Lastly, there has been an update regarding the Bluegrass tournament. We were not accepted into the tourney due to being a new club seeking entry and not enough space to accommodate. There are currently 250 teams on the waiting list, so we weren’t the only ones! 

We have entered the Circle City Classic in Indianapolis, IN on the same weekend, March 4th and 5th. Each team's game schedule has been updated, so that will be reflected in the sports engine app under your teams schedule.
