Here is more important information regarding Nationals. First off, I have lost my cell phone and just activated a new one. If you have sent me a text message in the last three days and you have not heard from me…..that’s why. Also, in losing my phone, I have also lost all of my contact information.
Now for some Nationals highlights.
* Schedule is now available and a link posted. Here it is again. Click Here for Schedule
* I am missing the following documentation. If you have not given it to me, I am leaving tomorrow morning. You can drop it off at my house, or please bring it to me Wednesday when you arrive. It is important that I have it. If your name is on the list below and you have given me the documentation, please call me ASAP. (845-264-5078)

* For those staying on campus, there is cable, but you need to bring your own TV. Rooms are air-conditioned. Need to bring your own pillows and linens….sleeping bag will also work.
* If you looked at the schedule, you will see that all games are over fairly early in the afternoon. There are contests Thursday evening, and a tournament barbecue on Friday. For those staying on campus, the fee for the barbecue is only $3 and $12 for everyone else. IF YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING (AND IM HOPING WE GET A GOOD TURN OUT…..IT SHOULD BE FUN), YOU NEED TO REGISTER WEDNESDAY EVENING.
* Please make sure you bring all of your gear…..sneakers, uniforms, etc. Believe it or not, some athletes do forget and it doesnt make it fun.
* Each team is responsible for either doing the clock or keeping the book. I need to have parents help out here for each game for each team.
* The tournament director has informed me that every spectator must wear their wristbands for the week. I think they are going to enforce it this year.
* There will be movies each night for anyone interested in relaxing in air conditioned rooms! They will be basketball related.
* All teams will play at least one game on Saturday. Single elimination tournament should go no later than Saturday afternoon.
I think thats it for now….see you all in PA!
