The event has expanded capacity due to the number of teams competing in MI. Doing this required a venue change. The Event will be held at the River Raisin National Battlefield Park a mere 5 miles from the college. The event will be in the visitor center of the park located at 333 North Dixie Highway, Monroe, MI 48162. Looking forward to seeing you.
