It is that time of year again. We have started to plan for Thunderdome â€“ The Pearl Jam. This is our 30th anniversary/reunion and we are hoping to make it the best ever. To begin with, the girls are back! This alone should make it entertaining!
For those that donâ€™t know, Thunderdome is a futsal tournament hosted by Crowder College in the Bob Snelling Gymnasium. It will be played on March 9th and 10th. The cost will be $175 per team with each team guaranteed three games. All games will be 12 minute halves. The complete draw, schedule, rules and guidelines will be sent to those teams committing to participate by March 1st 2012. Please be aware that we will be strictly limited to 32 menâ€™s teams and 8 womenâ€™s teams on a first come first served basis.
As always, we ask that each team have same color Jerseys with numbers. There will be Trophies and Prizes for the winning teams and the Tournament MVPs. There are always numerous attractions and events that coincide with Thunderdome â€“ we will keep you informed of these details as we finalize plans.
The host hotel will be the Neosho Inn. Please make arrangements directly with them at 417-451-6500. Please be sure to tell them you are with Thunderdome for whatever discounts they make available. Rooms will be held in Block until one week prior to the event.
Tournament shirts will be available at the registration stand for $12 each. This yearâ€™s special will be Soccernastics CDâ€™s for $15 (while they last) with all proceeds going to Crowderâ€™s Alumni Soccer Scholarship Fund.
