Initially this was going to be at OU Grizzly Oaks. However, Oakland about a month ago informed us that they were moving holes in order to put in tennis courts.

As of right now we are working on a Temp course in Pontiac at a large and beautiful park. The Park district has approved it, but we are a little short on baskets. We are looking for chainstars to assist in putting this temp course together. In addition if this is successful Pontiac is considering possibly adding the course as a permanent addition to the park if they can get the funding.

Do we have volunteers willing to bring some chainstars?

I also want to thank John Minicuci and Motor City in assisting us with the relocation of this tournament.

Registration Officially Opens this Saturday evening March 9th at 5pm on our website At that time we will announce the course/park here, on the calendar, facebook, and our website. We Thank you for your patience and assistance!

So this tournament possibily wont even be held at firefighters and the location may change before the day of the tournament?

Hold the tourney at firefighters and might fill. Other courses scare people. You might want to call John.
