Flood Relief 2016
In March of 2016, after the flooding, we were approached about doing an event for those affected by the flood in our area. We collaborated Red Planet and CCAM (Christian Church at Minden) to bring a series of tournaments to raise money to help families in Webster Parish. We held four qualifying tournaments at Red Planet and the finals at the fairgrounds with a family fun day with the money being donated to CCAM to help with their flood relief efforts.
