What Sets This Tournament Apart:
The combination of Colorado scenic views (Rocky Mountains), entertainment, but most importantly the people who return year after year for this tournament. The fan loyalty is unbelievable and we are so grateful to everyone who has participated in this tournament year after year.
Third Assist's Take:
This tournament is situated over President’s day weekend in the heart of the Colorado winter. Perfect timing yes, but also appears to be the perfect location for a getaway tournament or even easier, a fun drive from the Denver metro area. It’s situated in the heart of Colorado’s ski country with Rocky Mountain views and plenty of snow. On our side we think the location is the selling point, but it doesn’t lack in production either. A couple years running and over 200 teams means this may be one of the top tournaments you'll find out west.
