Okay, back to the events!! All you active athletes who like a little rough and tough in your sports. Then the 37TH ANNUAL CAN-AM RUGBY TOURNAMENT is right up your alley. This weekend from July 30th through August 1st, 2010 teams from all over the US will be descending into Saranac Lake and Lake Placid for this head and body smashing event. The men and ladies will be bumping, tackling and running for the goal to ensure their teams victory. (I am sure to see many banged up knees, arms, and heads,,hopefully not mine…lol!) So, if this is your cup of tea then head down to Saranac Lake this weekend for all the action.

I am talking about the LAKE PLACID ICE DANCING CHAMPIONSHIPS that will take place August 5th through the 8th.
