West Women's All Star Tryouts—Tryouts for the 2009 West 7’s team will be at the tournament as well. The selection process will include your participation in the Lone Star Classic 7’s tournament on Saturday and fitness testing and camp on Sunday. Twenty one players will be selected based on tournament play on Saturday for the selection camp on Sunday. If you do not have a team to play with on Saturday, contact us and we will assist you in finding a team. Please contact Laura Hertel with your interest in participating in West 7’s. She will provide you with additional details.

Debutante Ball—Last year we had over 50 women participate in the ball, it was dresses galore. If you are not sure what a Debutante Ball is, check out the write-up, videos, and pictures from last year

Pub Crawl—As usual, Dallas will be having a pub crawl/block party and we have been told this is reason enough to attend this tournament.

The Lone Star Classic is proud to have been named a TOLA Championship Series qualifier. This year for the first time the Women will also have a TOLA series.

Please contact Filip Keuppens(Men's) or Wendy Young(Women's) with questions or for registration.
