Basketball Tournament

Our ward hosts a basketball tournament every year for the past 45 years! Anyone who has ever lived in the Rosecrest 1st ward can play. They have a men's league which consisted of 10 teams (12 yrs old and up), 2 youth teams (8-11 years old) and 2 woman's teams. I can coach of one of the teams!!

There were posters all over the gym, they made risers and set-up chairs everywhere, has the nursery open and the halls blocked off, and in other other gym the YM and YW served food for their annual fundraiser. There was a lot going on and it was so fun! Games were Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.
 The youth played two nights and Will and Jackson were on the same team the first night they played.

Scott even played, but his team didn't do so well and only played twice and were eliminated from the tournament. It was fun to watch all the teams play, eat food, mingle and have a wonderful time with my ward family.

What a great tradition!
