The IAS Board is already planning cool ways to showcase Irish culture at the tournament, so come be a part of that! We want YOUR ideas and your help to make this tournament AMAZING!!! Some ideas the IAS board has been discussing:

*IAS Irish Cottage float on site as Failte Wagon – Jack Kennedy will bring
*Irish coin toss for each match done by IAS officers (camogie) & IAS princesses (hurling); each coin in presentation box w/ calligraphy by Betsy Kennedy for winning captains at after party
*Face painting & Irish photo screens (leprechaun & goat) for kids of all ages by Joy Brady-Boyd
*Irish national anthem included in opening ceremonies – Edward Brash
*IAS set of 32 County Flags paraded in opening ceremonies – Jim Hagerty
*IAS info table/tent – newsletters, Irish soda bread & other Irish goodies for sale, etc. – Kate Sandoval
*IAS Irish Volunteers in IAS baseball caps – Joe Brady

CnamB is putting together gift bags for all camogs who come to VB to participate in the tournament; if you have ideas or items to donate for this, please let Lynnette Fitch Brash know!
