Indy Juniors Classic (A peek ahead) – April 16-17

The Indiana Fairgrounds, hosting the 2016 Indy Jrs Classic.

The Indiana State Fairgrounds, site of the 2016 Indy Jrs Classic.

The Indy Juniors Classic is a large scale tournament played at six different sites. In the 16s Division there are 32 teams entered. As evidenced by the tremendous number of Sunday afternoon and evening hits on this website, a great many folks look forward to seeing/reading about the team’s tournament exploits. Unfortunately, due to another commitment I am unable to attend this tournament and will not be back in town till late the following week.

I hate to leave folks disappointed so hopefully Linda Seitter will take some pictures while I am gone and I will use them to update our blog when I return. Since that will be well after the tournament I thought I would create this post to tide you over. The below pictures are from my dream last night regarding our team’s Indy Juniors Classic performance. Unfortunately, being an engineer I only dream in black and white so the pictures are not quite up to their usual quality. It was a great tournament and the players and team responded to the challenges. You won’t want to miss it!

Thought for the Tournament
