National Guard tourney updates

Just a quick update on what is happening with any Guard tourneys:

1) The indoor tourney I proposed got shot down because of lack of funding

Our budget got slashed with the new administration coming in and we have money just for operations until spring (i.e. May timeframe).

I had proposed getting an indoor facility and having a officiating crew come in from out of state. The tourney is still being pitched around but it wil be outside and in the May timeframe.

2) Tac-Ball Arena was not used this winter because they didn't have a means to transport it safely from site to site.

This thing is huge and you just can't get four guys and lug it around. It will need to be moved by forklift to the designated sit than erected. They are building a pallet to contain it......more to come.

3) BFTB IV....the reckoning

LOL....that would be a cool title....no but seriously. SGT Upgren and I are already working it and it will be in the fall (late August-early September) to avoid the heat we had last year and hopefully we'll get some DSU teams like the first BFTB.

There will be two classes- Open and Rookie, so you know already where a couple teams are headed and if you want a piece of them you know where to sign up.

4) There will be multiple other tournaments this summer and every recruiting station is finalizing their plans. We'll know by the end of March.


That is all, carry on....

If you put it too late, you'll get people coming back to college but you'll also have people leaving for college. I would drive back for the weekend but I really don't want it to come down to that...

So the earlier in August, the better is what I'm sayin..

I'm not the only one going to college next fall either. I just don't want to miss it is all.

The date for BFTB IV is still in the air because the college doesn't have a finalized schedule of events for the fall semester. We want the rodeo arena again because we haven't found a good alternative site.

We are more or less setting this up around their events. We might know for sure next week what they have going.

If anyone can think of a better area let us know.....

(We were thinking the softball fields on the southside but i think Park & Rec wouldn't go for it.. )

Too bad they built hawks point. The old flag football fields would have been perfect over there... I think.

Was just going to post it, although if you're at UND, Casey, you and I could carpool down.

Williston tournament in June

I just talked with SGT Dingeman today and he will be running a two-day tourney in Williston at the County Fair on June 23-24. he know it's during the week but its the only days he can get the arena.

It will start on Tuesday night (5-man double elim) under the lights and continue on Wednesday with a 3-man in the morning and a Pump tourney in the afternoon.

So this should give you guys some time to plan for it!!!

Williston Tourney change #1

Fair board just contacted SGT Dingeman and told him he couldn't have the arena on Tuesday because of a rodeo event they had over looked.

So he told me that he will now run the 5-man Wednesday night (start at 8pm) and Thursday have the 3-man (9am) and pump (1pm) tourneys.

Call SGT Raymond Dingeman at 1-701-770-3072 to get the waivers and pre-register

That is all for now....
