Yes we are headed to the Music City to host a senior level box tournament. After a few years of players asking for such an event in Nashville we are excited to make it happen. This tournament is a collaborative effort with Nate Glaser who is a Nashville native and had been goring the box game for over a decade. We are very excited to work with Nate on what will sure to be a must attend event for years to come!
With a charity component we are also happy to be working with the Catch A Lift foundation. Not only will there be a Catch A Lift team we will also be raising money for this excellent organization. The Catch A Lift Fund enables post 9/11 combat wounded veterans all over the U.S. to recover and rehabilitate both physically and mentally through physical fitness, motivation and support.
