“Magic” Matt DiDomizio has changed the dates of his upcoming jai-alai tournament this spring in Berlin, Connecticut.
The event has been postponed two weeks till the end of April – the 28-30th, again on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The reason for the change was that several players would not have been able to make it that mid-April weekend, which was reported here on the Pelota Press a couple weeks ago. It was also changed to coincide with his 13th anniversary date. If you recall, last years event was held on basically the same dates.
The change was made as a few players from the Tampa Bay area were getting to book their flights, and already they have booked their flights for the new dates were finalized this Friday morning.
The weather should be a little nicer and the dogwoods should just starting to bloom around that time.
