HS WAISAL Basketball Tournament-Dakar Senegal Thursday February 2 to Sunday February 5 2012

We have changed the date of the tournament from Feb 23-26 to Feb 2 -5 because the Senegalese election will be on Sunday February 26 and we did not want to host this tournament the same weekend.

We will need to house/host between 80 High School boys and girls for this tournament. We will be asking the HS student body to help with the hosting. I will send out hosting/housing letter to all HS parents.
