REGION 2 Xcel Invitational – 2018
In response to your requests, you received the exciting news that there will be a Region 2 Xcel Invitational the weekend of April 27-29, 2018. Bids for this hosting this invitational are due to Marian DeWane (Region 2 Administrative Chair firstname.lastname@example.org) by June 1. I can only guess at the number of athletes that might attend the Invitational but if you would attend, please send me a list of numbers by division that might come. That way I can give those who are considering bidding a rough idea of numbers.
