GSJ Families traveling this weekend,

Here is the following action plan for the Icebreaker tournament this weekend.

  • New start time will be 11am.
  • Teams will play the first pool with sets starting at 5.
  • The second round pool will start at 0.
  • The scheduled last match on Saturday will be postponed until Sunday morning.

With most of the weather conditions happening overnight this will give adequate time for any hazards to be cleared and time to reach the venue Saturday morning. Play on Saturday should be complete by 6pm.

Sunday will start at 8am and wrap up by 5pm.

Please let me know if you have any additional concerns.

We Are GSJ!!
