2017 Texas State & District 8 Tournament in Vidor, TX
District 8 contains States: Arkansas, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and their District 8 Manager: Watson Franks
The Texas Tournament will be held June 2nd & 3rd  (Friday & Saturday)


The date for the District 8 Tournament will be the first weekend in June.  June 2-3, 2017.  The tournament will be a 3 move opening.  I am hoping to have enough to have 3 divisions.  If I can drum up enough prize money, I think we can. I am working with the local Chamber of Commerce to build up support. The tournament will coincide with the Annual Vidor Barbeque Festival.  It should be a lot of fun! I also am planning to have a local Youth Tournament that will not be sanctioned to get some young ones interested.  Watson Franks (submitted: Wed, Feb 1, 2017 at 9:13 PM)
