Thanks Aldo !
Speaking of Lone Star Regional, 1429, 441 and 2587 have setup a practice scrimmage at Reagan HS on Feb. 14th and Feb 15th.
If your team is considering coming to Houston Scrimmage, please RSVP.
I have not seen very many Houston teams sign-up, so please sign up soon so we can plan for food and space resources.

Do you have any video of the shooter in action? It looks like it can toss an Orbit Ball pretty far!

We are running in low speed shooting mode. Our max range is 8-10 feet but we don't expect to shoot that far in a match unless its a last second desperation shot.
