“Really exciting for us, we are hosting the major tournament, all the builds that go on, from the structures behind us here to all the vendors and all the spectators that come to the tournament…We start planning this going back to last winter and to see everything come together. It’s an exciting week and hopefully your weatherman will tell us about nice weather and it looks like its going to be a great week for us.”
