2. Yamato Cup 2015 (Makeup) Sunday March 20 9:00am to 6:00pm

The first of this year's two Yamato Cups will be held Sunday March 20 in Musashi Urawa. Format will be similar to past years- a round robin tournament followed by playoffs and the crowning of a champion. I am hoping for 5 teams this year including 2 teams from Nagoya. Fees are expected to be JPY 50,000 per team or roughly JPY 6,000 a player


I need help pulling this off. Please let me know if you are willing to help out in the planning and execution of the event. Most importantly I need 3 captains and 3 goaltenders. Anybody willing to captain a team please reply to this message or contact me at or sign up for the event on by clicking this link:
