We felt very welcome at the welcome night on the first day. It was an amazing night to meet new faces from the States. They were from Waikato, Auckland,WA, SA,NSW and Queensland.

DPP_819The two teams from NZ were, Waikato and Auckland, we were excited to prepare for the games with the States on the second day. The States were vert strong against us, they played a really great game. We learned the two shots rules more and were able to challenge more with them. Waikato and Auckland were trying to beat the States on the third day, the competition was enjoyed by the States. The game were hard game too. Then we went to a presentation night at the casino. It was a fantastic night and beautiful dinner was enjoyed by all.
