Duluth Arrowhead Recap
Thanks for playing in the Arrowhead tournament and benefit for last year's Champion Renee Lange (Tenacious Divas, WBB). In honor of Renee and her fight with Breast cancer, the MVA donated funds from Arrowhead to the Susan G Koman for the Cure fund. Renee participated in the 2013 Arrowhead in the WBB division with her team Tenacious Divas who finished in 2nd place. Check out Renee’s blog site - http://detoursoflife.blogspot.com.
New! Facebook: The MVA has a new Group for MVA members only. Go to the MVA page and request to be added. If you are an MVA member or play R4's tournaments or leagues you qualify to be added. The page has event postings for every tournament and will allow MVA players/teams to comment if they want to play, if they are looking for players or to see what teams are playing. What teams are in and space left in the tournament may be posted, too. Starting in 2012, the MVA will use it more to post tournament results/pictures quicker. Please do not post other tournaments or leagues without emailing firstname.lastname@example.org first.
