CASS will be having a Billiards tournament on July 29th from 1-2:30pm at the Hidden Spot, located just across the street from the office, at 2323 32 Ave NE. You can sign up with someone else as a team, or you can sign up as a single player and I will place you with another single player to form a team. Please RSVP asap with CASS reception, so that I can start planning and know how many tables to book!
