Who hasn't wanted a prom night do-over? Maybe the punch stained your dress, the music was too loud, your date left you on the dance floor?
Well, Friday night's your chance, thanks to a full-contact, prom-themed match played by the Jackson Hole Moose Rugby team. The tomfoolery is a chance to garner interest in the sport and raise funds so the 40-some "ruggers" can travel to tournaments across the state.
“We love to do ridiculous things and make fools of ourselves, and this is a great way to do it,” women's team president Nat Smith said.
Sequin-clad spectators can pay to make the game even more ridiculous thanks to add-in options like throwable pies, costume swaps and piggy back rides.
Men's team president Brad Walsh is currently hacking the sleeves off of an old tuxedo to prepare for the co-ed match, which is set to kick-off Friday at 6:30 p.m. on the rodeo grounds grass field. Walsh said the guys aren’t planning to go easy on the gals and warned some of his teammates can be quite competitive.
"Nobody’s going to be smashing heads, but it’ll be full-contact,” he said.
