"May the 4th be with you." It's been a good calendar joke since Star Wars exploded into our culture in 1977. Hosts of a senior high sevens tournament in Kelowna are challenging teams to dress for galactic domination on May 4th, when the tournament plays out at UBC Okanagan. Will tournament officials allow Darth helmets on the pitch? Will Obi-Two Kenobi (Obi-Wan's twin brother) make an appearance? How many people will say, "Yoda man!" to passing strangers? You can only know by attending this competitive and fun-focused tournament on May 4.
The tournament is organized into two pools.
Aberdeen Hall Gryphons
Rutland Secondary Voodoos
Pleasant Valley Saints from Armstrong
Mount Boucherie Bears
Kelowna Christian Knights
Sa-Hali Sabres from Kamloops
After a round-robin tournament within the pools, teams will compete for a spot in the Bowl, Plate, and Cup finals.
The first game of the day is at 9:00 AM, as the MB Bears take on the KCS Knights. The whole schedule is listed below.
