Big Wave Dave Birthday Bash Extravaganza CANCELED

2022 — Claremont, CA/US

UPDATE: April 4, 2022


Dear Coaches,

The last couple years have been hard on all of us, and our collective exhaustion is reflected in the entry numbers in the Big Wave Dave Birthday Extravaganza. We don’t believe it is in our best interest or the competitors to move forward with the tournament at this time. Many teams are still qualifying for Nationals this weekend, and the low number of entries in events are not conducive to viable competition rounds.

We urge you all to relax this weekend, be refreshed, and join us for in person tournaments next year. Our tournament dates for the 2022-23 season are:

Bargain Belt October 15-16, 2022

Wolfpack Invitational February 11-13, 2023

Big Wave Dave (HS)/WolfCub Invitational (MS) April 15-16, 2023


All of our best!
