General Info

Welcome once again to our Christmas Holiday Tournament @ Hanks, the Kingdom of Champions.  As in past years, we invite as many teams as possible to participate and to test their skills.  Therefore, please plan on a full day of fun and competition.  Hanks High School has plenty of parking for cars and buses. We suggest that you unload on the Montwood side of the facility, since it is closest to our main gym. There are numerous restaurants and fast food establishments around our campus, all in walking distance, for snacks and for lunch.  Our KnightsQuarters Snack bar will also be open for your convenience. We would like to follow our time table as closely a possible. Therefore, we will make inspections available Friday afternoon. Please give me a call at 915-203-8902, if you are planning to come by for inspections on Friday.
