The tournament has three divisions, men's, legends and Juniors and three teams will qualify for the Worlds. Landen says the games start on Friday night and run all weekend at the Garnet Elliott and Victoria Parks in Ingersoll. 

"All day Saturday they start at 9 am and run until 9 or 10 o'clock at night and then on Sunday they start at 8:30 in the morning. The finals for men should be around 2:30 pm and the Legends and the Juniors, the final is at 12:30 p.m."
