We’re sorry if you missed our December Mario Kart Gaming Tournament. Surprises abounded again, as new players scored high against veterans during the preliminary rounds. The final race was neck and neck as Brett, who won in a previous tournament, combatted two brothers to determine first, second and third places. Brett took third, so brothers Ethan and Asher took home the first and second place Game Stop gift cards. Our next tournament will be on April 1. Don’t like Mario Kart? Please give us suggestions for another great tournament game. It must be rated E or E 10+.

If you weren’t at our 3rd Mario Kart tournament, you missed a lot of excitement! 25 students, in 3rd through 8th grade, played for 3 hours of riveting races. Everyone was a skilled racer. Once again, our winner, Lorenzo, had only registered that morning for the games, as had our second-placer, David. But late registration doesn’t mean anything–the third place racer, Jack, registered well in advance.
