Jackson Purchase Swing
From February 3rd to February 5th, the BCFU team traveled up to Murray, Kentucky, to compete in a swing tournament. We took a large team to this tournament, so the results are lengthy, but impressive. We did really well as a team, with champions in persuasion and ADS, and even multiple Novice champions!

The team did really well this weekend. The amount of people from the team who competed at this tournament was impressive and BCFU showed how strong of a competition the team is. Although some team members were disappointed about missing the Super Bowl, we did watch the losing play of our beloved Atlanta Falcons while in a gas station, which only seems appropriate. The team came together and had a good time, whether it was during competition or just goofing off in the car.
