First of all, we Thank You for being an invaluable part of our tournament committee.  Without your efforts, we would not be able to host such a magnificent event.  Your time and service are appreciated and together we will make it an amazing event!

Please be aware of your assigned position for this Friday and/or Saturday.  We need extra help with setup on Friday from 6 PM - 9:30 PM at the venue and would appreciate your assistance.  Then on Saturday, please arrive at the venue before 7 AM (coffee and donuts will be available) to receive your uniform items, attend the mandatory meeting at 7:05 AM inside the gym.  Don't be late as we will be taking our group photo right at 7:05 AM!  ;-)
