Thanks Golden & Green Apple participants! Next Up: Big Apple April 11-12th!

Thanks to everyone for playing in Golden and Green Apple. They were both extremely fun and rewarding to all who partook in them. We also couldn’t have done this without the hard work of all of the volunteers.

Volunteers have always been a crucial part of our organization and community. Without there countless hours of hard work we would not be able to do these tournaments at the scale we are. So thank you to the many volunteers!
