    Note that the tourney runs Saturday/Sunday this year.


    With confirmation of Smash Master's team, I'll have 16 out 24 open teams.

    Eurasian, assemble a team... We've only got two A level teams right now and I'd like to have a least 4.


    Right now I have 8 of 16 high school spots filled, but the majority of the rural teams (Brooks, LCI, Okotoks) haven't weighed in yet.

    I'll have all kinds of prizes for English during the two days again too.

    Wow, I've already got 22 out of 24 teams registered with someone looking to reserve one, if not both of the final spots.

    Never had to draw fill up this fast before. I'm still a month away!!!!

    Also lined up the order for 100 T-shirts that will be for sale at the tourney. I'll see about posting some photos when I get them in a few weeks.

    I'll be off to pick up the English prizes too. Subway, Quiznos, KFC, Gatorade, Bottles of Wine, Big Rock and soem of those massive bars of belgium chocolate - kids were killing themselves to win that last year.

    Now to dye 960 shuttles red and blue so we can see them. :eek:

    last year shuttles were quite slow, perfect for denver or boulder.

    Same style shuttles, only I have to dye them myself.

    We've been playing with the same ones at Village Square recently and the speed in bang on.

    The team from Grande Prairie had to drop out, so I have one spot open if anyone wants to put a team in.

    Pretty good. I did some red ones and they are very easy to see. I'll be working on the blue ones next and have back ordered pink and teal dye.

    We tried marking the cork - the shuttle still disappears half way down the court when you are facing centre.

    Ah, it's a bit of work, but being able to see in that place makes a big difference.
