Updates and Reminders

What a semester so far! There are a few important things coming up. If you haven’t checked out the ASU Southwest Championship invitation, do so. They have a discount on school base fees if you get your payment (or purchase order) in by December first. In addition, the FLA Winter Trophy tournaments are coming up fast. Make sure you have paid your FLA dues. All tournament information can be found on the Joy of Tournaments site.


Monday Morning Updates!
