On the road to Hoopfest

As all 3 on 3 fans and players know, the Spokane Hoopfest is the gold standard of the world’s 3 on 3 tournaments. Several of the BAM Jam staff are headed to Spokane this weekend to both play and volunteer at the world’s largest 3 on 3 tournament. Our goals are simply to learn more about how to run a great tournament and have a great time.

Some of us are working, some not so much

The trip to Spokane from Boise runs 6-7 hours depending on traffic. Six of us are packed into an Excursion. Our first volunteer shift starts at 4:00 PM to help check in the tournament’s court monitors. We are really looking forward to seeing how their system compares to our and if there are some areas that we can make improvements.

On Saturday, our volunteer shift starts at 8:00 AM when we will help them with their data entry stuff. Not really sure what this means exactly, but it will definitely be an experience.

Our first game is at 10:00 AM on Center Court. The competition will be tough but the weather conditions look favorable. Can’t wait for an exciting weekend!
