Sorry - the Fall Kickoff tournament has been cancelled due to low registrations.   I'm guessing 1) I didn't get the word out very well...  2) too soon in school hear to have one(?)  3)our venue isn't appealing.? 4) just a cycle (we used to run around 40 avg. per tourney.. but getting lower turnout each year.
