State Week Updates

State week is finally here!


Who else can’t wait?  I see you out there superfans – your emails with questions and social media posts about your plans and favorite teams are making the time fly by until we get to the big event on Friday.



There are a LOT of updates to the state page:


New order of performance

New livestream information (its FREE!)

New apparel guide

New food coupon



The apparel guide has pricing and some previews of the T-shirt and Sweatshirt.  The apparel designer tells me the sweatshirt color looks a bit too tan from what it is in real life.  So keep that in mind.  Also, be aware that apparel, souvenirs, and programs are cash or check transactions only.  No credit cards can be accepted for those items!


If you’re planning on snagging a reserved state seat, be aware all tickets will be digital.  Your valid email address has to be provided to get your seat.  Hopefully this smooths things out getting into the Target Center.  Lines to enter can be long, and security works differently than a high school hosting.  Be sure to read the spectators policies for more info on what you can bring to the Target Center.


See you for the tournament preview on Thursday and live commentary on the event on Friday and Saturday.
