This is a non-sanctioned tournament, which just means that everyone is welcome to play.

“There is no age limit,” organizer Mike Norton said. “Our average age is about 60, but we would like kids out there. We have had high school kids out there. As long as they can throw it to the other end. We are expecting a big turnout, which is about 10-12 teams. It will be a double elimination tourney.”
