The All Alumni Tournament in summer 2015 will be the fourth annual event solely to celebrate the Alumni members of the IHSA. For years, a Tournament of Champions is run semi-annually for undergraduate riders. We extended this tradition to Alumni riders in the summer of 2012 and are very excited to run this event again in June 2015. The group of riders invited will span the entire United States and include up to 100 riders.We are inviting all IHSA Zones. 


Notes:
This event is being held to emulate the IHSA undergraduate tournament of champions in Alumni style but is not associated with the undergraduate event or Beckett Run Inc. This is not an official IHSA sanctioned event. We would encourage regions to formulate an Alumni Cup regional competition and the top 2 from that competition are invited to the annual final at the TOC. As an example, Zone 4, Region 4 has a top Alumni award for most points earned. Zone 3, Region 4 awards the Alumni Cup to the rider with the most points out of their top 7.
