July 27, 2011

As of late last week, Tournament Executive Director Bob Meshishnek and his capable volunteer staff had recruited a field of 20 teams that will play in two divisions (separate brackets for 10-year-olds and 12-year-olds). Those 20 teams will likely swell Colville’s Rendezvous weekend population by from 350 to 400 people.
