Its on! The 2nd Annual Big Voodoo Goaltimate Tournament is set to go on November 10th, 2012 and will be bigger and better. Last year’s inaugural tournament was the (from what we can tell) biggest goaltimate related event in a decade, with 8 teams and players from New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Atlanta and Mississippi participating. Why play? Aside from the obvious – who wouldn’t want to play in a goaltimate tournament? – It’s a goaltimate tournament in New Orleans. New Orleans is a great location for just about everything. We have ideal weather in November, some of the best food in the world and we know a thing or two about throwing a party. The competition is expected to be bigger and better this year and so will the prize money. Interested yet? Then register now! Need more details? Keep on reading…
