 14th we received our permit to hold the Lakefront 7s as scheduled on June 27, 2020 at Veterans Park. Yesterday we received the following update from Milwaukee County Parks who manage Venerans Park:

As always, your health and safety remain our top priority. We continue to monitor local, state, and federal public health guidance to ensure we are making decisions that best support the health of our community. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, gathering size limits, social distancing recommendations, and lower staffing levels Milwaukee County Parks is cancelling all rentals through July 31st.

As such, we must officially cancel the 2020 Lakefront 7s. Registration has been closed for 2020, and all existing registrations will be refunded in the coming days.

We are continuing to explore other options for a tournament later this summer (pending safety issues of course).

However, we have decided to continue our annual Papa Joe Golf Outing & Fundraiser.

The golf event has been moved from its normal day on Friday to Saturday, June 27, 2020. Social distancing and other safety measures can be maintained during golf. So please do mark your calendars and join us for a fun day with the Milwaukee rugby community.

Lakefront 7s COVID-19 Update #1 – Event proceeding as scheduled for June 27, 2020

Athlete safety is the primary concern for all of us here at the Lakefront 7s and Milwaukee Barbarians Rugby. As such, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely. 

We have spent the last few weeks consulting with our vendors, sponsors, and other stakeholders, and carefully reviewing state and local guidelines and mandates. Based on this research, we have decided that the Lakefront 7s will proceed as currently scheduled. 

Critically, we have been in touch with the venue owner (Milwaukee County) and our insurance carrier and have received their approvals to hold the event on the original date of June 27, 2020. (more…)
