Now that the Spring season is underway, it is time to start thinking about what to do as summer approaches - and to get ready for the METRO TOURNAMENT over Memorial Day weekend. This year will be our 34th annual tournament (we must be doing something right!), and we are known for our fun and friendly atmosphere; small divisions - allowing for much closer alignment of teams - and competitive play. We look forward to seeing you this year for the biggest and best tournament ever.
The METRO will be held over Memorial Day weekend - May 26th and 27th - at Craig Ranch, our outstanding home fields for the past five years. Registration will be Friday night, May 25th, at our host hotel, the Sheraton McKinney Hotel, just a stone's throw from the fields. We have negotiated a very, very special rate for you there. Tournament entry deadline is Thursday, May 3rd, at 5:00 pm! Our hotel block is held until April 24th, so rooms must be booked early. Please make you plans to stay Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, and get a special discounted Tournament rate pf $129.00/night. The hotel is holding a limited block of rooms; we always run out of rooms, so please make your reservations there early.
No matter what your level of plan, no matter where you come from, the METRO welcomes you... so tell you friends, too, and give them the challenge: let's take home the (beautiful!) trophies from the METRO!
Yours very truly,
JERRY DEATON, Tournament Director
