Draza Mihailovic Cup 2019 Brisbane

 Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The tournament will be held at the “Southern Districts Basketball Association” (56 Zahel Streen, Carina).
The courts are the official training facility of the Brisbane Bullets and is the re-furbished location where DMC 2011 was held (Southern Districts Basketball Association).
The days are as follows:
  • Welcoming Night/Docek–21st December (Location to be determined)Most likely Wacol St Nikola Church.
  • Day 1 Games – 22nd December.
  • Day 2 Rest – 23rd December.
  • Day 3 Games – 24th December.
On the bright side, the stadium has 4 good courts, which will allow us to cater for quite a few games, and allow us to play more quality games. We will also have more flexibility with game times, which we can discuss leading up to the tournament. For instance we could have the senior games a little bit later in the day, and the juniors a little bit earlier in the day. The courts have also been booked for 10 hours each day which will allow us to spread some of the games out so we do not cram games one after the other and give players a bit of time to recover.
We are also in talks with the referees to determine the game time structure and were thinking of making each game 4 quarters with 2 last minutes of each quarter being stopped (rather than 2 halves).
We are also open to suggestions on what your thoughts are on this, as I am sure that since we have reasonable facilities and courts, that everyone would like to take advantage of a more court time if possible.

With the games finishing on the 24th, I was thinking that maybe we could make plans for the doing something together on the 25th and 26th of December at the Gold Coast? Maybe we can occupy a nice beach somewhere
I think that along with the tournament, we should strive to spend time together outside of the court as well. Play some beach footbal, volleyball, bbq, have a few drinks etc.

Lots of Love,
Pavle Krkeljas
