Champlin Park Tournament

Uncategorized
We are almost into November which means our tournament is right around the corner.  Expect a parent e-mail about that very soon. IMPORTANT: At cooper on Saturday is the craft fair.  As such, there will be LOTS of cars there getting into the building.  I will try to position the bus closer to the student lot which is on the WEST side of the building - by the rock. JUDGES: We are currently looking for two more judges for this weekend.  Parents: If you, or if you know someone, who might be interested in judging please let me know.  There is no experience needed.  We will train you.  You will get paid.  You will get fed.  It's a pretty good deal.  If interested or need more information e-mail me please.…
