The 32nd annual Toys for Tots tournament takes place in Palm Springs, California this Friday through Sunday, December 7-9.  The upper division features 36 teams split into flights with the top 18 teams going to an upper single elimination tournament and the rest going to a separate 18 team tourny.  The field of teams is as good as ever with 2 legit Major teams TDB/Racks (Purcell, Harvey, Collins) and Crazy Girls (Greinert, Brungardt, Rettenmeier, Rulli), 4 'AA' teams (Nightmare, Newbreed, Bay Area Legends, CDZ), and 6 'A' teams.  Bay Area Legends knocked off Seminoles, then Dan Smith, then CDZ Apparel last year to win it.  This is one of the more prestigious offseason events and for a great cause.

The weather looks good, the tournament also has a women's division and a couple of lower divisions and of course the coed and senior tournaments will be held over the next couple weekends.
