Each team will compete twice on Saturday and twice on Sunday, with teams advancing to a third game for tournament play. 

Held in the South Wing, games start Saturday at 8:00 a.m. with the last game beginning at 9:00 p.m. Competition begins Sunday at 8:00 a.m. and the last game is at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $8 per person (ages 12 and up).  Parking at the Kentucky Exposition Center is $8 per vehicle.
