In regards to this weekend’s Owatonna tournament, we play Friday at 6:30 PM, Bruce will let us know when to arrive.
Owatonna McKinley Complex
1050 22nd Street NE
Owatonna, MN 55060
Following the game, the plan is to get pizzas and have the team eat together in the hotel lobby. To help w/ ordering, please message Sara (via GroupMe or text: 612-272-1857) by 9 AM Friday morning with how many will be eating pizza. If I don’t hear from you, I will assume you are ordering something else on your own. I will place the order, divide the order equally and ask that you Venmo (@sara-lindlief) me; Drinks are on your own.
We play at 8:30 AM.
Owatonna Middle School
500 15th Street NE
Since we don’t know when / if we play again on Saturday (depends on Friday / Sat outcome), I do not have anything arranged for during the day. We could watch the other Tonka team play, head back to the hotel and relax/ swim, or do something on your own. The hotel is near a movie theater (https://cectheatres.com/theatre-pop/70/Northwoods-Cinema-10 ) so that could be an option as well.
Should we play at 4:30 PM Saturday, I made a reservation at SpareTime Bowling and Entertainment (https://spare-time-fun.com/) at 7 PM; reservation is under Sara. The team can play arcade games, play laser tag, eat, and / or bowl. Should they decide to bowl, Coach has asked, and will remind the team, to take it easy on their arms. Please help remind your player of this as well.
We will order off the menu and each family will be responsible for their own order / payment; please be patient if they are short-staffed . If we don’t play at 4:30, I am sure this reservation can be moved up. It can be canceled should there be a change of plans by the team.
Re Sunday, nothing planned except games. Game times will depend on pool play; Bruce will let the team know when to arrive and location.
Coach has asked for coolers of Gatorade/ Powerade, extra water, etc for both Sat and Sunday.
In addition, he said that we will need tents / canopies. If you have one, and/ or willing to bring coolers, please do so and respond to this message so we know who is bringing what.
Unfortunately neither Jeff nor I will be in Owatonna due to our younger kids having out of town tournaments as well. Parker will be there with Jeff’s dad, John.
Thank you, and let’s make it 4/4 on tournament play!!
