They will demonstrate their skills as they compete throughout the indoor series events toward the indoor championships to be held next spring.

The event will be safe for spectators new to the sport and fans alike.

The Cloverdale venue will also provide a concession and beer garden, as well as 50/50 tickets, door prizes and more.

Spectator admission is $10 at the door (cash only), with children under 12 free.
