Due to the recent travel changes with the Ohio and Illinois travel restrictions, we unfortunately had some teams pull out and we had to make some bracket adjustments. We were able to add some teams from the waitlist.  The updated brackets will be published tonight on our website.  

The game schedule for the event will be posted Monday by midnight.  We normally like to the post schedules at least a week in advance, but the delay was unavoidable due to the last-minute bracket adjustments.  We appreciate your patience and understanding while we work behind the scenes to ensure a safe and fun event for everyone.
