No Problem: Female lead singer - alternative rock - covering other peoples songs and doing their own songs as well... sorry if that sounds patronizing, I may have over-explained .

there was a nice article about it in the Review today!

Yes the tourney portion was finished the morning of 9/10. All of the ancillary activities did not carry over though, and that obviously hurt us in the 'day of' money raising we were hoping to  achieve.We still had corporate sponsorship and team registration fees that put us around $3500 raised for Wounded Warrior Project -  so a big thanks to all that supported the event!
