NOTICE: As of 8/31/2015, TOURNAMENTS will not be allowed Friday, Saturday, or Sunday between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day. Tournaments may be approved for weekdays.
Due to the drought, the park is down to a single launch ramp and wait times are such that we can not ensure a prompt afternoon launch time for tournament participants. When the park has a second launch ramp again, we will revisit the issue of tournaments on summer weekends.
