The national tournament will be held at the Colin Powell Center in south Minneapolis. If you are looking for non-stop action, you will want to check this out!

  1. Michael – thanks much for the info on the tournament. Just penciled it on the calendar – Linda and I will be there to cheer on the Avalanche! Terrific to have it here in the Cities – hope lots of folks come out to enjoy the action.

    It was great to see you and your Dad at the Twins game yesterday. We needed some of the hits and runs from Saturday’s game! Anxious to track your thoughts and comments on the team as the summer rolls on and we get closer to the trading deadline.
