I just left Memorial Gym in downtown Kokomo… and man, is it awesome!!!

We’ve got it all set up for 22 teams to compete on Saturday.

A couple of teams have thrown their hat into the mix…

team 67, the HOT team!
team 246, Boston Univ.-Mass Pep.

Yeah, we’ve got a team coming all the way from Boston!! wooohooo!

Looking around Memorial Gym, it reminded me much of the Welsh-Ryan Arena at Northwestern Univ., where the Motorola Midwest Regional was held.

Get this… the pits will be located about 30 feet from the playing field! Competing teams will be able to be in their pits and watch matches at the SAME TIME!

So, even if your team isn’t playing, c’mon down to Kokomo and watch a great competition.
