what teams have already said they are entering this?
The wolverines are hosting this? It will be in Detroit?
Where does it say this will be held in Detroit?
The East Central Wolverines are hosting and it will be held in hartford city, in
We will be hosting this in Hartford City, IN. We have several teams interested in this. Pendleton Pirates, Richmond Pheonix, Randolph County Ravens and a couple of others. I've also been in contact with Coach KC of the Stampede.
It doesn't say Detroit anywhere. You are right, but there is a Wolverine team in hardin county up in Michigan. Just wanted clarification on the level of competition. thank you
you're welcome have a great holiday everyone.
need some contact info for the ravens or phoenix about the snow bowl
John Walser owner of the Phoenix. You can Call (765-546-2002) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not that it means anything to this topic...
but I'm pretty sure that the Hardin County Wolverines are out of Kentycky
They just have similar helmets to that college team in Michigan...I think they still play football in Michigan

What time does it start, is it a one day event and how many games will each team get to play?
We're looking at starting it at 10 or 11 am. We'll be having 2 games going on at the same time.
Double elimination... Looking at it being a 1 day event.
I believe the Hardin County Wolverines have changed their name to Kentucky Wolverines and the WCW has changed their names to the Metro Detroit Wolverines. I don't think there is even a Harin County in Michigan.
so u will play atleast 2 games and up to idk like 4 or 5 and its 12 minutes quarters and its all in one day?
I am all for fun in the snow, but lets be honest with ourselves. Double elimination tourney with 12 min 4 quarter games in 10 degree weather and full pads during the off season?
I suggest a modification or two or a line full of ambulances ready for 2 of every 3 players that participate.
How about 2 ten minute halves?
How about 7 minute quarters and 10 minutes half time with single elimination. This was my original idea. This other was other peoples ideas that sent me info.
10 minute halfs would be a great idea also. Team fees need paid by the 10th of January
IF ANY TEAM NEEDS A DL IN ANY OFF SEASON TOURNAMENT GAMES PLEASE LET ME KNOW........firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are going to do a double elimination tourney, i would do the 10 min halfs.
I have a question, will there be a place to warm up between games, and will there be heaters on the side lines?
yes... we're trying to get the middle school gym, but haven't heard anything from them yet. yes we're looking at trying to get kerosene heaters for the sidelines
