March 4: Nothing But Net

To close out the fest, we want to dunk on you. At the Unity Church gym and hall on Saturday March 4th from 3pm to 9pm. Yep, it's a benefit that closes out the Rhino fest and helps us do the next one! There will be a meal! Matt 'Coach' Rieger will tell a basketball story! Some music will be played, but mostly we will be hoopin'... ballin... fillin' up the peach basket. You can put your three-person team together and see if you got what it takes to go up against the Curiousors or you can say "I am ready coach but teamless" and we will match you up with some others. But we won't help you practice, we don't want you to practice, we want to win! ...and I will say it again win!!!! us!!! Let me know if you're in. -Beau
