Homewood-Flossmoor 2nd Annual Pop Culture Tournament

Post by msacks »

Homewood-Flossmoor High School in Flossmoor, IL will be mirroring the Ohio Trash set on Saturday, January 5th, 2019. The tournament will start at 9a, and expect to end around 4p. The tournament is 5-on-5. Entry fee is $15 per player, with standard teams having a maximum of 5 players. If teams has less than 5 players, they may either need to have others registering individually join them, or may register as a complete team for a full 5-person team price of $75. In other words, come to play as a team of 2-4, but you need to either be willing to have others you don't know join your team, or pay for "blank" spaces. Teams of more than 5 players will be considered, but philosophically would like as few people sitting out as possible. If you'd really want to play that way, we would still charge the $15 per player fee.
