What? The 2018 Romp at the Swamp
When? Sunday June 3, 2018 from 8am - 5pm
The grade 67 team has games at 11am, 1pm, and 2pm
The grade 45 teams have games from 8 to 4:30 More info below.
Where? 18 Pocono Rd, Denville NJ . Across the street form St Claires
Who? All of our players, grades 4-7.
Please attend! We paid for everyone.
Why? Tourny's are fun and its a nice opportunity to try some new moves and
a great way to end the year or start the summer.
Our grade 67 will compete as one team in the "6th grade" bracket.
(I don't know why we aren't in the 67, that's where they put us.)
We will split the entire 4-5 team into two separate teams,
a morning (A) and an afternoon (B) team.
The morning team has games at 8, 9, and 11:30
The afternoon team has games at 12:30, 1:30, and 4:00
The "A" and "B" are not split by ability/talent/etc.
NOTE: the above times may change depending upon what RockDen decides to do. I'll update this ASAP when I hear about changes.
There is a $5.00 parking "suggested donation".
ROMP FAMILY CHECKLIST:
Sunlotion and bug spray (It literally used to be a swamp!)
An extra cooler/ice.
We are bringing a few cases of water and gatoraid.
If you like something different, bring your own drink(s).
Lunch. They hotdogs etc there.
Some $ for snacks or souvenirs.
$5 for parking
We are going to try to get there early (7ish) and put up 3 popup tents, so far one for the 67 and one for each 45 team. If you have one and want to come early...
The weather should be really good. Cooler, less humid, and overcast. maybe a little sprinkle to cool us off later in the day.
Take lots of pictures of the boys. If you can get some team photos as well that'd be great.
If you have access to it, I suggest using Permethrin spray this afternoon. It is the only tick repellent that actually works. It is NOT for skin. It goes on shoes, socks, pants, chairs, hats, etc. Spray it on and let it dry completely in advance. Once dry it doenst absorb into your skin at all. It is safe for dogs but is lethal to cats. It works on ticks better than any other chemical, but it should NOT go on skin wet. It will alst through a couple washings as well. It also works on most other creepy crawlies. Its been a wet spring. Ticks are the devil and Lymes is no joke.
If you are looking for something to do this evening, Bridgewater Raritan HS is hosting the first round of the HS varsity tournament of champions. MtnLakes vs Pingry, and Northern Highlands vs Watchung HIlls.
4 VERY good programs competing with one another.
Wednesday is Summit vs Delbarton, 2 of the best teams in the Country.
