Re: Inaugural Connecticut Invitational Tournament

This vacation I will be trying to get the thing a bit more off the ground...this first (1/2) year it's mostly about trying a few matches between schools in the state to see if logistics work. Next year I hope to have more regular mini matches between participating schools, culminating...
