2009 Off Season Events Calendar

This thread is to post dates and locations of off season events.
This is only for general information about the events.

Please include the name, dates, locations and who to contact for more information. If you have updates - Please edit an existing post.

Please do not post discussions about the events here - start a new thread or continue one already open to discuss particular events.

Please be sure to just list the events – create a new thread to talk about them. Also, add them to the calendar so they show up in CD-Events, and send a PM Brandon (I hope) to get it added to the countdown. Please include a link to the event when requesting the countdown addition. Edit I took this part pretty much word for word from the 2008 thread. I hope it still applies

P.S. I do not know if it is appropriate for me to start this thread instead of someone that runs this board. I hope I do not offend anyone. :o . I just know there are a lot of events to post
