Immediately following the Alumni Tournament Championship game, there will be an Open Tournament that will be open to anyone for participation.

This tournament will be a double-elimination tournament with two 20-minute halves, a five-minute halftime and a 10-minute warm-up period.

All proceeds from the Greg Wilkin Memorial Tournaments will benefit the Greg Wilkin Memorial Scholarship fund that is awarded to graduating FFA members of Lynchburg-Clay FFA.

The Greg Wilkin Memorial Scholarship fund was created in 1984 in honor of a former FFA member, Greg Wilkin, who was tragically killed in a farming accident. This tournament event is the only form of fundraising that creates funding for the scholarship. Monetary donations can be sent to the Lynchburg-Clay FFA, 6762 state Route 134 S., Lynchburg, Ohio 45142 to benefit the scholarship fund.

All participants are asked to email their information by Dec. 14, 2020 to stacie.rhonemus@lclsd.org, or by calling  Ms. Rhonemus at (937) 364-2250 ext. 11209. Official rules and brackets will be released by Dec. 16 on the Lynchburg-Clay Schools website: www.lclsd.org.
