State Tourney Information

Here is what I know thus far:

Tournament begins on Friday, February 14, 2014.  Each team will play 2 pool play games: 1 Friday evening/night and a second one Saturday morning.  Then the teams will be seeded into a single elimination tournament and we will play through Sunday or until we lose.  Unless something changes our first game will be at 5:30 pm (EST) Friday.  We will work with school to have players dismissed early to allow time to travel and check into hotel, etc. 

Rooms have been booked at the Comfort Suites.  8 rooms have been booked for the team and there is an additional block of 10 rooms for parents/families.  The cost will be $84.00 night plus tax. To reserve a room you will need to contact the hotel directly no later than 3pm Friday, February 7, 2014.  Hotel information is as follows:

 Comfort Suites

3060 Fieldstone Way, Lexington, KY, US, 40513          Phone: (859) 296-4446

The hotel provides Morning Breakfast and it features eggs, meat, yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal, waffles and more.  Players will eat breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning at the hotel.  Each player will be responsible for lunch money both days.  Funds from the booster club will provide dinner Friday, Saturday and if need be Sunday night. 

Friday night dinner will be at Gattitown Lexington @ 7pm.  Each player will receive buffet, drink, $5 game card.

Saturday night dinner is TBA.

Our booster club account currently does not have enough funds to cover the cost of this trip.  Therefore, any business or personal donations will be greatly appreciated.  The estimated cost of the trip is $2,500 and we currently have $750 in donations thus leaving us about $1,750 short.  Any suggestions as to how we can raise the necessary funds in a short period of time will be greatly appreciated.
