Day of- what you ned to know: please meet at the Moda Center at the Box Office at 1:00pm (they let us in at around 1:10). Once in the Moda, get dressed and be ready to tip sharply at 1:29pm. We only have 1 hour to fit 60 minutes worth of games so be ready to go- AND very important- inbetween games is critical- once a game ends- within seconds- head to your next matchup- and be ready to tip right away. This is about maximizing your playing time on the Moda Center floor. This is not about winning- save that for the league- sure try to win- but the focus is playing 3 games on the Moda Center floor.
Parking: you can park for free at/in the Moda Center parking lot; park in the lot 'connected to' the Moda Center.
Schedule: Each game is 15 minutes long (running time); it is important that we switch courts immediately (clock runs during the switch) to maximize our playing time on this court (your matchup and court is listed below on the schedule).
