just wondering what is going to be happening on monday the 4th?

Brian told me that the days of tournament play will be Saturday and Sunday, but there will be other events on Friday and Monday. Actually, the official response from him was:
" Hi Ryan,This is Brian responding, the the tournament days are the sat and sun, housing is not a problem we hook it up. there is lots of things going on from friday to monday it is the fifth annual capital punishment weekend. details are comming soon.b"
We probably can't stick around for long on Monday though.

do I need a passport to get into Canada???

Only if your flying.  But next year you'll need one to cross the border by land.  Which actually reminds me....i need to renew mine.

arnt you canadian? do you guys even have passports up there, is that what you call them?

A few more details about the tournament:

 

Round robin for all of Saturday and most of sunday to give everybody lots of games.

Not
only will winning teams be regonized and awarded, but there will be
prizes for Best team name.  MVP.  Most offensive/defensive player, male
and female.  Sportsmanship award.  Mayhem award.  Maybe some others we
can think up.

Already mentioned $20 a player, includes a tee and all side events.

Beer will be $3 at the evening parties.

If
you smoke cigarettes, buy them at home cuz they are very expensive
here. $10+ a pack.  Drinking at the court is allowed (by us) but is
illegal.  Use provided cups.

We are hoping for a friendly
tournament.  All games will have a ref, you will not argue with the
ref. Everyone will be a goal judge but the ref's call is the final call.

The
NSPI sponsorship has been hand picked by our club.  We have gone for a
homegrown/independent event with no corporate sponsorship. (you will
have to buy your redbulls, sorry.)
