Crazy 8's Wrap-up

The USQRA is looking for sponsors for the 2017-2018 Season

Please contact the 2nd Vice-President for information about becoming a sponsor



The annual Crazy 8's Wheelchair Rugby tournament was held November 16-17 in Perryville, MO. Perryville is the home of 2 St. Louis players, Steve Reisenbichler and Mike Schamberg. Saturday was a short but action filled day with all teams playing 3 games in a row with a lunch break in between the first and second game. Two teams had international players (Indy Jose¢ Hilingo;  Tampa – Leevi Ylonen)
The cross-over games were held on Sunday, with Lakeshore vs. St. Louis and Indy vs. Tampa. Tampa took the win over Indy & Lakeshore beat St. Louis for the second time. The championship game was Lakeshore vs Tampa and 3rd place game was St. Louis vs Indy. During the championship and 3rd place games the tornado sirens went offstopping play.  Everyone was evacuated to the hallways while the storm passed. After discussion and some time,
play was resumed, as Tampa had a flight to catch. The Tampa vs Lakeshore game kept a running clock during the game to speed up the game. Everyone was safe, but the wind didn't stop outside as the tournament ended inside. Lakeshore took first, Tampa second, St. Louis third and Indy fourth. We would like to thank all the volunteers and our sponsors for a successful tournament.  Sponsors included: The Rotary Club of Perryville, Perry County Insurance, MC Industrial, Paraquad, Therapeutic Specialties, The Bank of Missouri, Phil and Mary Tucker, St. Louis Sportswear,
