Logistics for Ozark Tournament Weekend 11/10-11/2012

Memphis will play 3 matches over the weekend.  We will play Pittsburg State University at 12:15 on the main pitch, Oklahoma State University at 2:45 on pitch 3 and Sunday we will play The Bombers Academy U-20 (select side).

The tournament is at the Ozark Rugby Club home pitch which is private property.

Address to the pitch:  14301 Dineen    Little Rock, AR

We will stay at the Holiday Inn Express Airport Little Rock, AR

Hotel Address:  3121 Bankhead Dr Little Rock, AR 72206 – The hotel blocked a few extra rooms for parents.  Parents  need to mention the University of Memphis to get the $82.00 per night rate.  Call 501-490-4000 for reservations.   Hotel has an indoor pool, so bring your trunks to work out the soreness.

Room Assignments:  Coach Mimms is getting car and room appointments together now.  We’ll get the details worked out at practice on Thursday.

When we leave: We will gather at the Central parking lot at 7:00 am on Saturday to leave for Little Rock.  Construction on I-40 at Brinkley can have traffic backed up for as much as an hour, so we need to leave early.

Team Dinner:  Team dinner is planned at Golden Corral, probably around 6:00 pm.  (5001 Warden Rd  N Little Rock, AR 72116)  it is not real close, but it is a lot of food for $10.00.

Team meeting Sunday am in a meeting room at the hotel.  The exact time will set at dinner Saturday night.
