A big thank you to all those that officiated and helped out at The Pond in Avon, CT during the 2023 Pre-Regional Tournament this past weekend!  Your help is always greatly appreciated!

Also appreciate the support as the tournament moved from 3 days into 2 days as a result of the volume of water we needed to contend with.

Friday Stats:  32 Jump Pulls plus 34 Trick Pulls taking 8 hrs 29 mins.
