I write this letter hoping you are doing well and you had a successful season. This is a letter in regards to the Junior High Boys Tournament at Okawville Jr. High. Last year’s tournament was a big success with four gyms being used in the building. It included 6 girl state 7 boy state qualifying teams. Below is the general tournament information not much has changed. Teams that played last year are receiving this letter first. Also this year we are implementing a non-refundable deposit fee of $25. This will guarantee your spot for the tournament and not cause problems trying to find teams last minute like last year. If you would like you may send the entire $100 entry fee we will keep track of it. You can make the checks out to Okawville High School. After April 1st we plan to contact some other schools to fill in spots that have opened up. If you are no longer coaching would you please send us a message about that and forward this letter to the new coach.
