Fourth Annual Fall Tournament 2016

The OPA Fall Tournament took place November 18 and 19th.  Thanks to our volunteers and team entries we had a very successful tournament.  We had a total of 88 teams with 137 participants.  On Friday the mixed teams played at Willow Creek and the Owatonna Family Christian Church.  Saturday the tournament took place at the Owatonna Junior High.  Some of the participants came from as far away as Sioux Falls SD, Eau Claire WI, Pierre SD, Buffalo City WI, River Falls WI, Chippewa Falls WI, Windom, Duluth and Winona.  Several teams came from the Metro Area.  We also had teams from Mankato, Rochester, Faribault, Chatfield, St. Peter, Goodview and Owatonna.  We would like to thank our sponsors.  Court Sponsor Community Bank.  General Sponsors Fareway Foods, Dresser Family Denistry, Hy-Vee, Lowes,  and Buffalo Wild Wings.
