2015 Eastern Regional Tournament

I am excited to announce that the NC Tigers have accepted an invitation to participate in the USAFL Eastern Regional Tournament in Fort Lauderdale Florida. The tournament is to be held on Saturday April 18th at one of the most stunning venues we will ever have the opportunity to play on (See picture below).


Crikey, mate.

The event will be a tournament style event, similar to the format we play at Nationals so we will have the opportunity to play in multiple games, and it should be one of the most fun events on our calendar for the year.
Oh and did I mention it is in FLORIDA??? If a quick look out the window right now doesn’t inspire you to commit to represent the Tigers on this great trip then you may not have a pulse.
I have already gone ahead and researched flights for this weekend and there are quite a number of reasonable options. On Southwest.com there is a flight out on Friday evening (17th) returning on Sunday afternoon (19th) for $162 return right now into Fort Lauderdale. Priceline.com and expedia.com also have a range of great options into either Miami International or into Fort Lauderdale for around the $200 range total. However, I would advice booking your tickets now if you want to lock in these type of prices. The field/hotel location is easily accessible from either of those 2 airports so feel free to book flights into either one. I have already booked my flights for the event and am very excited to get down there, play some good footy, and enjoy a great trip with my Tigers teammates.

What do you need to do now?
Mark your calendar and commit to represent the Tigers in one of the most fun and exciting events on our calendar by replying to my email and letting me know you are in so we can begin to get an idea of what personnel we will be taking with us.
Then, go ahead and book your flight down anytime on Friday, and a return flight on Sunday. No need to worry about transportation to/from the airport yet, we will get all that organized once we know who is flying in when and where.
Do not hesitate to pull the trigger on flights for this event. You are GUARANTEED lots of footy and a good time. the USAFL plans on combining any sides who cannot field a full 18 so there is no risk of cancelled matches. The Tigers ARE going to this tournament and on the back of our recent National Championship, we’re going to take it by storm and have a darn good time doing so.
Once you have booked your flight please pass on your flight details to me so we can begin organizing transportation.
